World's Simplest Cake

I’m not much of a cook.
Doesn't look very tempting in this picture.
But its totally Yummy! ;-)
There are only a couple of things that I can work up in the kitchen- Chai, instant popcorn, Maggi and this surprisingly delicious cake brownie thing which I like to call the “World’s Simplest Cake”

Now this cake is one of the simplest desserts that you can make! Plus most of the ingredients are easily available.
One of my best friends taught me the trick, and since then I’ve taught this cake to lots of people, and believe me they all loved it. Try it out:

[Writing down exactly from the recipe that my friend wrote for me:] 
1 cup Maida (Refined flour)
½ cup cooking oil
1 cup curd (preferably thick in consistency)
1 cup grated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon Baking soda/Eno
½ cup Cocoa powder (the unsweetened Cadbury kind)
¼ teaspoon Coffee ( *very very little*)

1. Mix all ingredients. It will become a semi solid paste. Add a little milk to make it slightly liquid.
2. Pour into microwave safe container.
3. Microwave for 7 minutes.
4. Remove and let it stay in a cool dark place for about 15-20 minutes.
5. Remove from container. Serve warm, with vanilla ice-cream.

(This post was written basically to keep an online record of the ingredients needed, since I always mess up the proportions. But if you do happen to try it out, leave experience in comments!)

PS: This post reminds me of OB Cookie’s blog. It makes a pretty interesting plus useful read. With every post she manages to write a post, *and* throw in a delicious recipe.
PPS: My third bit for Medic Music is done (..actually, it has been done for a while now) but my microphone’s busted now. So unless everyone likes a drone with their music- it’ll have to wait till I have enough money to get a new mic.


  1. hmmm.. worth a try!

    btw, found a great way out for audio-only uploads to blogger.

    get a google site, dedicate it for uploading your mp3s. then use this snippet of code to embed it on the blog:

    replace [MP3_file] with the link (right click on download link on the google site page and left click on copy link location: if you are using a PC. dunno about macs!)

    say what?

  2. nice simple way of embedding audio only files on blogger. upload ur mp3 somewhere, grab the link, then embed this code snippet in ur blog post:

    replace [mp3_file] with link and get a sleek audio player on ur blog

  3. wokay. double posted the comment! thanks to browser golmaal! sorry!

  4. Thanks for the post...coz the same problem..messing with the proportions.
    I still remember what a stone i made and my bro still teasing me fore remaking it.. :)
