I don’t have a microwave at home and so i was postponing to make this cake.   As valentines day is nearing, it thought it is the right time to post this eggless chocolate mug cake in microwave.  I baked this cake in my friend’s place and it took exactly 2 minutes for me to bake this cake. If you are craving for an chocolate cake or kids are asking for a quick snack just make this cake in just 2 minutes.The cake turned out super soft and moist. The recipe i have adapted from Here.

Hi Jeyashree, simple and good one.... if I increase the qty (for eg double the given measurements), should i microwave it proportionately (4 min?)


jeyashri suresh February 14, 2014 - 4:04 am

thanks manjula, YOu cook for 3 minutes and insert a fork on the center. If it comes out clean then it is done. Do not over cook, it will become hard

Manjula Ramalingam February 17, 2014 - 9:08 am

Hi jeyashri, i tried this recipe. Tastednice but had to increase the qty of milk and sugar as it was not coming to a pouring consistency.

Apitha Iyer April 19, 2014 - 1:50 pm

Tried it today. It came out very well. Thanks Jeyashri for the easy recipe

Radhika Krishnamoorthy June 12, 2014 - 11:13 am

Tried it today n was a disaster. It became very hard. Where did I go wrong jeyashri. What should be the batter consistency

jeyashri suresh June 12, 2014 - 11:40 pm

the batter should be of idli batter consistency. Sometimes depends on the texture of the flour too. You can add 1 tblsp of milk extra, to reach the consistency

I don't have a microwave oven, can I conventional oven with this recipe as well?

Please let me know the coco powder you mentioned is sweetened or UN-sweetened?

jeyashri suresh November 8, 2014 - 9:03 am

It is unsweetened cocoa powder

Absolutely wondrous recipe, really felt like cake one afternoon so gave this a try. I was suprised how well it came out, seeing as I didn't use the correct ingredients (I used instant hot chocolate -you have to add extra for it to be chocolate-y, mine just had a sweet cocoa tinge- instead of cocoa, missed out the vanilla extract and didnt have any milk!)

My mum is a vegetarian and is vegan when she can be, so the eggless essence of this meant that we didn't have to waste money on eggs 🙂

One thing I will add is mine (with my adapted ingredients) came out a little tough at the bottom. I'm not sure what caused this (the lack of milk? Even though I add 4 tbs water to substitute? or instant hot chocolate?) but I would recommend leaving it in for 1 minute 30 sec and then judge how much longer it needs from there.

Other wise, thank you! It was absolutely delicious x

Sis,Can i replace cocoa powder wth milo..
plz reply

jeyashri suresh January 2, 2016 - 7:17 am

Sorry for the delayed reply. you can add but reduce the quantity of sugar as milo has sugar in it

Hi jeyashree....this recipe I tried today ...it was soft initially and later became little hard..can I know the reason pls....the taste was superb..thanks for sharing

jeyashri suresh July 27, 2016 - 1:24 pm

Thanks for trying out. Microwave cake tends to harden after few minutes. They have to eaten right from the oven
