Chocolate Cake Without Cocoa Powder
This is a super easy and delicious chocolate cake recipe. This chocolate cake can be made without cocoa powder or biscuit and it is eggless without an oven. If you are looking for an easy cake recipe without oven this chocolate cake in microwave is here to rescue.
We made this chocolate cake with drinking chocolate which is easily available in every household. Rather than using the biscuit, using drinking chocolate as a substitute of cocoa powder gives it real chocolate flavour, so the cake comes out so decadent. If you do not do baking so often or not confident enough to use the oven this quick and easy microwave cake is designed for you.
The ingredients are easily available at home and the recipe is so simple to put together and it only takes 5 minutes in microwave rather than baking it for an hour or so.
