Mini Matcha Gateau au Chocolat in the Microwave

Mini Matcha Gateau au Chocolat in the Microwave

These are done after 2 minutes in the microwave!
It's a combination of matcha and white chocolate.

Ingredients: 30 bite-sized cakes, 3 cm in diameter

White chocolate
40 g
20 g
Pancake mix
30 g
5 g
1 tablespoon
Vegetable oil (to grease the mold)
as needed
To finish
as needed
Powdered sugar
as needed


1. Break or chop up the white chocolate into a microwave-safe container. Add butter and microwave for 1 minute at 600 W to melt.
2. Mix with a whisk.
3. Add the egg, pancake mix, sugar, and matcha. Mix well.
4. Grease a microwave-safe mini gateau mold (or small cupcake liners) with vegetable oil. Pour in the cake batter with a spoon.
5. The cake rises significantly when baking, so don't overfill with the batter.
6. Drop the mold onto a table a few times to remove any air pockets.
7. Microwave each mold in two batches. Keep your eyes on them, and microwave for 2 minutes at 600 W. Let it rest in the microwave for 2 minutes. Repeat twice for each batch.
8. The microwave will be warm when heating the mold a second time, so shorten the heating time slightly.
9. When it's slightly cooled, remove the cake from the mold and let it cool. Use a tea strainer to sprinkle matcha or powdered sugar on top.
10. It became moist the next day.
