We took our favorite decadent flourless chocolate cake and gave it a fast and easy twist — no baking required! Forget heating up the oven, because this cake can be made in a matter of minutes, and it's all done in the microwave.

- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cocoa powder
Confectioners' sugar and fresh berries, for garnish
- Set aside about 2 tablespoons of the chocolate chips for later. Melt the remaining chocolate in the microwave in 30-second intervals for 1-2 minutes or until it's completely melted. Add the butter and vanilla extract, and keep mixing until it's thoroughly melted and smooth. Let it cool slightly.
- Whisk egg, then gradually add in granulated sugar and salt and whisk until it becomes thick and pale yellow, about 5 minutes. Fold in cooled chocolate mixture, then sift cocoa powder over top. Gently fold mixtures together until no streaks remain. Finally fold in remaining chocolate chips.
- Divide batter between 2 mugs. Microwave until tops are just firm to touch and centers are gooey when pierced with toothpick, about 2 minutes. Carefully remove mugs from the microwave (use a towel or oven mitt). Dust with confectioners' sugar, and serve warm with berries.
