This has to be hands down the quickest cake to bake, it takes just 6 minutes – don’t think you can beat that. It is not quite as light as most cakes; it is however spongy and very moist and is ideal for last minute guests popping in for a tea time treat.
Microwave Oven Chocolate Cake
250ml cake flour
12.5ml baking powder
Pinch of salt
