Microwave LAVA Cake

I have been trying a recipe for a quick lava cake. Sadly, I don't own an oven so I wanted a microwave version. 
I tried many recipes until yesterday I came up with a perfect recipe.

For the best lava cakes you need a good quality dark chocolate  (attention Pakistani please don't purchase low quality of dark chocolate. It is not worth it) 

Try the dark chocolate which has cocoa more then 45%. The one I used is 45 % so you can see the chocolate is not runny.
