Looking for a faster and easy way to make a cake? You can actually bake a cake in your microwave as a quick alternative to the conventional gas or electric oven. Microwave is a nice kitchen gadget to have for home bakers.

So many of us have a convection microwave at home but we do not use it for baking because we have so many questions and confusion about baking in microwave, but believe me it's not that tough. You just need to keep a few points in mind about preheating microwave; time and power settings and you will become an expert in only a few attempts.

Something about Convection Microwave
In India we have different types of microwave ovens like basic/solo, convection and grill microwave ovens. Convection microwave ovens use a fan and a heating element to create air flow patterns inside the microwave oven. This circulation of heated air is called convection. The continuous hot air flow ensures optimum browning and crisping of the food in the fastest possible time, making them perfect for baking cakes, muffins and more.

So friends, today I am going to describe the recipe for egg-less chocolate cake. Simply follow this recipe to bake mouthwatering cake in your microwave. Share your experience with us once you try it. I will share more cakes and cookies recipe on my blog soon. 

Ingredients

  • ½ tin (200ml/0.84cup) Condensed milk  
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup oil
  • 4 tbsp. powdered sugar
  • 100 gm (1 cup) All purpose flour
  • ¼  cup cocoa
  • ½ tsp. soda-bi-crab
  • 1 tsp. baking powder



Method

  • Sift all purpose flour, cocoa , baking soda and baking powder and keep aside
  • In another bowl beat sugar and condensed milk till fluffy, add oil, vanilla essence and again beat well
  • Now add sifted dry ingredients to this and mix everything together, beat well for 3-4 min till the mixture is smooth and light
  • Place the low metal rack inside the oven and preheat at 180ºC on convection mode, it will take less than 5 min to get heated
     
  • Transfer the batter to a greased glass bowl and add some tutti frutti to it, I have used square glass dish
  • Microwave on convection mode for 25 minutes, check if cooked properly with a knife or tooth pick (should come out clean). If not, continue with same settings for few more minutes till done  
  • let it cool for 5 minutes inside the microwave
  • Let the cake cool down, transfer to a serving platter upside down 
  • Pour chocolate sauce on top and decorate with tutti frutti
  • Your tasty egg-less chocolate cake is ready to indulge!


Note:

  • I have used LG microwave, use manual provided for setting and instructions.
  • Make sure to use deep and wide microwave safe dish. So that cake batter will not overflow from dish.
  •  Whisk, electric hand mixer or  stand mixer can be used to beat the batter but be careful do not over beat the batter .
