Things To Note If You Wish To Bake This Cake In Convection Mode

Start by turning your microwave into the convection mode. For that you need to put the oven into preheating mode. Start by pressing the ‘echo/stop’ button, then press the convection button. Press the select button and your microwave will go on preheating mode. Make sure to place the steel wire inside the oven. Set the desired temperature and press the start button.

As soon as the oven is preheated, make sure your cake batter is ready to be baked without much ado. The microwave will be able to retain the heat for about 10 minutes or the earlier you are able to put the cake batter, the better it will be. After you have placed your cake batter inside, put the microwave on the convection mode.

Once the cake is done, take it out from the microwave and let it cool down completely. Make sure not to stop the microwave from the switch board. Let the cake cool down for a while inside the microwave. And when the sound of the microwave stops, it means your cake has cooled down. You can take it out and let it rest for a few minutes and serve it

So, in no time, your eggless chocolate cake is ready to be relished or to be served to your guests.. Enjoy! Make sure that you use the best quality of chocolate made available at your supermart to bake this cake so that the richness of the cake is intact. You can use Amul, Lindt, Nestle or Hershey’s chocolate to bake this cake.
