One of my dearest friend visited me late in the night just to satisfy her sweet tooth. She is a biggest chocolate lover and can eat chocolate all day long. Whenever she visits a restaurant, she orders a biggest chocolate piece and satisfies her chocolate cravings. 😉

This cake got rave reviews from her and she demanded for a recipe. So here is an easy to follow step by step recipe to a super moist and a wonderfully dense chocolate cake. 

Now on to the recipe!

This cake is prepared using self rising flour, no self rising flour on hand, try making at home.  Combine everything in a bowl. Fill the bowl half way with the batter, keep room for it to rise. Also tap the bowl on the counter before baking, as doing so will release the air trapped inside. 

This cake cooks in a very different way. First the sides will rise making a crater/well in the center and then the center will rise. Please do not open the microwave during baking process. Cake will finish up beautifully – be very careful to not overcook this cake!

Allow the cake to rest in the bowl for at least 10 minutes before inverting onto a plate. To speed up the process place a wet towel underneath the warm bowl and once the bowl is comfortable to touch flip it over.

Enjoy the cake as is or proceed to prepare the glaze. The possibilities are endless with glaze and garnishes! This cake has the right amount of sweetness – it’s not too sweet, even with the white chocolate glaze. It tastes incredibly better the next day and after (only if it stays that long 😉 ).

Be sure to give this delicious and oh-so-moist 7 minute eggless chocolate cake a try. Cut a wedge sit back and enjoy – what a better way to indulge yourself !! 7 minute Eggless Chocolate Cake picture

Amazingly delicious moist Chocolate cake prepared with 7 ingredients and cooked for 7 minutes in microwave and to top that it's EGGLESS.
Servings Prep Time
Cook Time
Servings Prep Time
Cook Time
  • 1-1/2 cup Self rising flour
  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2+1/4 teaspoon Baking powder
  • A pinch of Salt
  • 1 cup Oil
  • 1-1/2 cup Milk
  • 1 cup Sugar + 1 tablespoon Brown sugar
  • 1 cup White Chocolate
  • 1/3 cup Heavy cream
  1. Assemble all the dry ingredients.
  2. In a large bowl combine all the dry ingredients one by one.
  3. Sift through a strainer.
  4. If any lumps are left behind, rub them using a spatula.
  5. Set it aside.
  1. Onto our wet ingredients.
  2. Measurements should be exact. 1-1/2 cup of milk and
  3. 1 cup of oil.
  4. In the same bowl (dry ingredients) add sugar...
  5. Pour in milk..
  6. And Oil.
  7. Whisk for 2 minutes till everything is well blended.
  8. The batter should be of a thick dropping consistency.
  9. Grease a round microwavable bowl. Mine is a 7 cup round Pyrex bowl.
  10. Pour the batter in this bowl.
  11. Make sure the batter is half filled as there should be room left for the cake to rise. Pick up the bowl and gently tap it on the counter to release all the trapped bubbles.
  12. Time to cook the cake. Place your bowl in the center of the microwave.
  13. Set the timer to 7 minutes on HIGH (100%) power. Energy outputs per microwave oven vary wildly. So set for 6 minutes first
  14. This cake will be cooked in a very different way. First the sides will rise forming a crater/well in the center and then the center will rise. Please do not open the door during cooking process. The cake will be cooked beautifully but as the timer is up it will settle down a little bit. No worries its all good. 🙂
  15. Since the bowl is deep I have inserted a skewer in the cake to check for doneness.
  16. It came out all clean.
  17. Cooked cake will look like this- all airy. Allow it to sit till the bowl is comfortable to touch.
  18. Place a plate underneath the cake bowl..
  19. And flip it over.
  20. Enjoy the cake as is..
  21. Or finish it off with a dusting of powdered sugar.
  22. Garnish with strawberries or raspberries.
  23. A perfect cake with or without the glaze.
  24. This is the baked version of this cake in an conventional oven.
  1. Ready to prepare the glaze. Assemble the ingredients.
  2. Add both the ingredients to a microwavable measuring jar.
  3. Cook it in a microwave for 1:45 minutes till it is all thick and gooey stirring after every 30 seconds.
  4. The glaze will be of a thick dropping consistency.
  5. Generously drizzle the glaze all over the cake. Some of it may run down. Keep a cake knife on hand and keep spreading while you drizzle so that everything remains on top.
  6. The possibilities are endless with glaze and garnishes!
  7. A wonderful, easy and an impressive cake!
  8. What a better way to indulge yourself , cut a wedge, sit back and enjoy!!

  2. Gauri says:

    Hey Ruchi
    Looks like an amazing one. Planning to prep this for my hubby’s birthday
    I do not have a glass bowl as shown
    I have round baking tin.
    Can i use that for the 7 minutes cake?
    Or il have to use it on convection mode only?


    • Ruchi says:

      Thanks, Gauri.
      Please refer your microwave manual for all kinds of utensils that can be used in your model.

