Microwave Double Chocolate Cake Bowl
We love baking&hellipbut when it&rsquos 9 p.m. and a dessert craving strikes, we&rsquore not about to tear through our kitchen to make a chocolate cake. A microwave cake, on the other hand, we can get behind. This double chocolate cake bowl recipe, from Kelsey Preciado&rsquos Unbelievabowl Paleo, comes together in all of ten minutes&rsquo time. (Oh yeah, and it&rsquos Paleo.)
&ldquoNo need to wait for preheating or having your oven heat up your house,&rdquo she writes. &ldquoThis recipe uses cassava flour, which is made from a root and works well in Paleo baking.&rdquo
FYI, cassava flour is grain-free and has a slightly nutty flavor and a smooth texture (but it&rsquos nut-free), and it can be used as a one-to-one substitute for all-purpose flour. You can find it online or in the gluten-free baking aisle, but you could also use tapioca starch in a pinch (or AP flour if you&rsquore not Paleo).

¼ cup (57g) chocolate chips, plus more for garnish

Note: Coconut whipped cream can be found in most health food stores or Trader Joe&rsquos, or you can use any dairy or non-dairy whipped cream you like.

7 Minute Microwave Chocolate Cake Recipe Recipes 11 JAN 2010
An absolute disaster it was I tell you. I couldn’t find my gran’s 7 minute microwave chocolate cake recipe anywhere and not wanting to let Chantelle whom I had promised a cake for down, I did a quick look about on the Internet and turned up this pretty good alternative recipe for the one I used to make.
Naturally, in the interests of prosperity and information storage, I now share this new 7 minute microwave cake recipe with you my dear blog reader, just in case you were feeling just that little bit left out. :P
- 1 cup of sugar (or castor sugar)
- 1 cup of boiled water
- 1 cup of cake flour
- 45 ml of cocoa
- 45 ml of oil
- 12.5 ml of baking powder
- 5 ml of vanilla essence
- 2 eggs
- a pinch of salt
- Spray with non-stick or grease a microwave ring-cake pan.
- Beat the eggs together with the sugar and add the oil and vanilla essence into the mixture.
- Dissolve your cocoa in the boiled water.
- Mix together the cake flower, baking powder and salt.
- Add in the cocoa mixture and the egg mixture to the flour mixture, continuously beating the result until a smooth batter is obtained.
- Pour the smooth mixture into the ring pan and place in the microwave on high for between 6 and 7 minutes.
- If wet spots are detected after the mixture has finished cooking, you can microwave it for an additional minute or two. However, care needs to be taken to ensure that you don’t overcook the cake!
Once cooled. you can then move on to creating whatever icing you’re going to use for the job, though I usually like to stick with the plain old classic form of icing, namely taking 250 g of softened margarine and mixing it up with copious amounts of icing sugar with some vanilla essence and cocoa for flavour. But seriously, this last step is best left to your own machinations! :P
Double Chocolate Pudding Cake
This double chocolate pudding cake is called double chocolate because it is a chocolate cake with oozy chocolate pudding inside, much like the boxed mixes you can buy but. The difference is this one is much, much better.
Believe it or not, it is a microwave cake recipe. The recipe was originally shared with Cookingnook.com visitors by by Marcia S from Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
She says “This is one favorite which my husband loves as it is a quick and easy dessert.”
Marcia got the recipe from a newspaper recipe competition. “Years back the St. Catharines Standard held a yearly cooking contest of which all the best cooks in the Region submitted their favourite recipes. They chose the best to print a special cookbook supplement and awarded great prizes which my friend and I won for 3 years running.”
10 Minute Chocolate Cake Recipe
When it comes to chocolate cake, I do not mess around. If I’m going to indulge in that many calories, it better taste amazing! I have tried numerous recipes for chocolate cake and my all time favorite chocolate cake recipe, Chocolate Bliss, takes a few hours to make from start to finish. It is well-worth the effort, but sometimes I want instant gratification that isn’t so labor intensive. So in my search for a homemade, from scratch, 10 minute chocolate cake recipe I have finally nailed it! I tweaked some existing recipes until it passed my picky palette review. This cake is moist, rich, delicious, and can be whipped up at the very last minute. Speaking of minutes, in all honesty this cake might take more like 20 minutes if you are searching your pantry for the necessary ingredients, stopping to break up an argument between the kids, doing a little dance around the kitchen while you mix, you know…as one does. But I fully trust that if you were in a race and had to get this cake on the table in 10 minutes, it could be done.
The beauty of this recipe is that you bake it in the microwave which is why it only takes 10 minutes total to make. Now before you say “awwwww heck naw”, remember that I am a chocolate cake snob. This is not your typical “cake in a mug” recipe that produces a gross pseudo-cake product. I would NOT pass along a recipe that tasted gross, or had a weird texture, or was otherwise sub-par. Granted, microwave ovens vary significantly in their cooking times, so I advise taking a cautious approach to the recommended baking time. My microwave is 1000 watts and 6 minutes is a perfect amount of time for my cake. (You will typically find the watts of your microwave listed on a sticker inside the door frame.) The very bottom center of my cake looks slightly wet and under-baked in the video but as it cools it always sets and does not taste too moist. If you bake it until the bottom (not top) center appears completely firm, you risk the edges of the cake becoming hard as a rock.
My other secret ingredient is coffee! Substituting coffee for the liquid ingredients in chocolate baked goods has always served me well. The coffee accentuates the chocolate flavor but isn’t detected by non-coffee lovers. They too will enjoy the richness of the cake and won’t notice that it’s coffee.
Take a look at this 1 minute video to see me bake this cake like a boss!
Here is the full recipe for you! Let me know if you try it, or if you have any questions. Enjoy!
