5-minute Microwave Chocolate Cake
This chocolate cake is soft and moist, it is one of the fastest and easiest chocolate cakes to make. Topped with a creamy chocolate garnish this chocolate cake makes a delicious dessert.
- 1 ½ cups flour
- 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
- ⅓ cup oil
- 150 ml hot coffee
- ¾ cup sugar
- 1 egg
- ⅓ cup cocoa powder
- ¾ cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- ½ cup dark chocolate
- ⅓ cup cream
Line or grease a microwave cake pan. (I used a silicone cake pan and find that there is no need to grease or line it)
Add dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix.
Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk together until well combined.
Add to you baking pan and cook in a microwave for 5 min on high - 1200watts.
While the cake is cooking make the chocolate ganache for the cake.
Let the cake cool for 5-10 in pan before removing.
Once cake has cooled pour over chocolate ganache.
Heat cream on a low heat until hot - but do not let the cream boil.
Pour hot cream over the dark chocolate and let sit for 5 minutes to soften and melt the chocolate.
Stir together until ganache is smooth and creamy.
Let sit for 10 minutes to thicken up a little bit.
Pour over cake.
If you do not want to use coffee in, your cake you can just sub it for hot water.
I cook my cake on 1200 watts, but every microwave is a bit different. You may need to change you cooking time by 30 seconds depending on you microwave.
