8 Minute Moist Microwave Cake Recipe : Lemonade Cake

Quick Moist Chocolate Cake Microwave Recipe

I have been meaning to share this recipe for the popular 8 Minute Chocolate Cake that I have seen demonstrated at Tupperware parties.
What? 8 minutes?  Yep you guessed it! 

It's quick and easy and very adaptable.  For the wow factor,  demonstrators often use Lemonade or for chocolate cake mixes Cola goes well. I personally prefer plain soda water. I don't really know what the origins of the recipe are, I don't even know if Tupperware invented it - but what I do know is that is fantastic in an emergency when unexpected guests arrive or when you don't want to heat the conventional oven up.

The cake itself is moist,  almost a pudding if you eat it warm or a soft moist  crumb when cold. It is even yummier with an easy ganache poured over as pictured, why not try my Raspberry Liqueur Ganache recipe., add some berries and YUM!



Ingredients:
1 Packet of any brand Chocolate Cake mix (discard instructions)
1 Packet of Chocolate Instant Pudding Mix
1/3 cup of Oil
2 Eggs
1 Cup of soft drink (Cola/lemonade /soda)

Equipment

TupperChef Kugelhoph  (a microwave safe cake pan made from silicone with a hole in the middle)
Spatula for mixing.
Mixing bowl

Instructions:

Place all ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix well using the spatula.

Pre-heat Kugelhopf for 2 minute in Microwave on high (this makes it non stick) then immediately pour cake mixture evenly into  Kugelhopf.

Microwave on High for 8 -10 minutes (depending on your oven wattage 1000 -800w)

Remove from microwave and stand for  at least 5 mins before turning out onto a plate. (I prefer to leave longer than that)

Decorate with Chocolate Ganache and Fresh Strawberries.
