Microwave Chocolate Cake in a Jiffy!!

I did not have any plans to bake that night but I had to make it because its been a tradition at our home since our marriage, to welcome each one’s birthday in the midnight over a hot cup of coffee and some good cake.  So made this cake in a jiffy for my boys for Midnight Birthday celebration, since the official cake was going to arrive only in the morning!!

Microwave Chocolate Cake in a Jiffy
Total Preparation Time: 20 Minutes
Serves: 5-6
  • 2  cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½  cups sugar – (you can make it 2 cups if you like more sweetness)
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • I teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs
  • ¾  cup butter softened

Sieve the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder/soda and salt in a bowl and keep it aside. In a large bowl,  beat the eggs, sugar and butter till it blends well. Add the sieved dry ingredients slowly and fold it in. Grease the microwave-safe dish and pour the cake mix into it. Microwave on 60% power i.e., 480W for 10-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Once done, remove from Microwave and cool on a wire rack.

Since, it was close to midnight, I didn’t have any energy left to make hot chocolate fudge. Just melted some dark chocolate in the microwave for a minute and poured it over the cake.  Bling….Yummy Midnight Birthday Cake is ready. =)  This is one good recipe which came with the Microwave Oven purchase, which I often use.
Do try it!! It can be made in a jiffy even at midnightJ.

Points to Ponder:

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made,.......

  1. Hi Leena, Thanks for visiting my space. This cake looks very good and the molten chocolate gives it a rich look. About your question on my blog, to get it cleanly out of the pan, after you grease the pan sprinkle some plain flour (maida) or cocoa powder evenly on the greased pan. Then pour the cake batter onto the greased and floured pan to get the finished cake out easily. Good luck to your blog. :)

  2. Thank Jay and La! Sorry for the late response, Have been busy and realized it later :(
