Eggless Chocolate cake by my Bro

On my parents' wedding anniversary,my two elder brothers surprised my amma with a Microwave oven.I felt very happy hearing that!!Ever since,my brother(yeah!)has been asking me for an eggless cake recipe so that he can make it on his own.I suggested my own version of Eggless chocolate cake which I got from Shilpa's blog.But maybe,he wanted to try another one,so he just asked me about the power and time settings.I was also anxious to see how this new recipe came about.He surprised everyone and made a wonderful cake..though the recipe is from a Cookbook(he's not gonna be very happy reading this,hehe).

Jokes apart,he made not one but 4 cakes..yeah you read that right,pretty cool for a newcomer in kitchen,right?He called me up and said the cake dish was medium sized,so I suggested he bake it in two pans.It seems,the cake in the smaller pan got over the moment it got inverted into a plate.The second one,in a big pan was kept aside for fudge topping.He was so surprised and impressed with his own efforts that he decided to bake two more.Here comes the funny part,the third one also came out well.But the fourth and the last one was neglected too much and it got burned.I couldn't control my laughter when I heard this..;-)Anyway,cheers to my bro Somannu,who incidentally celebrates his birthday today.

Happy Birthday to you my dearest Somannu..Love ya!!!

  12. hello divya....can u pls tell me what u mean by 60% power????how much will it be in degrees ???pls reply fast as i plan to make this cake soon....thanks for all ur wonderful recipes divya....

    1. Hello Sujatha,this cake is made in mw mode,hence the power mode.Power denotes the heat/temperature required to mw.Usually it is in %,hence I've given the power %.If your mw has a power button,keep pressing it till it reaches the desired percentage.Some mw will only have low,medium and high percentage,in that case use the medium power level.Hope this helps!
