Cake batter

  • 1½ cups (220g) flour
  • ¼ cup (30g) dark cocoa
  • 2 tsp (10g) baking powder
  • ¾ cup (130g) sugar
  • ½ cup (100ml) vegetable oil
  • 1¼ cup (300ml) warm water

Ganache/ Frosting

  • 1 cup (150g) chocolate
  • 4 tsp (20ml) vegetable oil
  • ½ cup (80g) peanuts


Step 1

In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, then sift the cocoa powder and baking powder, and then add the sugar and salt. Whisk them together until well combined and uniform, then add the oil and room temperature water, and whisk them together until smooth and there are no more lumps. Line a 10 inches baking pan with parchment paper at the bottom, then pour the cake batter and spread it evenly. Put it in the microwave, then let bake for about 6 minutes at the highest setting (the recipe shown in the video used the highest setting but you can set it at only a high setting and keep an eye on the cake until it’s cooked through), and remove it from the microwave once done cooking or a toothpick inserted at the center come out clean.

Step 2

Cut around the sides of the cake to release it, then place a large plate on top of the baking dish, and flip it upside down to unmold the cake. Remove the paper at the bottom of the cake, then let it cool completely, and prepare the ganache or frosting. In a small mixing bowl, add the chocolate, then let it melt either with a double boiler or in a microwave, and then mix in the oil until well combined and incorporated. Chop the roasted peanuts, then add them to the mixture as well, and give them a good stir until well combined. Pour the ganache on top of the cooled cake, then spread it evenly, and cover the sides as well. Let it sit for a few minutes or let it chill in the fridge until the frosting has fully set, then serve, and enjoy!
