15 Minutes Microwave Chocolate Cake 2

Categories: [ Cooking ]

Adapted from the 15 Minutes Microwave Chocolate Cake

Ingredients

  • 100g dark chocolate
  • 3 tbl. spoons water
  • 80g butter
  • 1 tbl. spoon hazelnut paste (100% hazelnuts, not the bread-spread kind)
  • 120g powdered sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 100g flour
  • 1 tea spoon baking powder

Tools

  • salad bowl that goes to the microwave
  • (wooden) spoon

Preparation

Put the chocolate broken in pieces in a salad bowl that goes to the microwave with the water and the butter cut in cubes. Heat for 1 min in the microwave. Stir well until all the butter has melted. Add the hazelnut paste and stir again. Add the sugar, stir. Add the eggs one by one, and stir well after each egg. Add the flour in a small heap on the top of the preparation, add the baking powder on top of it and stir the preparation in small circles next to the heap of flour. The flour will be incoroporated bit by bit without making lumps. When most of the flour is incorporated, stir by making large circles again.

Put the salad bowl with the preparation in the microwave and cook at maximum power for 6 min at 900 W (or 8 min at 700 W). The cake is ready when a knife's blade stuck into the cake comes out clean. Leave the cake to cool down. You can alternatively turn the salad bowl upside-down on a plate to unmould it while it's still hot; the cake won't come off easily, but the taste remains the same :)

Comments

  • The cake is quite light and not rubbery at all compared to the previous one
  • It's slightly dry, a bit more butter could help, or then a shorter cooking time
