Christmas is around the corner, and we have gathered some delectable cake recipes that you can easily make with microwave ovens. Thus, gather the ingredients and get ready to create an array of scrumptious cakes to entice your family, friends, and guests.

Chocolate Cake

Sunflower Oil    100 ml
Caster Sugar    175 gm
Flour    140 gm
Cocoa Powder    3 tbsp


Baking Powder    3 tsp
Large Eggs     2
Vanilla Essence    1 tsp
Water    100 ml
Chocolate sprinkles

Ingredients for Chocolate Ganache
Dark Chocolate (broken into pieces) 100 gm
Heavy Cream/Whipping Cream  5 tbsp

Method for Chocolate Ganache
Melt the chocolate on low power for approximately 2 minutes, stirring every 20 seconds until melted. Add the cream and mix them thoroughly until smooth and glossy.

1. Grease an 8.6-inch microwaveable cake pan with a little oil and place a baking parchment in the bottom. Mix the sugar, flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder in a bowl. In another bowl, whisk the oil, eggs, vanilla, and 100 ml hot water until combined.
2. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix it thoroughly until you have a lump-free batter. Pour the mixture into the cake pan and gently tap to pop any air bubbles. Cover with cling film.
3. Microwave on full (high) power for 7 minutes. Remove and check if the cake is cooked by poking a skewer into the middle - if it comes out clean, the cake is ready. Allow the cake to stand for 5 minutes, remove the cling film and turn out onto a cooling rack.
4. Once the cake is cool, spread over the ganache and scatter with the sprinkles. The cake will keep for up to 3 days in an airtight container.
