Microwave Eggless Black Forest Cake Recipe - Microwave Cake Recipes


I got mails from viewers asking me to do some microwave baking recipes. You know what came to my mind first, i should make a black forest cake in microwave. Because it is one of the cake which take lots of time to do, atleast half a day is needed to make this cake, so i wanted to make a quick version of it..


Today i decided to make that cake. First i thought of using my microwave chocolate cake as the base, but then i thought of using a different recipe. So i came across this recipe. I took that recipe, halved it and baked into two small cakes. Because if i make a hige cake, i will eat it completely by myself which is not good for my waist. So made a small cake.


The result was like amazing. I was surprised totally. The cake turned out juicy and moist. Loved it so much. It tasted more yummier than my black forest cake, hmm may be equally. 


So try this out and let me know how it turns out..


Preparation Time : 5 mins + 15 mins 
Baking Time : 4 mins
Setting Time : 1 hour
Makes : 5 to 6 slices
Microwave Bowl Size - 7 to 8 cm

Ingredients:

All Purpose Flour / Maida - 3/4 cup / 90 grams
Granulated Sugar / White Sugar - 1/2 cup / 100 grams
Cocoa Powder - 2 tblspn
Baking Soda - 1/4 tsp
Baking Powder - 1/4 tsp
Milk - 1/2 cup / 120 ml
Oil - 2 tblspn
Vanilla Essence - 1 tsp
Vinegar or Lemon Juice - 1.5 tsp

For Whipped Cream:
Whipping Cream Powder - 1/2 cup
Ice Cold Water - 3/4 cup

For Decorating:
Cherries - 1/2 cup
Dark Chocolate Bar for Curls & Grates

For Syrup:
Sugar - 2 tblspn
Water - 1/2 cup
Vanilla Essence - 1/2 tsp

Method:

Take flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa powder in a sifter and sieve it. Set aside.

Take sugar, milk, vanilla, oil in a bowl. Mix well till it is melted.

Add in the flour mix in and mix well. Add in vinegar and mix well.Batter done.

Now take a microwave safe bowl, line the base with parchment paper, brush the bottom and sides with oil. 

Pour half of the batter in and place the bowl inside microwave for 2 mins. Once it is baked, remove it from oven and let it cool for 2 mins, invert it to the plate. Peel off the parchment paper.

Now bake another cake using the remaining cake batter like the same way. Let both the cakes cool completely.

Now make whipped cream, take whipping cream powder and ice water in a bowl, beat it till thick and stiff. You can use fresh whipping cream in place of whipping cream powder and beat it till thick. Set this in the fridge till use.

Now take the cherries in a mixer and blend till it is crushed. Set aside.

Make syrup, take sugar, water and vanilla in a bowl and mix well. Syrup done.

Now take chocolate bar and use a peeler to make chocolate curls and grate it to make chocolate grates.

Now take the cooled cake, slit it in half. Place the cake in a plate, use strips of parchment paper to surround the cake. Now Brush the cake with syrup generously.

Spread the cake with some whipped cream. Top with some of the crushed cherries.

Place another cake on top, brush the top with some of the syrup again, then whipped topping and cherry topping. Repeat this for the four layers. 

Now spread whipped cream all over the cake, top with chocolate curls, use chocolate grates and spread on the sides of the cake.

Now chill this whole cake for 1 or 2 hours.

Slice and serve.

Notes:

1)I used a 7 to 8 cm round cake pan, I baked two cakes using this batter, it took me 2 mins to make a cake. if you use a bigger cake pan, then it will take lesser time. So bake accordingly. If you overbake the cake then it will turn hard.

2)This cake is perfect for making blackforest cake, because it absorbs the syrup a lot better.

3)My microwave has highest power of 800 watts.

4)This has to be done in normal micro mode, in which you cook your vegetables. This cake cannot be done in convection mode.

HERE IS A QUICK VIDEO:

    Your measures are just perfect! This is my third cake and came out well too! Soft n sponge!

    Just wanted to know which dark chocolate bar you used for curls(decorations)? Also, please interpret 800wt in microwave mode? Sorry, am new to microwave oven as well. I set P100 with 5-10mints in my oven-microwave mode. It took time to cook but then came out well-soft at the end.

    Your receipts are making me to try all new stuffs in my places... N there starts the magic-to impress ppl at home with some variety!

    Thank you once again! Great work Aarthi! Keep going!

    God bless you!
