How to Bake a Cake in a Microwave?
To bake a chocolate cake at home, you need just a handful of ingredients, including milk, flour, sugar, eggs, and cocoa powder. With the right temperature and preparation method, you can bake a cake with perfect consistency.
Here is a simple chocolate cake recipe that you can make in your microwave oven:
Set the temperature: The ideal microwave for baking is the one that comes with convection mode. If you are using a microwave with a convection mode, set the temperature to 180 degrees. Preheat the microwave oven.
Prepare the cake batter: In a bowl, add one cup flour, half a cup cocoa powder, 3 teaspoons baking powder, half a cup sugar. Mix all the dry ingredients well. Now, in a separate bowl, crack 2 to 3 large eggs. Eggs add moisture to the cake and make it fluffy. Add half a cup of milk to the eggs and whisk it well. Now add half a cup of oil, one teaspoon of vanilla essence, and two to three teaspoons of hot water. Now mix the dry ingredients and liquid mix slowly. Make sure to mix well to achieve a lump-free cake batter.
Get the cake pan ready: Grease a microwavable cake pan with flavorless oil using a brush. Place a sheet of baking paper on the bottom. Use generous amounts of oil to grease the pan as it will ensure that the cake can be taken out of the pan smoothly. Now, slowly pour the cake batter into the pan. Tap the pan so that the cake batter spreads evenly.
Place the cake pan in the microwave: Before placing the cake pan in the microwave oven, sprinkle some chocolate chips on the batter. Now, place the pan and let it cook for 10 minutes. Remove the cake and check if it is cooked properly by poking a toothpick in the center of the cake. If the toothpick end comes out clean the cake is baked. If not, bake the cake for 2 to 3 minutes more.
Once the cake cools down, pour chocolate ganache on it. To make the chocolate ganache, melt 2 to 3 bars of store-bought chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Pour the melted chocolate on the cake and decorate it with some rainbow sprinkles.
