I love baking but baking cakes is not something I commonly do.

  1. Who’s going to eat it all?
  2. Chances are, I will be the one to eat majority of it…
  3. And that’s not good

So unless, it’s a special occasion or I really feel like cake, and make plans to bake a cake, it’s often forgotten in the back of my mind, until I see all your delectable feed and start craving some sugary goodies.

On those nights, I don’t have my trusty brownies on hand, I whip up the easiest & quickest, my 40 sec chocolate cake to satisfy my fudgey chocolate cake fix. And boy does this cake work a treat, especially with ice cream, toasted hazel nuts and chocolate topping 中中中.

Best thing, did I mention it only takes 40 sec to cook in the microwave!

How quick is that, that’s faster than walking to the pantry for a bar of chocolate!!!

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp instant coffee
  • 3 tbsp hot water
  • 100 mil soy milk
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinagar
  • 70 grams plain flour sifted
  • 40 grams cocoa powder sifted
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda sifted
  • 135 grams brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt flakes
  • 1 tbsp ground flax seed
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup grape seed oil
  • 50 grams dark chocolate roughly chopped

Instructions

  1. Prepare your coffee mixture, by mixing 1 tsp of instant coffee with 3 tbsp of hot water in a small bowl and set aside.

  2. Then, prepare your buttermilk by mixing 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar to 100 mil of soy milk in a  bowl and set aside for 5 min.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, mix the sifted plain flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, brown sugar and sea salt together. 

  4. Then add the flax seed, water, vanilla extract, grape seed oil, soy milk mixture and coffee mixture, and mix everything together.

  5. Finally add the dark chocolate and mix till incorporated.

  6. Now at this stage, I chose to spoon the cake mixture into 6 individual ramekins or coffee cups and cook them in the microwave for 40 sec per ramekin.

  7. You can pour the mixture into a microwave safe bowl or dish and cook in the microwave for roughly 1-2 min to make a individual cake and cut them into smaller pieces if you wish.

  8. Either way, both can be covered and put in the freezer uncooked for up to 3 months.

  9. Allow cake to cool slightly before consuming.

    You can also dust a bit of cocoa powder on top for extra chocolatey flavour

You can pour the mixture into a microwave safe bowl or dish and cook in the microwave for roughly 1-2 min to make a individual cake and cut them into smaller pieces if you wish.

Either way, both can be covered and put in the freezer uncooked for up to 3 months.

Note: Cooking time says 1 minute, but that’s due to there isn’t a sec function in the cooking time tab. Cooking time for the individual small serving only requires 40 sec, so don’t be fooled.

Cooking time may varies from microwave to microwave. Mine is a 1200Watt Inverter microwave.

If you are cooking the whole lot in one go, I suggest cooking it a min at a time until you work out best timing for your microwave.

Caution, content will be hot inside, so let it cool slightly before digging in .
