Super Easy 5 Minute Eggless Microwave Oreo Biscuit Cake




Hungry for a cake, but lazy to make an elaborate one? Here's a quick and easy recipe for a semi-homemade cake, so to speak.

Ingredients :
1 large packet and 1 small packet of oreo biscuits (19 pairs. 38 biscuits in total)
1 cup milk (240 ml)
3/4 tsp baking powder OR 3/4 tsp eno
3 tbsp sugar


Method:
Crush the biscuits roughly.  [Do not remove the cream]. Transfer to a blender. Add the other ingredients and blend into a smooth paste.
Grease a microwave safe dish liberally with butter, oil or ghee. [You can also line the base with parchment paper/ butter paper to get a clean top while inverting. Please use good quality parchment paper. I first greased the bottom and sides and placed the parchment paper like so:









]

Transfer the cake batter into the dish. Microwave for 5 minutes [in regular microwave mode]. You will see some moist spots on the top and sides. That's fine.
Do not touch the cake for atleast another 15 minutes, you want to let it cook with the heat trapped inside.


[If you wish to invert the cake, let it cool for 30 minutes. Check this post for more tips. If you have used parchment paper to line the base, you can invert it in lesser time. ]

You can top the cake with sugar powder. Just take some powdered sugar in a strainer and splash it all over the cake.


Perfect for a last minute (oops last 5 minute) snack! Happy New Year!

Update : Made this with Oreo orange creme biscuits.  Loved the subtle orange flavour. This time, I used baking powder instead of eno. And the lines on top - that's Nutella!



Thanks to the internet for letting me know you can make cakes with biscuits! I experimented with my favourite Oreo cookies and now I have a quick cake recipe.

    1. Hmm, don't soak then. And try with baking powder. Should definitely work.

  9. Hi Genelia, you can make it in your solo microwave. Try 5 minutes and then increase the time by 1 or 2 minutes if required. It's ok to have some moist patches in the top after 5 minutes.
    Just make the batter, put it in the greased microwave-safe bowl and set the time to 5 or 6 minutes. You don;t have to change the temperature setting.

  23. I was searching for a microwave cake recipe for couple of days and finally found this. I promised my 3.11 yrs old twins that i will bake a cake for them this week end. Today I involved them in making this cake and they were really excited. The cake came out very well... used Pillsbury vanilla icing and sprinkled some decorations. My kids just love it. Thank you for sharing simple yet wonderful recipe.

  24. After reading this recipe I told my 3.11 yr twins that we will bake cake together this weekend. They were excited and eagerly waiting for saturday. Today we all made this cake together. Kids helped me in breaking the Oreo (some of them went in their stomach during the proces :) ). The cake came out very well more than what I had expected. Used pillsbury vanilla icing and kiddos just loved it. Thank you for sharing a simple yet wonderful recipe.

  32. I can't believe how easy this is! The problem with mine was, maybe I was using a very thick glass dish to make this. Only the sides were getting baked:( Well, I scraped those parts out (ate them) and then I used these really thin saucers from a tea-cup set. Once those lil saucers went in, VOILA! AND ON THE SEVENTH DAY, ALLIE SAID, "LET THERE BE CAKE!" More like mini personalized cakes. But they were epic nonetheless.

    Best part, all the ingredients are always in my kitchen. Doesn't take a genius to make it. And I love them. :*

    Thanks <3
