Chocolate Cake (in the microwave)

This recipe should be given due credit to the person who sent it in to the Sangam (ghar bhaite shopping - in Mumbai) but mom didn't note down the name of the lady. So I will have to go ahead as it is. The reason I got all excited about this is because this cake can be made in a microwave and it chocolate cake !!!!
