Tea-cake for an evening

I was about to wind up my day’s work and felt hungry. Suddenly I remembered the Tea-cake recipe, which I had been through http://simpleindianrecipes.com/instantcake.aspx .

Took my tea mug and baked my tea-cake in my micro-oven in 10 minutes. Due to technical reasons it took 10 minutes, otherwise, it is 5 minutes only according to the above mentioned site. I gave my thanks to my God Almighty for the cake and relished. You can try, it is very simple.

Required Ingredient


  • Three spoon full Oil (vegetable Oil)
  • Three full spoon Sugar (powdered)
  • Three spoon full milk
  • Three spoon scoop of All-purpose flour (maida)
  • Three spoon Cocoa powder
  • One Egg
  • 1/4 spoon Backing powder
  • 1/4 spoon Cooking Soda (Sodium Bicarbonate)
  • 1/4 spoon Almond-Essence (Optional)

Preparation (max. 5 min.)

  1. Pre-heat the micro-oven in grill mode for 5 minutes to set the temperature inside the oven.
  2. Spread the cooking oil inside the Tea-mug.
  3. Add oil, sugar and milk. Mix them well with the spoon.
  4. Add egg, also mix it nicely.DSC03664
  5. Add All-purpose flour, Cocoa powder, Baking powder and Cooking soda. Mix them well.
  6. Place the Tea-mug with the mixed dough and bake it for 5 minutes – Grill mode. (max heat facility  in my oven is 750 deg.)
  7. After five minutes, I changed the backing mode into Grill cum micro-oven mode for another 3 minutes.
  8. Take the ***hot*** Tea-mug outside with precaution and check by inserting a spoon at the side of the cake. If the spoon gets a stick dough, then  bake it for another 2 or 3 minutes in the same Grill cum micro-oven mode
  9. Hot or cooled, it’s your choice, with tea or coffee, relish the cake.