      • Gauri says:

        Hello ruchi thanks for replying
        I actually know what all can be used i wanted to know what cam be used for this 7 min cake
        Microwave safe ceramic will work? The ine that we get in dinner sets?

        • Ruchi says:

          If the dish is marked as “microwave-safe” then yes you can use that in your microwave.
          It’s usually listed at the bottom of the pan. 🙂

          • Gauri says:

            Ok thanks! Hope the baking time remains same will go with 6 mins first

          • Ruchi says:

            Yes, baking time/temp. remains the same.

          • Gauri says:

            Thanks for trying and sharing your experience with me. 🙂

  3. GB says:

    Hiii Ruchi!!
    Sooo excited to share this with you!
    I had very fond memories of baking multitudes of cakes with various ingredients and flavours 10 years ago when my family had a house with a modular kitchen paid for by the employer. Relived all those memories again today!! Had never baked in a microwave before.
    I didnt have cocoa so added some coffee powder and cashews instead to add flavour. Turned out to be great.
    Soft, spongy, moist with somewhat crisp layer on the top, exactly how we like it!
    Now, am going to get back to experimenting with different flavours like earlier (Choco banana, dry fruits, vanilla, etc).
    Thanks a ton for this joy!

    • Ruchi says:

      Thanks, GB for your kind words. It really means a lot.
      Glad to hear that you liked the recipe.
      The flavor combinations you mentioned surely sounds yum.
      Keep experimenting and happy baking. 😍😍

  4. Kashish says:

  5. Yamuna says:

    This is my first baking and it came out really great…texture is so so soft….I love it so much😍😍 and I am gonna finish it off right away…I can’t believe I made it…oh my god…I can also bake😊…thank you so much….

    • Ruchi says:

      Thank you for a wonderful feedback, Yamuna. It’s always a pleasure to hear back from lovely people like you. Glad to hear that you liked the recipe.
      Keep baking and god bless. 🙂

  6. Pritam Nanda says:

    I don’t have glass microwave dish.
    What to do?
    Can I use aluminum one?

    • Ruchi says:

      From what I know, aluminum should not be used in a microwave. It may cause sparks.
      Please read your appliance manual before baking in an aluminum dish.
      Do you have a microwavable pan that came along with your microwave? Please bake in that.

  10. shivani says:

    pl share one more quick vegan recipe for plain vanilla cake in microwave like this

  11. shivani says:

    one of the best cakes ever made at home! tastiest, easiest and softest one..yummy. the only issue i had was after keeping the cake to cool down before taking out of container…it did break from base and some of it still remained stuck to base of container despite i oiled the container well with oil. what can be done to avoid this sticking and cake comes out more smoothly. but yes thanks a lot for this beautiful cake recipe. all loved it!

    • Ruchi says:

      Thanks for your wonderful feedback Shivani.
      Glad you liked the cake. 🙂
      Try this trick next time. Take a butter knife or flat spatula and run it around the edges of the cake to loosen it from the sides of the bowl. Be very gentle. Once all the edges are loose, flip the bowl over and tap at the bottom of the bowl to unmold the entire cake out. This should work. Do not force the cake to unmold, as this will result in a mess.
      If the cake is still stuck, repeat the entire process again (run the knife and so on….).
      Hope this helps!

  15. Rama says:

    Looks yummy. Can we use butter paper at the bottom of the bowl ?

  16. Lalitha says:

    Hey ruchi .iam a begineer in baking.I tried this cake every thing was good but the cake had very bitter taste .I used olive oil instead of normal oil ,do u think it’s the reason.and normal otg instead of microwave.very skittish to it again any suggestions to avoid this .thanks Lalitha

    • Ruchi says:

      Lalitha thanks for trying the recipe. Didn’t get the last part of your query. What do you mean by skittish and normal otg instead of microwave? Please clarify so that I can guide you correctly.
      The possible cause for a bitter taste is olive oil. Olive oil is a lot more bitter than other oils. Which oil did you use – regular olive oil or extra virgin olive oil?

  17. Pinkz says:

    Wow, stunning cake. Made it today twice and was vanished in minutes. Thanx for sharing your recipes with us.

    Yummy cake thanks for the wonderful recipe!!!

  20. Nilufar Daruwalla says:

    Hey Ruchi, till now I was just making the awesome cake which my family loves very much without the glaze. Today I tried with the glaze as it is my daughters birthday. I had kept in the microwave for 1.45 mins as mentioned in your recipe but in the last few minutes the glaze started boiling and it became thick and creamish in colour and little oil had separated. Would like to know if something went wrong. I was expecting white colour and drooping.

    • Ruchi says:

      Thanks for your feedback Nilufar. Depending on the power and efficiency of a microwave, cooking times vary. You have to melt the chocolate until it is soft and liquidy, stirring after every 30 seconds. Overcooking will make the chocolate grainy and cause the fat to separate. Hope that answers your query!

