Sometimes it becomes very necessary to find out a way to deal with a child who has a sudden ‘cake craving’. With my OTG sent out for servicing, I was not sure how to make a quick cake.

Then,I asked Srivalli if a MW cake would qualify for the Bake-a-thon and she gave me a thumbs up!Since I was at mom’s place for the week end, I thought it will be fun to try out a cake in the Microwave and that’s exactly what I did. I baked a MW eggless fruit cake and this Coffee cake.

I looked up a couple of recipes on the net and concocted my own single serve cake. Will you believe if I told you that the total time to make this cake is as low as 2 minutes and the cake get gets done on 30 seconds!!!

I used:

Dry ingredients

All purpose flour- 2 tablespoons
Powdered sugar- 1 tablespoon
Cocoa Powder- 1/2 teaspoon
Instant coffee powder- 1/4 teaspoon
Baking powder-1/4 teaspoon
Salt- a pinch

Wet ingredients

Milk-2 tablespoons
Oil- 3/4 teaspoon

Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. Then add the wet ingredients and mix well so that there are no lumps. Divide the batter between two small cups or one large MW safe mug. Microwave @ 60 % power for 30 seconds or till the cake is done….

Serve immediately with a chocolate sauce / as such…


  • I baked this cake in a 100 ml paper tea cup. You can use any microwave safe container.
  • My microwave is 1200 watts and I bakes at 60 % power in the microwave mode. 
  • The oven timings will vary so bake in an instalment of 25 seconds 
  • Do not over bake the cake as it will get tough on the outside.

Here are the other bakes that are a part of this Bake- A – Thon group….


This super easy goes to Nayna’s Let’s Cook Christmas Party Foods event.

Bon Appetit…
