How to make eggless chocolate cake in the microwave/Instant chocolate cake in microwave without egg
Updated: Jan 10
Craving chocolate cake but don’t have the time or energy to bake it in the oven! Don’t worry! If you have a microwave, you are all set! This moist and delicious chocolate cake will be ready in no time 😊 Just make sure you have some vanilla ice cream in your freezer! That would be a killer accompaniment to this 👍
Yield: 3-4 servings
All purpose flour... 1 cup
Cocoa powder... 6 tbsp.
Cane sugar (powdered)... 1/2 cup
Cooking oil... 1/4 cup
Milk (lukewarm)... 1/2 cup
Vinegar (for buttermilk)... 1 tbsp.
Coffee powder...1/2 tsp.
Salt... 1/4 tsp.
Baking soda... 1/4 tsp.
Baking powder... 1 tsp.
Semi sweet chocolate morsels...1/2 cup
Coffee powder enhances the chocolaty flavor of the cake.
You can use any coffee powder you have (espresso powder or even regular Nescafe instant coffee powder)
Add vinegar into the milk. Keep it aside so it turns into buttermilk
Pour oil into a big bowl. Add powdered sugar and mix well
Add salt, coffee powder, buttermilk and baking soda. Whisk well
Place a strainer over the bowl and add all purpose flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder
Mix well and sift
Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients
Thin out the batter with 1/4 cup of water
Thinning out a thick batter in the end ensures a smooth lump free batter compared to adding all the liquid from the start
Mix using the "cut and fold method"
Use a microwave safe dish to pour the batter in
I used a plate and lined it with parchment paper
Even out the surface of the batter as much as possible
Bake the cake using the normal quick start mode of your microwave. You don't have to switch to the convection mode. Bake for 4-5 minutes (the timing depends on the power of individual microwave ovens). My cake took 4.5 minutes to bake. The cake is completely cooked if the centre is not sticky and a toothpick poked in the centre comes out clean.
While the cake cools down, let's quickly make the glaze!
Heat the chocolate morsels in the microwave till they just start to melt. This should take like 20 to 30 seconds
Drizzle melted butter and combine into a smooth glaze
The consistency of the glaze can be adjusted based on the amount of melted butter added
Cut the cake in whatever shape you like, dip it in the glaze and enjoy!
My kids surely had fun with their playdoh molds (check out the video :))
