How to Make No Bake Chocolate Cake
Even if you don’t have an oven, you can still treat yourself to some delicious chocolate cake. All you need is a pan, some simple ingredients, and around 15 minutes to complete everything.
5-Minute Crafts is ready to show you some simple steps for how to make a fast and tasty chocolate cake on your stove. We also included a recipe for chocolate ganache to make your creation taste even better.
What you’ll need
- All purpose flour — 1.4 oz (40 grams)
- Sugar — 2 1/4 oz (70 grams)
- Cocoa powder (unsweetened) — 0.9 oz (25 grams)
- Baking soda — 1/4 teaspoon
- Milk — 2 fluid oz (60 grams)
- Butter — 1/4 stick (1 oz or 30 grams)
- Egg — 1
How to make the cake
Step 1: Put all the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, cocoa powder, and baking soda) in a bowl.
Step 2: Combine them together with the help of a whisk or fork.
Step 3: Add milk, the egg, and some melted butter to the bowl with the dry mixture.
Step 4: Mix everything thoroughly with a help of a whisk.
Step 5: Take a pan with a thick bottom and put it on low heat. Melt a little bit of butter on it so that your cake batter doesn’t stick to it.
Step 6: Pour your cake mixture into your pan and cover it with a lid. Let it bake for 7-10 minutes on low heat.
Tip: The cooking time really depends on your pan, so from time to time, you can take the lid off and check your cake.
Step 7: Check if your cake is ready with the help of a toothpick. If the batter doesn’t stick to it, the cake is fully cooked.
Step 8: Once it’s ready, cover the pan with the lid and remove it from the heat. Let it rest under the lid until the ganache is ready.
How to make chocolate ganache
You can add some chocolate ganache to your cake to make it even more chocolatey. You will need some heavy cream and dark chocolate of your taste. The proportion needs to be 1:1 (one-part chocolate equals one-part heavy cream).
Step 1: Put a saucepan on medium heat and pour some heavy cream into it.
Step 2: Add some dark chocolate, and with a small rubber spatula, start slowly stirring the mixture until the chocolate melts and everything is well-combined.
Finish the cake.
Transfer your cake onto a plate and pour the ganache on top of it. You can also add some berries or fruit if you want. Eat it warm or let it cool in the fridge before serving.
