Method

 
Spray a 23 cm microwave ring dish with non-stick spray. Line the base with paper towelling. Separate the egg yolks and whites in two bowls. Add the remaining ingredients, except the prepared cocoa, to the egg yolks. Beat well till all the ingredients are blended. Whisk the egg whites till soft peaks are formed and fold into the batter. Turn half the batter into the prepared tin. Add the cocoa to the remaining batter, mix and pour on top of the batter in the tin. Mix lightly with a spoon. Place the tin on an upturned saucer in the microwave oven and microwave for 6 minutes on 100 percent power or till the cake has shrunk from the sides of the tin. Leave for 10 minutes. Turn out on a wire rack and cool. Place the chocolate squares in a glass bowl and microwave for 1-2 minutes on 100 percent power. The chocolate squares retain their shape even when they start to melt, so stir well after a minute and microwave slightly longer if necessary till just melted. Pour over the cake and decorate with mint leaves, if desired.