  21. jyothi says:

    in the recipe it is mentioned to use self rising flour which already contains baking powder and salt, and again the ingredients show baking powder and salt. So for 1 and 1/2 cup self rising flour which already contains baking powder and salt, shall we again add baking powder and salt of the given measurement.

  22. Sonya says:

    I dont have self raising flour.
    Can do with cake flour?
    How much baking pdr and baking soda to use.?

  23. Vijay says:

    Its really good.

  24. Mittal pandya says:

    Can I replace maida flour with wheat flour?

    • Ruchi says:

      Whole wheat flour adds a nutrition and a nutty flavor to the cakes but sometimes using it alone may result in dense cake (unless the recipe states otherwise).

      I have not experimented with wheat flour but if you really want to switch, I would suggest using half and half – 1/2 of wheat flour and half or all purpose flour (maida).

  25. Angie | Fiesta Friday says:

    7 minutes?! No way! Ok, ok, I trust you 😃😄 I need to give this a try. Pinning!

  26. Petra says:

    A great cake and in seven minutes?! That is a treat! Thank you for bringing this to Fiesta Friday! 🙂

  27. Judi Graber says:

    How can you go wrong with a 7 minute dessert and chocolate too! Microwave and healthy – what’s not to like. Thanks for sharing with everyone at Fiesta Friday 🙂

  28. Priyanka says:

    Absolutely amazing recipe..I made a single batch of this cake to test the recipe and it turned out fantastic! Tried the second batch in silicone moulds cupcakes and they came out perfect too. This recipe is flawless and I am going to try this chocolate cake recipe forever now. Real quick and easy.

  29. Guneet Kaur says:

    What is an alternate of cocoa powder?

    • Ruchi says:

      Guneet, you can use any chocolate bar for this recipe. Grind chocolate to its powdered form and use as a substitute for cocoa powder. You may also need to adjust the sugar slightly to compensate the sweetness from the chocolate.

  30. Pritee kanoria says:

    Hi..i tried the recipe in cup cakes …but the cakes came out as if they have not been cooked properly…rather the netted look in cakes wasnt there…and the chocolate flavour is somehow missing…can u please guide?

    • Ruchi says:

      Pritee, this has been so far my most successful recipe, so would definitely like to learn what went wrong and would be happy to help.

      How long did you cook the cupcakes?

  31. chirag says:

    we can use condensed milk insted of milk

    • Ruchi says:

      Chirag, I have not tried this recipe with condensed milk. Also, adding condensed milk will require a lot of adjustments in the recipe – the liquid and sugar part.

  32. Sneha says:

    Hi. Can we substitute brown sugar for something else??

    • Ruchi says:

      Sneha, you can substitute brown sugar for granulated white sugar. Would like to add, that brown sugar adds a moist texture to a cake as compared to white sugar.

  33. priti says:

  35. Sonal Mohare says:

    Hi Ruchi, the cake looks very yummy. Would like to know the measurement in Millilitres for milk and oil. How much is 1 cup in terms of Mls.

  37. Archana says:

    Cake is awesome I love texture of cake yummy

  38. Archana says:

    Cake is awesome but it take more tme than u mentioned n crack occur in the middle of cake but overall cake is nice

    • RK says:

      Thanks for trying the recipe Archana! I have baked this cake many times and it bakes for exactly 6-7 minutes, higher than that results in a dry cake. Energy outputs per microwave oven vary wildly, and maybe because of that cooking time was longer for you. There are couple of reasons for the cracks –
      1. Cakes crack if the cake pan/bowl is filled too much or your cake bowl is too small for the recipe.
      2. Opening the microwave oven too frequently. This causes the temperature in the oven to drop resulting in cracks.
      Hope this answers your query.

  39. Mrs.Nilufar Daruwalla says:

    Dear Ruchi,
    Thanks for such an easy recipe, which can be made in minutes. In fact I love your blog and always look forward to your recipes, which are very simple to make and tastes very good.

    I tried this 7 minute microwave cake. But my cake was not as grainy as seen in your picture. It was little dense and not so moist, as others have said. The taste was very nice. My girls loved it. So can you tell me where I must have gone wrong.

    Thanks once again.

    • RK says:

      Thanks for your wonderful and kind words Mrs. Nilufar. Glad to hear that you are enjoying my recipes. I would suggest – try beating plenty of air into the batter by mixing oil and sugar first, before adding flour. This will make soft and moist cake.

This is the first ever cake and it is so delicious! So fast and easy to make as well. Super moist and tasty. I made two batches and I ended up eating the first batch myself. Finished it off with a cream topping also from your eggless cupcake recipe and will be making it again for sure. Great, thanks!

    Really impressive cake. Made couple of times and everytime it was a hit. Definitely a keeper recipe. All I made adjustments were the sugar quantity. I found it on the low side but otherwise perfect cake. Thanks Ruchi.
