Easy chocolate cake!

Of all the days I went through, only today that I had the time to explore the new Steam Grill Microwave Oven (Note: It's not a convection oven). It has so many functions that it took me the whole night to learn how to operate it *talk about exaggeration*

Just now, I decided to take a break from doing my assignment, run down the kitchen and meet the new Mr multi-function Microwave! We had some rough patches earlier last night but today he was being really really tolerable :)

And of course my first attempt would be chocolate cake! The good thing about baking a chocolate cake is that you can never go wrong with it! Trust me, if it's too dense you can just call it brownies and if it is too fluffy then you can just say you prefer your chocolate cake to be light or even it doesn't cook, you can still be proud of your very very moist and chocolatey chocolate cake :P

Enough with the endless exemption clauses I will now introduce to you my easy peasy chocolate cake recipe! It is soooo easy that you don't realise you're making yourself a cake! And you won't even feel guilty of sacrificing your assignment time to bake a cake! *Errr*

So, here's the recipe

Dry Ingredients:
1 1/2 c sugar
1 1/2 c flour
1 tsp soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 c cocoa powder

Wet ingredients:
1 1/2 c milk
1 c oil
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla *optional

Sift the dry ingredients except the sugar. Combine with wet ingredient and fold until well-mixed.

So here's the part where Mr Microwave comes in handy. Usually, I have to bring a pot of water to a boil just for the purpose of steaming the cake, but with Mr Microwave around, I can just pop the batter in the microwave, press micro steam function and set the time which is, please hold yourself tightly, I'm afraid you will fell off the's 15 mins! Yup no kidding! Is this the easiest chocolate cake on earth or what, right?

This is the only amount of water you need. Water saving it is!
Btw, this recipe will result in two delicious chocolate cake! *Unless you're using 20x20 baking pan*

So this is Mr Microwave I was telling you guys about! *Oh, please ignore the obnoxious figure, thank you*

And now, it's back to assignment..zzzzzzzzz..
