1 Cup thick dahi
1/2 cup oil + 2 tbsp more
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup maida
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/4 cup cocoa powder
6-7 big strawberries chopped (sprinkle a little sugar on top and microwave for 30 seconds)
1-2 tbsp of milk if needed

The no need to cook Chocolate sauce for topping:
Mix 1/2 cup icing sugar with 2tbsp cocoa powder and enough water to make a thick creamy topping.

Mix together sugar, dahi , vanilla essence and oil till sugar dissolves completely. Sieve the dry ingredients together and gently fold into the yoghurt batter. If you find your batter to be a little too thick you can add 1-2 tbsp of milk to lighten it. Grease a Microwave safe glass Dish and pour half the batter. Place the microwaved strawberries on the batter in a thin even layer. Now pour the other half of the batter on top….taking care to cover the strawberries completely. Cook in the microwave for exactly 6 minutes. Cool cake completely. Run a knife around the edges to loosen cake. Tip the dish upside down to slide cake gently out of the dish. Drizzle the chocolate topping over the cake. Decorate with whipped cream, berries and sprinkles.

    Looks delicious! At what temperature does this have to be cooked in the microwave?

      Default setting….which I think is high!

    The cake looks delicious and so easy to make! If I want to reduce the quantity in half do I reduce the microwave time to 3 minutes?
