MICROWAVE CHOCOLATE CAKE VIDEO TUTORIAL

VARIATIONS
● If you want to make these microwave  cake even more decadent add in some chocolate chips in the batter.
● You can bake this microwave cake in mugs as well. Pour the prepared cake batter into individual coffee mugs and bake in microwave for 2  minutes.
● You can make this microwave chocolate cake with egg by replacing vinegar and baking soda with 2 eggs and will need to reduce the liquid by few tablespoons. ( 1 large egg will also work).
● You can add nuts and dry fruits in the cake batter.

WHICH BAKING DISH CAN BE USED
Since we are making this cake in a microwave mode and not microwave convection mode so it is very important to note that the container or pan used is microwave safe. Use microwave safe glass ware, silicone ware, plastic ware or ceramic containers. I prefer glass or ceramic ware.
Never use regular metal oven pans for any of your microwave baking.

CAN THIS BE BAKED IN MICROWAVE CONVECTION MODE AND OVEN (OTG)?
This recipe is a versatile recipe so YES you can bake it in microwave convection mode, OTG and even in pressure cooker over a stove. The cake turns out beautifully. If you like this recipe and want to bake it in an microwave with convection mode or OTG (oven toaster griller), you can bake it at preheated oven at 180 degree celsius for 30 mins or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Just remember to preheat the oven for 10 minutes before starting to bake.

PRESSURE COOKER METHOD
Put a stand inside the cooker or pan then preheat it for 5-10 minutes. Remove the gasket and whistle from the cooker cover. Place the cake pan on the stand and just cover the cooker with the lid. Bake at low heat for 40 minutes or until a toothpick or skewer inserted comes out clean.

HELPFUL TIPS WHEN BAKING CAKES IN THE MICROWAVE
● When cooking and baking on microwave at full power it’s important to stop in between and check because timing can differ slightly depending on the microwave. If you are baking a cake check your bake by inserting a toothpick in the middle of the cake, if the toothpick comes out clean, your cake is done.
● My microwave is 1000 watt so the baking time in my recipe is based on my microwave watt. This means that your baking time will vary by either a few minutes more or less depending on your microwave.
● Do not overbake. Keep in mind that in microwave cooking the dish continues to cook for at least another 2 minutes after it has been removed from the microwave.
● It is very important that the container or pan used is microwave safe. You can use microwave safe glassware, silicone ware and plastic ware.

TOPPINGS AND FROSTING SUGGESTIONS
These can be as simple as a tea cake or a snack drizzle with homemade chocolate sauce. Also you can elaborate and make it fancy depending on the occasion or your mood. Here are a few toppings if you would like to give it a try:
● You can use a simple sugar glaze for topping
● Simply dust with powdered sugar.
● Drizzle or spread a generous amount of chocolate sauce to make it more decadent and chocolatey.
● Sprinkle chopped nuts and dry fruits
● Make layer cakes with fresh fruits or fruit crush filling and frost it with your choice of frosting like whipped cream, cream cheese or buttercream.
● You can also top the frosted cake with seasonal fruits.
● You can use chocolate ganache for filling and frosting the cake.

Cooking : 5 minutes

9☆ 1 cup = 240 ml

1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt

Step by step pictorial instructions to make 5 minutes chocolate cake:

Take a microwave safe bowl or pan and grease it with oil or butter.  You may line a parchment paper as well. Keep aside.

In a mixing bowl add in the milk, sugar and oil. Stir nicely and let the sugar dissolve.

Take a sift and add in the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Sieve the ingredients together. Gently fold and make a smooth batter.

Add in the essence and vinegar or lemon juice and give a gentle quick mix.Pour the batter into the greased cake pan and tap the pan couple of times to release any air bubbles.

Place the cake pan in the microwave and microwave on high powder for 5 minutes. A toothpick inserted should come out clean. If it’s not done then bake for 1 minute more. Keep an eye from 4 minutes onwards since the microwave heat differs from one another.

Take it out of the microwave and allow to stand for about 10 minutes. Demould it and allow to cool down completely.

Once the cake is completely cooled down, spread the chocolate sauce over the cake. Randomly drizzle the melted white chocolate and swirl it with a toothpick or skewer.

Cut and serve. Enjoy!

NOTES:
● If you like this recipe and want to bake it in an microwave with convection mode or OTG (oven toaster griller), you can bake it at preheated oven at 180 degree celsius for 30 mins or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Just remember to preheat the oven for 10 minutes before starting to bake.
● Each microwave will vary so I recommend starting at 4 minutes and going for 30-60 seconds increments until it bounces back to the touch and a toothpick or skewer comes out clean.
