Chocolate Cake in 2 minutes???
Really ???? Yes…
1 minute preparation and 1 minute Baking…
This cake is ideal for your sweet cravings or for breakfast or when you just want to have a single serving or when you want little bit of cake for your Ice Cream Sundaes.
Also. your children can make it without making any mess.
This is because, all the ingredients are mixed in the cup itself and the same mug goes into microwave, and then you eat from the same mug. So, all it needs is just 1 mug and 1 spoon for mixing.So simple it is.
But just take care of certain things.
First of all, choose a Mug of slightly bigger size. The batter should be up til just half the Mug. This is because, we make this cake in microwave and as you all know, in microwave batters rise too high and then settle down. So to avoid spilling, choose a cup of bigger size. In simple words, when you mix up everything, it should look as if the mug is half filled only.
Secondly, it is better to use powdered sugar. In case, you take granulated sugar then beat the batter till sugar dissolves. Otherwise you might feel sugar while eating.
Mix the batter nicely, scrapping it from the bottom fully. Normally, in a mug, some flour remains at the bottom on the sides. It is better to use a butter knife to mix the batter.
In my microwave, it took me 1 minute for 1 mug cake. When I baked 2 mug cakes simultaneously, it took one and a half minute. So as you increase the quantity, time also increases. However, since each microwave is different, might take slightly more in your microwave. So check after 1 minute by inserting a toothpick. If not done then run the microwave for 10 or 20 seconds more. But increase the time in very short intervals only.
Also, either you eat it immediately or transfer it into another bowl. It comes out very easily.
So now let’s make this…
4 Tbsp All Purpose Flour
1 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
1/4 tsp Baking Powder
1 Tbsp Powdered Sugar
1 tsp Oil
4 Tbsp Milk, at room temperature
- Take a microwave safe mug.
- Put all the ingredients in the mug in the given order- all purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, powdered sugar, oil and milk.
- Mix the batter nicely, preferably with a butter knife as it goes easily in to bottom edges of the mug also.
- Keep the mug in microwave for 1 minute, at 100% power.
- Check for doneness of the cake by inserting a toothpick.
- If done then take out or keep it for 10 or 20 seconds more.
- Serve as it is or take out in a bowl.
- Drizzle chocolate sauce, put sprinklers.
- Serve with love
Be careful with the time. If left more in microwave even for 30 seconds more, may turn into rock hard. So keep checking 1 minute onwards.
As you increase the number of mugs in microwave, increase time marginally.
