For Cake:

  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tbsp hot water
  • 3 tsp coffee powder, mixed in 1 tbsp hot water
  • ½ cup oil
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ½ cup curd

  • 1 cup maida

For Soaking Syrup:

For Truffle Topping:

  • 300 g dark chocolate, chopped
  • A few Hide and Seek biscuits/chocolate cookies
  • 200 g cream


  1. Line with paper a 7-8 inch micro proof plastic box or a cake container. Grease the paper.

  2. Sift flour, baking powder, and soda. Set aside.

  4. Gradually add the oil while beating the batter continuously.

  5. Pour into the container and microwave for 7 minutes. Let it stand for 5 minutes.
  6. For the soaking syrup, mix all the ingredients together and microwave for a minute. Stir until all the sugar has dissolved. Allow it to cool.
  7. For the truffle topping, microwave the cream for a minute. Add the chocolate and mix well until a smooth paste is obtained. If required, microwave again for 30 seconds. Stir the chocolate with the spatula and let it stand for a few minutes, stir again if necessary.

  8. To assemble, cut the chocolate cake into 2 layers.
  9. Put the bottom layer of the cake on a flat plate, soak lightly with the coffee syrup. Spread ⅓ of the prepared truffle mix on it.

  11. Decorate the cake with chocolate cookies/Hide and Seek biscuits, placing them a little higher than the cake at an angle. Sprinkle crunched cookies on top if you like.
