Easy Eggless chocolate raisin cake ( in MW)



  1. Plain flour – 100 grams / 1 cup
  2. Baking powder – 1 tsp.
  3. Cocoa powder – 1.5 tbsp. (bit heaping)
  4. Salt – a pinch
  5. Milk – 1.5 cups
  6. Golden raisins/ kismis – 1/4 cup
  7. Rice bran oil – 3/4 cup ( I had used sunflower oil)
  8. Powdered sugar –  3/4 cup
  9. Vanilla essence – 1 tsp.


  1. Grease a Si ring mould with ghee and set aside.
  2. Sift together the plain flour, cocoa powder, salt & baking powder.
  3. Warm the milk in the microwave by heating it for a minute.
  4. Soak the raisins in the warm milk.
  5. Grind the raisins to a paste adding a little milk.
  6. Mix together the milk, raisin paste, powdered sugar, vanilla essence and rice bran oil.
  7. Fold in the sifted flour mixture. You will get a runny batter.
  8. Pour the batter into the prepared cake tin. Cook in the microwave oven on high power for 10 minutes. Open the door of the microwave only after 5 nore minutes have elapsed. Insert a skewer to check if the cake is done. Invert the cake on to a platter.
  9. Let this cake cool down completely to room temperature before serving. This cake is really soft and moist.
