This chocolate cake is deliciously fluffy just out of the oven and moist when cool. All you have to do is mix the ingredients together and bake it in the microwave, so this cake won't even take you 15 minutes It's just that simple.
Place the pancake mix, cocoa, and sugar into a bowl and mix them together with a whisk until the color of the mixture is even. There's no need to sift the ingredients.
Next, pour in the milk and vegetable oil and mix everything together. Lastly, break the eggs into the mixture and combine until evenly mixed.
Lightly grease a cake tin with vegetable oil (not listed) and pour in the batter from Step 2.
Bake the cake in the microwave (600 W) for 10 minutes.
Story Behind this Recipe
When I was in the middle of exams so had no spare time. Even so, I really wanted to make a cake so I tried to think of something quick that I could just mix together and put in the microwave. It came out unexpectedly delicious! I measured the ingredients with spoons for even less washing up too.
You can use a heat resistant bowl instead of a cake tin, just be careful about the size, as the cake will expand in the oven. I've heard that this cake can come out a bit hard. I think it's probably down to the type of microwave and the size of the tin that's being used so try microwaving the cake for a shorter amount of time (maybe 6 minutes, then take it out to see how far along it is). If you can pierce the cake with a skewer and it comes out clean, the cake is cooked.
