Yogurt Cake with Chocolate Glaze

Yes I have made cake with curd before but never in Microwave ( in the same mode which we heat food) so this was the first time…. and it came out really gud... it had very soft and gluee texture which I really liked… and above all was baked in just 6 mins… too good for a person like me who has zero patience…. if baked in convection mode or OTG it would have take 40 mins… so happy meeeeeee…..

I served it with chocolate glaze… same which is topped on doughnuts… and sprinkled some colourful sugar dots to make it more tempting (though my brother didn’t like it butttt I don’t care…. hehhehehe)


  • Just out of microwave….


  • With chocolate glaze and sugar dotsssss….
