Eggless Microwave Chocolate Cake

After dosas, I think it is the turn of MW chocolate cakes in blogosphere. When Srivally announced Cake as this month's theme for MEC, no confusion over which recipe to post, since I have only one fool proof MW cake recipe. This cake recipe was in the booklet that came with the oven. So here is my tried and tested version of the chocolate cake.

All purpose flour - 1 cup
Sugar -3/4 cup
Curd - 1/2 cup
Butter- 1/2 cup
Baking powder - 1 tsp
Cooking soda - 1/2 tsp
Milk - 5 tbsp
Cocoa powder - 2tbsp

Sieve flour,coco powder, baking powder and cooking soda in a bowl.Whisk butter and sugar until fluffy and creamy.
Add curd to it and blend them together .
Stir in the dry ingredients to the wet mixture slowly.
Add milk and gradually stir the mixture.
Pour the batter to a greased MW safe dish
MW at 100% power for 6 minutes.
Cool for 10 minutes.
The cake batter consistency should be thin that when a spoon of batter dropped from height should fall like a ribbon. you can add more milk to get that consistency.

Serve with tea or coffee

So another chocolate cake at Srivally's MEC: Cake event.

    bhags, baking in MW is relatively easy. Since most of the MW cake recipes are simple.

    ssMom, It would have been nice if u had that book.

    Cham, thank you so much for the surprise on your blog.
