All-in-one microwave cake

All in One Cake Mixture
One 18cm cake


Just like the name, all the ingredients are added at once. This is great if you need a cake in a hurry – if you don’t have time to let it cool sprinkle icing sugar on top and serve warm. If it is cool, split in half and fill with chocolate butter cream icing, then spread some more on top.

Cook’s Note

This cake can be made in a food processor. The sponge makes an excellent base for a chocolate trifle. The recipe was tested in a 900w microwave, adjust cooking times to suit wattage of microwave being used.
