Microwave Chocolate Cake


This Recipe works best in microwave oven. Chocolate Cake with a hint of Coffee really tasted Good. My apartment kid's tasted and certified it as a Good Cake. Surprisingly my hubby also liked it. so this recipe is yet another Microwave Chocolate Cake Recipe from the blog world. I have taken care on measuring the exact ingredients and produced here. so just follow the recipe. it yields about 8 slice's.

Chocolate Cake


Microwave Chocolate cake Recipe


Chocolate CakePrep Time10 mins 
Cooking Time: 20 mins  
Serves4
Recipe TypeDessert

Ingredients:

All Purpose Flour / Maida - 1 cup / 8 oz

Castor Sugar / Powdered Sugar - 1 cup / 8 oz
Butter- 2 tbsp's
Egg's - 2
Unsweetened Coco Powder - 1/2 cup / 4 oz
Oil - 1/3 cup / 3 oz
Baking Powder - 1 tsp
Coffee Powder - 2 tsp's
Vanilla Essence - 5 ml
Salt - a pinch


Method:

Mix All purpose flour and Baking Powder and salt. Sieve them for at least 3 time's. This is to combine the baking powder evenly along with the flour. Mix Coco Powder and Coffee powder with the flour and keep aside. [Let me call it all as Flour Mix.]

Beat the 2 egg's for at least 2 minutes and set aside. Beat the Sugar and Butter, add whisked egg's and Oil to sugar and Butter Mix. keep beating all for 3 minute's at least. add vanilla essence and mix well. [Let me call it all as Egg mix.]

Now keep adding the Flour Mix little my little to the Egg mix, Mix them well with a Spatula.
If the Mix is so thick, add few drop's of warm milk to make the flour egg mix little thin.

Grease a 3 inch Microwave safe bowl with Butter and Line it with a Baking Sheet. Pour the Flour Egg Mix to the Bowl and level the top by the spatula.

Microwave the cake on High [900 W] for about 3 minute's. To check whether the cake is cooked or not, insert a knife and ensure it comes out clean without any sticky, when pulled out.

Now Pre-Heat the Microwave oven up to 220C, and put the cake for about 2 to 3 minutes for the top of the cake to get slightly browned. Remove it from the Microwave and Let the cake cool
for about 5 - 7 minute's. Dust some Powdered Sugar upon the Cake if desired.


Microwave Chocolate Cake

If you wish to decorate and fill the cake with whipped cream, slice the cake and fill the cream, only after the cake is cooled completely. I used Blue Bird Instant Whipped Cream. I just followed the packet instructions and it worked well for me.

Thou the cake looks stiff and not moist in the Pictures. it was little moist and tasted pacca chocolaty but with a hint of coffee. Its my Milestone Cake. I used Little Butter, and less oil, inspite, it tasted Great. For this recipe, you got to use 4 tbsp's of butter and 1/4 cup/ 4 oz of oil.

    1. you can pre heat microwave by letting it first only heated by oven system and after 4 to 5 min you can now put the cake inside to get the cake be thick at the top

  9. Thank You All for your encouraging Verdict's.

    Chakhlere..I got a Pre-Heat Button on my microwave panel, i press and choose the temp for pre-heating. check your microwave manual to look on pre-heating option. I think so it comes IN Grill oven's or in convection grill oven's.

    Thank You Bharathy..Naan sonna ninaichatha neenga solreenga..Naane unga cake parthu inspire agi panna, neenga unga cake a ippadi solreenga...I always love and trust your recipe's.

    Thanks for the Award Lone Acorne!!

  36. Hi. i was in search of chocolate cake and landed up in ur blog. i found ur blog so interesting. Hats of to u.. I tried this receipe. It tasted good. but i have few doubts to clarify using microwave while baking cake.
    1. Before baking a cake we need to first preheat the oven right?
    2.After preheating it, while baking i am not sure how much temperature and minutes need to keep exactly. AS every few minutes i am under checking whether its set or not. The top most layer is little bit hard , other portions was soft. but still its not set properly in middle part. so i need to clarifty. can u help me out. Thanks

  38. Hi,

    With the recepie mentioned above, it came out worst. We have mixed all the ingradients mentioned quantity. Used grill ovens and tried with 3 minutes 850 watts but came up of unboiled cake, so used another 3.5 minutes and found cake cooked well. But after leaving for 5 - 10 mintues tried to cut the cake but came up with ugly cake.

  41. Hi Lavi, I have been drooling over your blog and tried your basic chocolate cake and bhindi fry recipes so far. However, I made the chocolate cake using sunflower oil instead of butter - it turned out pretty good.

    I am just not sure which butter to use as I have only baked once or twice before - is it ok to use the white coimbature butter from which we make ghee or is there some other type of butter to use?

  52. I tired it this morning and i followed the exact same procedure as you mentioned above. The Dough had come out really well and was tasty.

    After pouring the dough into the bowl and when I started to microwave in exact 2.30 the dough started to boil and started to over flow.

    Can you tell me what would have gone wrong here, I measured each of the ingredient and prepared :(

    1. Hari, check your microwave's high power. mine is 900w. if yours is more, then yours get baked soon. and overflowing may be because your bowl may be small!
