5 minute chocolate cake?

 I made one and it didnt rise at all  in fact it was too dense and dry.Does it require baking powder /baking soda?
I like the recipe because it can be made in a jiffy.Could you please help me on this?

Is it the 5 min chocolate cake from the instructable? The one in a mug, made in the microwave? Egg functions as the leavener in that recipe. Try with a tiny bit more egg :)

Yes, cake needs something to leaven it, or it will be a puck.
