Fast strawberry banana and chocolate cake in microwave
What can I say about this cake? It's just very easy to make, takes no time, fluffy, fruity, moist and just yummy!
1 cup of brown sugar
4 tbsp of cream
2 tsp of baking powder
3 tbsp of cocoa powder
1 and 1/4 cup of plain flour
Strawberries and bananas for filling
300 grams of milk chocolate
200 ml of cream
1 cup of water
4 tbsp of sugar
I used my smallest baking tin, which is 7 inches from one side to another.
Whip egg whites until stiff peaks and add in sugar, whip 2 min more. In separate dish, quickly whip egg yolks with cream,cocoa powder. Add egg yolks to the whites and gently stir. Mix baking powder with flour and add in to the egg mixture. Stir gently. Cake batter is ready. I divide it in three (turned out that batter was divided not in equal parts, but that's o.k)and bake each part separately using my small tin for 3-4 min in max power. Baking time varies as microwaves are different, just check the cake with a wooden stick- it must come out clean when inserted to the cake. While you bake cake layers, prepare syrup. Just put sugar in water and boil until sugar will dissolve completely.
Melt chocolate in double boiler or in microwave. Whip cream with melted chocolate.
Slice up fruits. Place one cake layer in dish, sprinkle with syrup before spreading chocolate cream. Spread cream evenly and place sliced bananas on top of the frosting.
Now place the second layer on top of it, sprinkle again with syrup, spread cream and place strawberries.
Cover with the last layer and spread the rest of the cream on top, decorate with whole strawberries.
Let the cake rest in fridge for 30 min before serving.
