Microwave chocolate cake- in 5 minutes

microwave chocolate cake Long time since I baked a cake in my microwave. When I bought the microwave in the beginning of his year, I had tried many cakes including the carrot apple cake and eggless chocolate cake. And then when we shifted to a new house, I got an in built oven. So I started baking using the oven and got good results. I got addicted to the oven and forgot all about baking in the microwave. Later some friends wanted to know about baking in the microwave and so requested recipe for it. So I made a small cake in a bowl. It tasted nice. But as I said before, it is not as spongy as it comes in the convectional oven. Its kind of chewy like that of brownie. But is definitely soft and moist. And the whole preperation as well as the baking was over in 20 minutes.I got this recipe from Nita mehta's cookbook. I modified a little according to my taste.

Ingredients-
Self raising flour- 1/2 cup
Egg- 2
Milk- 1/4cup
Oil- 1/2 cup
Granulated sugar- 1 cup(you can add powdered sugar also, but not sugar crystals)
Cocoa powder-1tbsp
Instant coffee powder-1tsp(optional)

Method-
Beat the egg and sugar till its creamy. Add oil and mix well. Then add the flour.Mix and then add the milk. Now add cocoa powder and coffee powder(optional). Mix well. Pour this batter in a greased microwave safe deep bowl. Microwave for 4 minutes. Allow to stand for 4-5 minutes. Then cool the cake and remove from the bowl.microwave chocolate cake
