Steamed Chocolate Cake

Ingredients:
* ½ cup plus 2 tbsp cake flour
* 1 tbsp dutch-processed cocoa powder
* ½ tsp salt
* ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
* ¾ cup sugar

Preparations:
1) Grease 2 (4-inch) heatproof bowls or mugs. Set aside.

2) Sift cake flour, cocoa powder and salt into a bowl.

3) Cream butter and sugar in another bowl using a wooden spoon until smooth. Add egg and vanilla extract; mix until well combined. Add flour mixture and mix; mix until well combined.

4) Divide batter between prepared bowls. Top each with 1 tablespoon chopped chocolate. Cover with parchment paper and foil.
