2 minutes Microwave Coffee Cake!

I had no preplans to prepare a cake in the microwave..It was 12:30 at night and my hubby was busy with his office work..I did not feel sleepy too..I was just sitting idle not knowing what to do..Felt a bit hungry so decided to munch on something and found my pantry empty..Searching for some quick recipes I landed upon a recipe for microwave cake..I ws wondering how will that be done in 2 quick minutes..I decided to make my own version and decreasing the amount of ingredients..The cake was really moist and fluffy too..

                 

I made this in a small microwavable bowl..I used my cereals bowl..It can be tried in microwavable cups too..One cup for each person..I decided to make it a coffee cake since it would keep us fresh..
Here is my recipe for my quick,eggless,delicious microwave cake made from scratch..

                 

Ingredients

All-purpose flour/maida - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1/4 cup
Baking powder- 1 pinch
Coffee powder - 2 teaspoons (can be added more if u like more of coffee flavour)
Salt - 1 pinch
Milk - 5 tablespoons
Vanilla extract - 1/4 teaspoon
Oil - 1 teaspoon

Directions

Mix all dry ingredients.
Add milk, vanilla extract and oil and until well blended.
Spray a microwave-safe bowl/cup with cooking sprayand pour the batter into the cup.
Microwave at full power for 1 minute. Depending upon the strength of your microwave and shape of your cup or container, you may need to cook the cake longer in 15 second increments until done.
As long as you don't overcook it, it won't turn rubbery.
Also, the cake will puff up so don't fill a very small container. It needs some room to rise.

                 
                 

It's not a fancy cake but when you eat it warm with whipped cream, ice cream,a chocolate glaze,or any frosting of your choice it tastes pretty good.I used store bought frosting which tasted great and was over in minutes..

  38. Hi Divya,
    I tried this cake and its like a magic. Thank you so much for the recipe.
    (my daughter is feeling little better, but I could not resist to bake the cake!! )

    ReplyDelete
  39. Divya,
    That looks like an yummy cake. I tried once preparing cake in my MW almost with the same ingredients like yours, but it turned out to be quite spongy and that softness of oven baked cake was missing.
    Any suggestions for that.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I tried your cake today with my 7 year old and my daughter thought it was magic when the cake started rising after 30 secs. It was remarkably soft and moist for a cake made in MW in a min and no eggs or too much oil. This one is a keeper. Thank you!

  41. Hi,
    I tried this cake today, but instead of bpowder i added baking soda. The cake is not very soft as i expected. But the cake is good.Thanks for the recipe

    ReplyDelete
  42. I saw your cake on Apy's blog and really loved the idea of making an instant cake. Nice recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  43. hey i just tried it immediately after reading the recipe.. unfortunately didn't come out as well as i hoped.. it was a lot chewy, more like doughy.. can i add egg it in ??

    ReplyDelete
  44. Hi,
    I just made this cake and it turned out very well though it didn't rise well which I thought the problem might be with my baking soda. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. This is definitely a keeper when surprise guests visit us...

  45. WOW.. very first time here .. I hopped in from Madhuram's to check out your granola bar.. & when i saw this I cud not resist but try out immediately after dinner..Amazing it came out very well... except I made 1 big mistake.. forgot the sugar ..!! And I did some more tweeks..
    1/4 cup APF
    1/4 cup Whole Wheat Fl
    1 tsp cocoa pd
    1 tsp coffee pd
    Milk 5 tablespoons
    Vanilla extract 1/4 teaspoon
    Baking soda a pinch
    Apple cider vinegar 1 teaspoon
    Almond butter 1 teaspoon

    This rose very well & the texture was good too.. well tomorrow I plan to frost it with chocolate cream.. it will then compensate for the sugar
    Lovely quick cake..

  46. Hi!!
    Just made it and turned out gr8!! your measures are quite right. I decreased the quantity of sugar and it decreased the taste :). But from next time will follow ur instructions as they are mentioned. otherwise the cake in measure of softness was gud and as u mentioned it's nt a fancy cake indeed. tastes gud while warm. cold version, I felt, was a diaster. well tht's my opinion. thanks for sharing such a nice n quick recipe.

  47. is the batter supposed to be thick? i think your measurements are wrong?? how do i get the batter to be more fluid like yours looks?

    ReplyDelete
  48. hi, that was very nice.. oneday i was searching for recipes of cakes in microwave, and i found this. thanks for this.. but i've one question, whenever i bake in microwave it become hard, rather like elastic, instead of spongy.. could you give me any suggestion?

    ReplyDelete
  49. hi divya... today only i came across ur blog.. i am very sorry to say the 2 mints cake is a flop.. it has its raw maida taste after 2 mints of bake.. if u add more oil n milk n keep for 5 mints it is better..

    ReplyDelete
  50. hi divya..tried the recipe hoever the cake was not at all soft & spongy,it tasted half baked & raw...

  53. I made this coffee cake last night after I found it on chef in you. It was great. I didn't have any milk so I used coconut cream/coconut milk. I also added a dollop of Jam. Loved it!
