Eggless Microwave Chocolate Carrot Cake

One minute microwave chocolate mug cakes are very famous at my home. Most of the time, I prepare them while watching movies during Sunday evenings.

One day, I wanted to eat something with chocolate and immediately thought of preparing the chocolate mug cake. Rushed into the kitchen, opened the pantry to see the available ingredients. I saw half a can of condensed milk left in my pantry after preparing the coconut ladoos. At the same time, I noticed my mom was grating carrot for preparing lunch. Remembered a bookmarked recipe from Tarla dalal's site and prepared this Egg less Microwave Chocolate Carrot Cake. It came out super moist and soft. I added more walnuts to get extra crunchiness while enjoying the chocolate.
Basic Information:
Preparation Time: 3 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 minute + 5 minutes cooling time
Serves: 5 persons


Butter - 1/2 cup, melted
Condensed milk - 1/2 cup
Honey - 2 teaspoons
Castor Sugar - 2 tablespoons
Vanilla essence - 1 teaspoon
Baking Soda - 1/4 teaspoon
Baking Powder - 1/4 teaspoon
All purpose flour / Plain Flour / Maida - 3/4 cup
Cocoa powder - 2 tablespoons
Grated Carrot - 3/4 cup
Walnuts - 2 tablespoons, roughly chopped

1) Grease the microwave safe bowl with butter and dust it with flour. Keep aside.
2) Take a mixing bowl, mix all the wet ingredients one by one.
3) Then, slowly add the dry ingredients and make a batter.
4) Finally add the grated carrot and walnuts. Mix again. Transfer this batter to the prepared microwave safe bowl. You can either use paper cups to prepare muffins.
5) Microwave it in HIGH mode for 1 minute. Allow it to stand for 5 minutes.
6) Cut into slices and enjoy.
1) If you notice the cake hasn't cooked well, you can cook it again for few more minutes. This step might vary depending on the type of the microwave used.
2) It is important to allow the cake to cool for at least 5 minutes as the heat retained within the cake will gradually continue to cook the cake.

is one minute in high mode enough for cooking this cake??????how will we know the cake is cooked???

@unknown, yes. I kept it in High mode for a minute and then 5 minutes to cool. Just insert a bamboo skewer/ tooth pin into the cake after that. It comes out clean if it is cooked. otherwise, keep the cake again for 1 minute but keep on monitor not to burn it.

thnks will try this this weekend and will let u know the outcome:)

Sure. You definitely Like it.

the cake was moist and very tasty too.i had to cook the cake for 3 mins though .(may be cos of the type of bowl used).thnks again for the recipe:)

Hey Uma.. I tried this cake yesterday and it came out really well.. I had to add a little bit of milk to it as the cake mixture was too thick after adding all the ingredients.. Also I had to microwave it for 4-5 mins... Thanks :)

Thanks a lot for trying it out Shwetha. As you said, the time might vary from oven to oven. :-)

Hey Uma. The cake looks really yummy. Can we use anything else in the place of condensed milk (no eggs either). Thanks.

Thanks soo much !! I dont have an oven and wanted to bake the cake for my husband's birthday myself....I did and it turned out superb !! Thanks so much !!

I too had to do it in the microwave for 5-6 minutes but the end result was perfect

Hi Uma, Shouldn't we preheat the microwave oven? I am new to baking, I heard that we need to preheat it in convection mode. Please confirm.. Thanks
