5 min Cake

~ The 5 min magic ~

Who doesn't love choco cakes ???
With a Happy New Year mail, Manvi -a follower from the blog
mailed me a lovely recipe titled - Easiest Ever Choco Cake .
This yummy chocolately five min recipe was perfect and
convincing enough to give an instant try . The cake turned out
wonderful . I hardly got any time for pic , while clicking
the very first shot I could hear my daughter's impatient voice
"Mom pleeeeeeese take the pics next time when u bake ,
I can't wait any longer " n off with this phrase was gone
the M and M on top ........ Thanks for sharing the recipe Manvi
- surely baking was never so easy !!

Cake in a Microwave !!!!!

Easiest Choco Cake ( Microwave )
Mixing is very imp in this cake so mix in well
after putting each ingredient.

Ing- 4 eggs, 1 3/4 cup powdered sugar , 1 cup flavorless
oil/ butter , 3/4 cup cocoa, 1 1/4 cup plain flour , 3/4 tsp baking
powder, pinch of baking soda, a few tbsp milk.

Method- In a big bowl beat 4 eggs till light n frothy, add
1 3/4 cup sugar n mix well. Put in 3/4 cup cocoa mix well ,
add 2tbspmilk ( may be a little more if required) to obtain a
lovely ribbony consistency. Finally add in 1 1/4 cup flour ,
baking powder n baking soda. Mix well, add in fruits/ nuts
of your choice n pour in a greased microwave safe container .
Cover with cling film (plastic wrap) n cook in micro mode
for 5 mins ( 900 W) . Take out from the microwave after
2 mins . Insert a toothpick to test if its done.

Make sure not to overbake or the cake will be dry. 
To give it a quick pretty look I kept a patterned trivet
on top of the cool cake n sifted some powdered sugar .
