Microwave Black Forest cake

Well most of my blogging friends know that this recipe is from Madhuri's Cook - Curry Nook.  I followed almost the same recipe except for few changes.. Here goes my recipe.

  1. All Purpose Flour - 3/4 cup
  2. Cocoa Powder - 1/4 cup
  3. Oil - 1/4 cup
  4. Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
  5. Baking Soda - 1/4 tsp
  6. Salt a pinch
  7. Honey - 1/4 cup
  8. Dates syrup - 1/4 cup ( I used Lion Dates syrup)
  9. Flax Seed Powder - 2 tsp (Mix it with 1/2 cup warm water & keep it aside)
  10. Warm water - little less than 1/4 cup
  11. Chopped walnuts - 2 tsp (optional)
Mix all the dry ingredients APF, Cocoa, Baking powder, Baking soda, salt together. Add flax seed powder mix, honey, dates syrup and mix it well. If necessary add little bit of water.  The original recipe is for cupcakes, Since i dont have microwaveable cups, I just used the pie tray and made cake. Pour the ingredients and microwave at high 900 W for 3 minutes. Cooking time differs from MW to MW. Original recipe finishes by one minute. But mine took 3 minutes to cook. Let it cool for few minutes & Enjoy!!

I replaced brown sugar with honey & dates syrup. So I had to use little bit of warm water than the original recipe.  Also i did not add vanilla essence. Adding chopped walnuts is not there in the original recipe.

Sending this to this month MW cooking Event hosted by Priya, an event by Srivalli.
