Quick Egg-less Microwave Chocolate Cake

Just googled an easy chocolate cake recipe since my toddler loves it and found a nice microwave chocolate cake recipe. Thanks to Madhura’s recipe. I made a little changes according to our family taste buds to the original recipe. With some preparation ahead of time you will be able to impress your guests for sure. My hubby loved it and my toddler hogged onto it LOL. So here we go!!!


All purpose flour: 1 ½ Cups
Sugar: 1 ¼ Cup (adjust according to your family’s taste buds)
Whole Milk: 1 Cup (room temperature)
Cocoa powder: 3 Tbsp.
Baking Powder: ¼ Tsp.
Baking Soda: ½ Tsp.
Vanilla Extract: ½ Tsp.
Vegetable Oil: 3 Tbsp. (Optional)
Lemon Juice: 1 Tbsp.


1.    Take sugar in a mixing bowl and add room temp milk to it. Stir it till the sugar is dissolved completely. Please adjust sugar according to your taste. I added little less sugar since my family doesn’t like it too sweet.
2.    Once the sugar dissolved completely, start sieving the dry ingredients in the mixing bowl. Start with all purpose flour. Add cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda respectively. Sieve it nicely by breaking the lumps of cocoa powder and baking soda with the help of a spoon.

3.    Whisk all the ingredients together. There should be no lumps in the cake batter.
4.    Add vanilla extract and oil to the batter. Oil is totally optional however it surely gives a nice glaze and taste to the cake. It helps keep the cake moist. Whisk everything together.

5.    Now add the lemon juice and keep whisking until it’s well incorporated in the cake batter. This will help to rise the cake since we are not adding egg in the batter. Also it will help to make this cake really spongy.

6.    Grease the pan with cooking spray or oil nicely. You may use butter paper in the bottom. I usually use butter flavored cooking spray for all my baking.
7.    Pour the batter in the microwave safe bowl. Tap the bowl lightly on the counter top to take the air bubbles away from the cake batter.

8.    Put this bowl on a microwave safe plate or dish so by any chance the cake oozes out it will be in the dish and will not be a mess in your microwave.
9.    Keep it in the microwave over high power for 5min.
10.  Take the cake out with the help of oven mittens and check with the help of a toothpick insert. Always insert the toothpick in the center or middle of the cake, if it comes out clear that means the cake is ready. If it doesn’t, keep it back in the microwave for another minute. Check it again. At this time it should be done. Every microwave is different so please check after 5min. however do not go over 6 ½ min all together. If you over bake it, the cake will not be moist from inside.
11.   Give a 5 min standing time.
12.  With the help of a knife try to separate it from the edges, take a cooling rack and take the cake out (upside down). Let it cool down on a cooling rack. Taddaaa your quick microwave chocolate cake is ready.

If you like it give a thumps up and please share it with others. Don’t forget to enjoy this yummy and popular cake. Happy Cooking!!!!
