Microwave Choco Walnut Cake

We had BBQ followed by a movie on Friday which went till 3 in the morning. Obviously all the routines got disturbed and we did not get the cake that we had promised for Shweets. Unfortunately she remembered it and started to cry. Thought of some quick microwave cake and made her do all the mixing. She enjoyed making and eating the cake. As it was a quick fix I did not frost the cake just topped it some chocolate syrup I think it would be good with some ice-cream on top.



It was a good one. Instead of the cocoa powder you can also try it out with the coffee powder and call it Coffee Walnut Cake.I made two small cakes with the below ingredients and hardly took 5 min. Microwave cooking turns out to be interesting !!!

This easy breezy Choco Walnut Cake makes it way to Aparna's No Bake Cake event
