To celebrate this day, i am having a special recipe for you all. Many of my viewers has asked me whether we can make cake in microwave or stove top. My answer for that will be yes we can make and i will post that recipe soon. So here is the answer for the first part, microwave cake baking. I have a yummy moist eggless chocolate cake recipe which can be made in microwave. And i will answer the second part, which is stove top baking soon.
This recipe makes a small round cake. If you wanna make a bigger cake, simply double the recipe and use a bigger pan. And you could frost the cake with whatever icing you like. Check out this link for all icing recipes.
And if you are in mood for more microwave single serving icing. Check out my Nutella Mug Cake & Chocolate Cherry Cake.
Preparation Time : 5 mins
Baking Time : 4 to 5 mins
Serves - 3 to 4
All purpose flour / Maida - 1/2 cup / 60 grams
Sugar - 1/4 cup / 50 grams
Cocoa Powder - 3 tblspn
Curd / Yogurt - 2 tblspn (Use little sour curd)
Baking Soda - 1/4 tsp
Water - 1/3 cup / 80 ml
Oil - 1/4 cup / 60 ml
Chocolate - 50 grams ( I used Milk ) Refer Notes
Butter - 1 tsp
Milk - 2 tblspn
Take curd in a bowl, add baking soda in it and mix well. Set that aside till use. Take flour and cocoa powder in a bowl and mix well.
Take water in a microwave safe bowl and microwave it for 1 mins.
Take it out and add oil, sugar and mix well till it is dissolved.
Add in curd mixture and give a mix.
Add in flour and cocoa mix and mix well so it well combined.
Now take a microwave safe bowl, add a tsp of oil and spread it all around the sides.
Pour the mixture in this bowl and microwave it for 5 mins. You have to keep a close look in this. Every oven is different. Mine got done in 4 mins. (Refer Notes)
Now remove it from the oven and leave it to cool completely.
When it is cooling, Lets make the icing. Take microwave safe bowl and add in chocolate and butter. Micro it for 30 sec. Now the chocolate will be melted. Add in milk and mix well so it gets the right consistency.
Now invert the cake over the plate. Pour icing over the cake and spread it evenly.
Top with a cherry or whatever topping you like.
Slice and Serve.
1)You can adjust the sugar level as you like.
2) If you want to cover the entire cake, then double the quantity of chocolate for icing.
3) My oven's maximum temparature is 800 watt. And the cake was done in 4 mins. So keep a eye on your cake.
4)This cake wont rise much, But it will rise a little. So dont over fill the bowl. Fill it halfway through.
5)You could use melted butter for oil.
6)Grease the bowl well, so the cake doesn't stick to the pan.
7)Allow the cake to cool completely before inverting.
8)Use little sour curd, that will react with baking soda and make the cake spongy.
