Microwave eggless cake recipe

microwave chocolate cake Last tuesday was our wedding anniversary. So I decided to bake a cake. I really don't get enough time for making cakes often, though I want to(mainly to improve my baking skills:o)),and hence I am in lookout for such occasions. And the microwave cake took just a few minutes.
I took the recipe for the cake from here. I just made minor changes
Ingredients-
All purpose flour - 1 cup
Milk- 1 and1/2 cup
Cocoa powder- 1tbsp
Baking powder - a small pinch
Oil- 1/2cup
Sugar- 1 cup
Dried fruits- 1cup(I used cranberries, apricots,raisins)
Vanilla essence- few drops
Whipped cream and grated chocolate for decorating.
Method-
Add milk in a pan and boil it. Add the dried fruits and leave it for sometime till they become a little tender and allow the milk to cool down. Blend this mixture in a blender till the fruits are ground well. Add the oil and blend it again to a thicker consistency. Then next goes the sugar and again blend it for a few minutes. Transfer this mixture to a bowl. Sieve the flour along with baking powder and cocoa powder. Add this flour in small parts into the mixture mixing it gently.Add few drops of vanilla essence. Mix gently.
Grease a microwave proof bowl and pour the batter in it. Microwave on high for 5-7 minutes checking in between. Allow to stand for a minute. Remove the cake and cool it. Decorate as you wish. I added some whipped cream and grated chocolate on the cake just before cutting. microwave chocolate cake
Cake really tasted good. It was quite spongy and moist too. Keep checking in between, when the cake is getting microwaved. Overdoing may cause the cake to get hard.

Hi Sowmya,

Nice Cake recipe. But can you tell me how long it took for you to make this cake in microwave mode. And I assume that it is it ok to use the borosil or pyrex.Am I right?

Best
Sowmya

Sowmya Madhavan said...

Sowmya-It takes around 5-7 minutes..even if the centre of the cake doesn't seems to be cooked,remove it from the microwave oven..the cake will cook for sometime even after you remove from the microwave..if you overdo it, the cake will turn hard.,.
Yes you can use borosili, Pyrex etc..hope this helps..let me know if you try it..thanks..
