A woman’s delicious chocolate cake recipe without an oven receives 20 million views.

It’s common to desire a rich, chocolatey baked goodie without really wanting to “bake.” Even though most of us enjoy eating them, there are situations when turning on the oven isn’t an option. Not to add, sometimes we only need the basics. Of course, sometimes it’s wonderful to put in the extra effort, but what if all you want is a tasty dish without all the effort? This dish is perfect if you’re certainly more of an eater than a baker. Get ready for a melty and gooey chocolate cake that doesn’t require a mixer or an oven.

If you rarely have eggs in, don’t fret. This recipe doesn’t require them. Yet somehow, it still creates the perfect cake.

Wondering how you can make a cake with so few ingredients and so little prep? Find out below.


Here’s what you will need:

For the cake:

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 3/4 Tblsp. cocoa powder

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp vanilla powder (optional)

5/8 cup sugar

~1 cup milk (or 220ml)

Just under 1/4 cup cooking oil (or 50ml)

1/2 tsp lemon juice

For the chocolate drizzle:

5 oz. of dark chocolate

~1/4 cup milk

1/2 tsp butter

  1. Sort the dry ingredients first.


Place a strainer over a mixing basin and add the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, and baking soda. If using, add the vanilla powder. Fill the bowl with the ingredients after sifting them through the sieve. In the bowl, add the sugar and stir.

  1. Add the wet ingredients after that.

Pour the milk directly into the bowl and then add 50ml of your preferred cooking oil (vegetable or liquid coconut oil works well).

Pour in the lemon juice and mix. The mixture will thicken as it combines, although it should be rather runny initially 3. Here comes the “baking.”


You’ll need a steamer for this. Heat a large pot of water and place the steamer on top.

Prepare a large, tall cake pan by greasing it with butter. Add a piece of baking paper to the bottom of the pan, then carefully pour in your mixture.

Cover with aluminum foil and place in the steamer.

  1. Wait… then leave to cool.


Unfortunately, though you won’t need your oven for this recipe, there’s still a lot of patience involved. For best results, steam over medium heat for an hour.

Once cooked, remove the aluminum foil carefully, using tongs to prevent steam burns. Set the cake on the side and leave it to cool.

  1. Next, prepare the delicious chocolate drizzle.

Add enough water to a big wok or frying pan to cover the surface, about 1 to 2 inches deep. Adjust the heat to medium.

Pour the milk into a tiny glass bowl that holds the 150g of dark chocolate and place it inside the pan. Reduce the heat to low, whisk regularly, and let the chocolate melt.

Stir in the remaining ingredient (1/2 tsp butter) after it has melted. Drizzle over your cake, slice, and savor.

Are you curious as to how on earth a cake may be baked in a steamer? It’s quite easy.

However, there will be some variations from baking in the oven. The cake won’t have as much flavor and its edges won’t brown.

Luckily, this is a chocolate cake, so we don’t think the flavor will be lacking here.

This is a versatile recipe that could even be made vegan, simply use plant-based versions of the milk and butter.
