Eggless chocolate cake in microwave.

I promised my daughter a chocolate cake for Valentine day .I baked this on the eve of Valentine's day.The recipe is  from  http://www.egglesscooking.com/2009/03/23/eggless-chocolate-cake-yogurt/

I have made some changes to the recipe & here it follows.....

Ingredients : 1 cup whole wheat flour,1/2 tsp baking powder,1 tsp baking soda,4-5 heaped tsp s Bournvita powder( in place of cocoa powder ),1/2 cup sugar,2tbsp oil,1/4 cup coffee ( mixed 1 tsp Bru coffee powder in 1/4 cup warm water ),1/2 cup buttermilk,1 tsp vanilla essence.

Method :Line the microwaveable vessel with butter paper.I arranged some Cadbury gems in a circle on the butter paper.

Mix  all the dry ingredients : whole wheat flour,baking soda ,baking powder,sugar,Bournvita powder nicely. in a bowl.Keep aside.

Then mix all the wet ingredients : buttermilk,oil,vanilla essence& coffee in another bowl.Now make a well in the dry mix bowl.Slowly pour the wet mix into the well.Mix so that no lumps remain.Pour this mix into the microwaveable vessel .Microwave for 7-8 minutes.Let it stand for 10 minutes in the microwave.Then take out the cake.If a tooth pik inserted in the cake ,comes out clean,cake is done.Otherwise bake it for 1-2 minutes.

Remove the vessel out of the microwave to cool it. after 20-30 minutes,turn the vessel upside down on to plate.Cut the cake into desirable shapes & serve.

Gems should not have been used at the bottom as they turned brown .Next time around ,I am going to press the gems on the cake as soon as it is removed from the microwave.

Buttermilk quantity may have to be adjusted -less or more than 1/2 cup can be used.For baking in microwave,consistency has to be slightly more watery than drop down consistency.

My kid took the cake to school & all her friends relished it !
