  • I know from your comments that many of you don't have an oven, so today we're gonna make this amazing chocolate cake no oven required.

  • Also, I know many of you are just starting to bake during this lockdown, so this is the perfect cake for you.

  • It's a one-bowl recipe, and it only takes five minutes to make.

  • [Emma's Goodies]

  • Okay, so we're going to sift together the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder.

  • This recipe comes together so easily.

  • There's no creaming, and it's a one-bowl recipe.

  • I really wanted this to be a cake anyone can make, no matter how little experience you have when it comes to making a cake.

  • Everybody's on lockdown at the moment, and I feel everybody's becoming a baker these days.

  • And this is definitely a cake you need to make.

  • I've added the sugar, and you want to give these ingredients a good toss.

  • I post new videos every week!

  • Add the oil and the hot water.

  • The hot water will bloom the cocoa powder, intensifying it's delicious chocolate flavor.

  • You want to mix this well.

  • You may have to switch to whisk to dissolve the lumps, and you'll notice this batter is quite runny and loose.

  • It's perfect.

  • That's how we want it to be.

  • Now I'm going to show you a few options that will work as your cake tin.

  • Anything that you can pop in the microwave works.

  • You can use a microwave safe bowl, an oven dish, a deep dish as long as it can go in the microwave, you can use it as your mold.

  • I'm using this container.

  • I have lined the bottom with some parchment paper, and you want to make sure you grease and flour the sides as well.

  • Now let's talk about cooking time.

  • The cooking time will depend not only on your microwave, but also on the mold you decide to use.

  • It will depend on the size of your mold, and also what material your bowl or container is made out of.

  • Now I feel this needs to be said, because a lot of people worry about opening the door before the cake is finished cooking.

  • As you can see, nothing happens to the cake.

  • Mine was still jiggly and raw in the middle, so I just popped it back in.

  • I cooked mine in total for five minutes, using a nine-inch mold.

  • Like I said, keep an eye on it, if after three minutes it's not done just leave it longer.

  • You'll know it's ready when the top will be springy, and if you insert a toothpick in the center of the cake, it will come out clean.

  • Allow the cake to cool in the mold for about five minutes, and use a spatula to release the sides of the cake from the pan.

  • And you're going to turn it over onto a rack or cutting board.

  • How good does that look!

  • You would think that was made with a traditional cake pan.

  • Now the bottom will be kind of wonky looking, but that's okay, because we're going to flip it over again once it has cooled.

  • That way we have a nice flat, even top and it's easier, you know, to frost.

  • Now you can use whatever frosting you want.

  • I will leave in the description box below my favorite chocolate frosting.

  • It's easy, it's fast and it's delicious.

  • I'm however using my leftover Nutella that I have for my previous video.

  • I love it!

  • In Italy, we absolutely love our Nutella.

  • We're going to immediately cut into this cake.

  • I have to show you how incredibly moist and soft this cake is.

  • The crumb on this cake is absolutely melt in your mouth.

  • You will be amazed how good of a result you can get by baking a cake, well not baking, by making a cake in the microwave.

  • We made a cake in five minutes.

  • No oven required and no fuss.

  • And it's delicious, and moist and chocolaty.

  • If you are a beginner, lockdown baker, you have to make this cake!

I know from your comments that many of you don't have an oven, so today we're gonna make this amazing chocolate cake no oven required.
