DESSERTS & CAKES

Egg less Microwave Coffee Cake

Ingredients :


1 ½ tbsp instant coffee powder (Nescafe classic)
¼ cup boiling water
1 cup all purpose flour (maida)
½ tsp baking soda
1 pinch salt
1 cup sugar
½ cup oil (OR ½ cup melted butter)
2 tbsp honey
1 ½ tsp vanilla essence
1 cup milk (room temperature)
Method: 
Dissolve coffee powder in boiling water and keep aside.
In a bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt.
In a separate large bowl, mix sugar and oil. Add the coffee solution, honey and vanilla and mix well. Add flour mixture little by little and mix well. Pour milk a little at a time into this and mix thoroughly making sure no lumps are formed. (If you are using melted butter instead of oil you will have to mix harder. You can use a handheld electric mixer if you can't get rid of the lumps).
Grease a large microwave safe bowl liberally (or line with parchment paper) and pour the batter in it, such that it fills 2/3rd of the dish or less. Microwave uncovered for 8 to 9 minutes. (The cake will not be completely baked but will have moist spots all over).
Switch the microwave off and leave the cake untouched for 10 to 15 minutes. If you want to invert the cake, let the cake cool for another 30 mins.

Note: 

1. Cooking time may vary depending on the microwave.
2. There will be moist spots especially in the center, which will be taken care of during the standing time. If you wait till the cake becomes completely dry before turning the microwave off, then the cake may become rubbery. This is because the cake continues to cook even after you turn the microwave off, by the heat generated within it.
3. If you store the cake for a few days, it may turn dry and hard. If that happens, just microwave the slice of cake for a few seconds and consume immediately.
4. If you are using melted butter instead of oil, the cake may need an additional minute of baking.
Sprinkle powdered sugar on top or enjoy with a dollop of vanilla ice-cream
