Eggless Chocolate Cake in Microwave
I dont have an oven. But the love of baking does not stop me from trying out recipes using the microwave. My first attempt to bake a chocolate cake in the microwave. It came out really good.
All purpose flour or Maida - 1.75 cups
Baking powder - 1 tsp
Cocoa - 3 tsp
Sugar - 1 cup
Cream - 0.75 cup
Curd (Should be thick) - 0.75 cup
Vanilla essence - 1/2 tsp
For the Frosting
Cocoa - 1.5 cups
Boiling Water - 1/4 cup
Butter - 3 tbsp
Powdered Sugar - 1 cup
Sift all purpose flour, baking powder and cocoa together. Powder sugar. Blend powdered sugar, cream, curd and vanilla essence together. Add the sifted ingredients to this and blend. Butter the cake dish and transfer the cake mixture to the cake dish. Micro on medium for 5 minutes and medium-high for 5 minutes. Allow it to stand for 3 minutes. Turn it over a flat plate and allow it to cool.
Add cocoa powder and boiling water. Stir until well-combined. Add the butter and blend until the mixture is smooth. Add powdered sugar until the sugar is mixed well. Blend till frosting is fluffy.
Once cake is completely cool, cut the cake horizontally and place one of the cake layers right side up. Frost the top of the layer. Place the second layer on top, and frost the top and sides of the cake. Slice and serve.
Eggless Chocolate cake is ready and Yummy!!!
