For the third week of BM#54, I will be doing an interesting theme that will have recipes suitable for Dorm. The idea was suggested by Varada who’s daughter would be using these recipes. So I wanted to cover recipes that would be suitable for dorms that will have basic gadgets to cook these dishes. Since getting everything suitable for that theme, I thought we could do Easy School Recipes, some Single Serve Dorm Recipes or just Microwave Dishes.
Today’s Eggless Chocolate Cake is a relatively easy dish to make. It gets done in flat 3 -4 mins, depending on your Microwave. I did mine under 4 mins, felt I should have removed it by 3. So for safer side, let me say this gets cooked by 3 mins. I also made a dark chocolate ganache. However kids using this recipe can just make the basic chocolate cake and enjoy.

How to make the Ganache
