Microwave Coffee Cake – Salwaa Smith – Cape Malay Cooking & Other Delights
I’ve adapted my microwave chocolate cake recipe into a coffee cake. This cake is so soft and delicious, you’ll never say it was made in the microwave.

Microwave Coffee Cake

2 – 3 Tbsp coffee granules (depending on the strength of the coffee)
Pinch of salt
1 cup water, heated for 1 minute in microwave
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs
1 tsp caramel essence
1 cup cake flour
1 cup sugar
4 tsps baking powder

Grease a round micro-wave proof dish, line bottom with wax paper.
Heat 1 cup water in a small bowl in the microwave for 1 minute, stir in coffee granules.
Add the oil, eggs, caramel essence and mix until well blended.
In a separate bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
Add the coffee mixture to the flour and whisk until batter is smooth and well blended.
Pour the batter into prepared dish.
Microwave on high 7 – 8 minutes on medium high.
Some moist spots may remain but will disappear on standing.
Let the cake stand for 5 minutes, invert onto serving plate.
Peel off wax wrap, cool.
Pour white ganache over the cake and enjoy.

To make the ganache:
100g white chocolate (I used Nestle)
2 ½ Tbsp fresh cream
Heat the cream in the microwave add the chopped chocolate. Stir to dissolve. Pour the ganache over the cake. Let the ganache stand for a bit if it’s too runny.
