Ingredients:All Purpose Flour / Maida - 1 cup / 8 oz
Castor Sugar / Powdered Sugar - 1 cup / 8 oz
Butter- 2 tbsp's
Egg's - 2
Unsweetened Coco Powder - 1/2 cup / 4 oz (or any cocoa flavored health drink powder)
Oil - 1/3 cup / 3 oz
Baking Powder - 1 tsp
Coffee Powder - 2 tsp's(optional)
Vanilla Essence - 5 ml
Salt - a pinch
Mix All purpose flour and Baking Powder and salt. Sieve them for atleast 3 time's. This is to combine the baking powder evenly along with the flour. Mix Coco Powder and Coffee powder with the flour and keep aside. [Let me call it all as Flour Mix.]
Beat the 2 egg's for atleast 2 minutes and set aside. Beat the Sugar and Butter, add whisked egg's and Oil to sugar and Butter Mix. keep beating all for 3 minute's atleast. add vanilla essence and mix well.
Now keep adding the Flour Mix little my little to the Egg mix, Mix them well with a Spatula.
If the Mix is so thick, add few drop's of warm milk to make the flour egg mix little thin.
Grease a 3 inch Microwave safe bowl with Butter and Line it with a Baking Sheet. Pour the Flour Egg Mix to the Bowl and level the top by the spatula.
Microwave the cake on High [900 W] for about 3 minute's. To check whether the cake is cooked or not, insert a knife and ensure it comes out clean without any sticky, when pulled out.
Now Pre-Heat the Microwave oven up to 220C, and put the cake for about 2 to 3 minutes for the top of the cake to get slightly browned. Remove it from the Microwave and Let the cake cool
for about 5 - 7 minute's. Dust some Powdered Sugar upon the Cake if desired.
