Quick Chocolate Cake (Microwave)

I tried it many times and it came out well.Since cardamom or vanilla essence is added,the egg smell gets diminished considerably.Strict Vegetarians can avoid egg. Busy people and who cannot prepare the batter, just get a Pillsbury Instant cake mix and follow the instructions on the cover.Try this at home and enjoy this Yummy Chocolate Cake deliciously.

Quick Chocolate Cake (Microwave) - Rich Chocolate cake in few mins time


200 gm all purpose flour
150 ml water
40 gm cocoa powder
3/4 tsp baking powder
1 dry yeast corn-don't add more
100 ml water
2 eggs -beaten well(Vegetarians can avoid this or add enough essence to get rid of eggy flavor)
150 gm sugar -powdered
50 gm butter
3 tbsp refined oil
12 cashew nuts chopped fine
20 raisins chopped fine
1 tsp cardamom or vanilla essence
2 tbsp choco chips


1.Add all purpose flour,cocoa powder and powdered sugar.Mix well and  sieve this flour mixture 2 times atleast.
2.Beat the eggs well.
3.Add baking powder(last) so that it does not make the flour harder and mix well.Add water little by
little and stir it slowly with a spatula so that all the ingredients get evenly mixed.
4.Add the beaten eggs and the yeast corn and beat the mixture for 2 mins with a hand mixer - atleast till
a smooth batter forms without any lumps.If the batter is too thick add water to get a dropping consistency.
5.Add half the butter and vegetable oil and beat one min using a hand mixer.
6.Add roasted cashews,chopped raisins,vanilla or cardamom essence.Mix this well.
7.Pour this batter in to a butter greased microwave bowl upto 2/3rd height of the bowl (leaving 1 1/2 inch
space empty) and cover it with lid.
8.Microwave this on Medium-high for 4 mins.Take the bowl out and sprinkle choco chips on top.
9.Then pre-heat the oven to 150 degree C and bake for 12-15 mins.( or U can Microwave this on high for 6 mins)
10.Leave the cake bowl undisturbed for atleast 50 mins.
11.Then,Turn the cake upside down after loosing the edges with a knife and serve it or Icing it.

If u don't have a lid cover it with 3 layers of paper towels. Those who are using cake oven can pour this batter in a greased cake tin and bake this in a preheated oven at 180 degree C for 20-30 mins.Remove the tin and let it cool for 10 mins.
