Four years ago, I moved to a place which was quite unfamiliar to me. Being a person attached to home, it wasn’t the easiest move. It took me several months to get used to everything. Weather, travel, making new friends and most importantly food.
I tried surviving on a dubba service for exactly a month and just gave up after that. Couldn’t stand it after a point. That’s when I got into the kitchen and started experimenting. I stayed in a PG so didn’t have a full fledged kitchen but made good use of the microwave I had access to. It started off with maggi but then my love for desserts started growing and I had a craze for mug cakes.
They were the easiest, most fastest thing to make and best part was- NO NEED FOR AN OVEN.(Although now thinking of it, I don’t think I could live without my oven.)
It was my comfort food when I was totally stressed from all that exam fever and it just made me feel good. Anything chocolate happens to be my best friend. I never need a reason to want to eat it. And one of my favourite chocolates happen to be Ferrero Rocher.
I remember as a kid, I would sit and take my own sweet time, savouring every layer while other kids would finish it in one bite. The creamy chocolate layer was my favourite and even today, I can sit and finish a whole box all by myself.
Lately, a lot of my readers have been asking for a no-bake recipe. I know sometimes it gets quite annoying to wait to preheat your oven and then the cake takes double the amount of time to bake. So we’re always looking for alternatives. And even though I’m not a fan of baking in a microwave, I swear by this recipe. When I’m feeling very lazy, this is my go-to recipe.
You can also make a whole cake with it. Just increase the ingredients accordingly and use a bigger bowl to bake. But it’s more fun eating them as tea cakes or better still straight out of the mug!
