This quick soft and yummy cake is a great choice for busy mums – with only taking about 10 minutes to make from cracking the egg to serving on a plate – it’s a winner for those busy nights.
You could flavour in different ways such adding a few tablespoons of cocoa for a chocolate cake or couple of drops of lemon flavouring for a lemon cake.
The cake is soft, moist and airy and the added chocolate chips made the kids smile!
175g Caster Sugar
140g Self-raising Flour
1 Tsp vanilla Essence
50g Chopped Milk Chocolate
In a bowl add the oil, eggs and vanilla
Beat together with a whisk until pale and creamy
Add the self-raising flour and sugar
Whisk until all the mixture is combined well with no lumps.
Add the chopped chocolate into the batter and stir in.
In a greased and floured microwave proof baking dish add the batter
Put into the microwave and on high power cook for 8 minutes. ( My microwave is a 1000w – so you may need to increase the cooking time by a minute or two if you watts are lower)
Enjoy the quick easy cake with warm or cold. They make great lunch box treats too.
