5 Minute Microwave Cake

I love this cake because it's so simple to make and it's ready in a jiffy! It's also a nice one-portion dessert if you're trying to cut down. You can make this in a regular mug or if you want to get fancy with plating, you can use a paper cup and demould the cake when it cools down, like how I have done below.

Everyone's microwave settings differ so keep checking on your cake to make sure it's done. Insert a knife into the cake and if it comes out clean (with no sticky crumbs) then it's ready!

Try serving your cake with one of these scrumptious sauces:

Salted Caramel

Strawberry Wine Sauce

Fresh Mango Coulis

SERVES 1

What you need-

4 tbsp whole wheat flour

2 tbsp cocoa powder

2 tbsp sugar

1/2 tsp baking powder

2 tsp oil

4 tbsp milk

1 tbsp chocolate chips (optional)

Putting it all together-

  1. Mix the dry ingredients together in a mug or bowl.

  2. Add the wet ingredients and mix till the batter is smooth. Mix in the chocolate chips (if using).

  3. Pour the batter into a paper cup (if using) or bake it straight in the mug.

  4. Cook it in the microwave for 1 min 30 secs. You could put it for 1 minute and then keep checking at 10 sec intervals. The cake is done when a knife inserted in it comes out clean.

  5. Let it cool down and dig in!

  6. If you're using a paper cup, let it cool completely (around 5-7 minutes) and then with a pair of scissors, cut a slit down the side of the cup. Carefully peel the sides of the cup away and place the cake on a plate. Now you can add whatever elements you like. I used fresh mango and banana!
