Chocolate cakes are always top-tier in the dessert category, but what if we told you that you could take it up a notch? Presenting, the No-Oven Milo Cake recipe!
As we were searching for an easy cake recipe, we found ourselves lucky to see this recipe posted by YouTuber Yummy Kitchen. Their Milo Cake calls for simple ingredients—those you can easily find in the grocery! Plus, they “baked” the cake in a stovetop, making it ideal for people who don’t own an oven. And since Milo was our unofficial breakfast and merienda drink when we were kids, we’re sure this cake will bring back fun, childhood memories. Read on to get started!
No-Oven Milo Cake Recipe
- 1 cup all-purpose flour (100 grams)
- 4 packets of Milo (88 grams)

- 2 tablespoon cocoa powder
- 1 cup all-purpose cream (or milk / heavy cream)

- 1 tablespoon butter (or margarine)

How to make No-Oven Milo Cake Recipe
1 Mix flour, Milo, baking powder, baking soda in one bowl. You may sift them first to avoid lumps.
2 Add brown sugar, milk, oil, eggs, and vanilla extract to the Milo-flour mixture. Blend until smooth.
3 Line a baking pan with parchment paper or use a nonstick pan. Pour the batter onto the pan.
4 Tap the pan on the table to remove bubbles.
5 Cover with foil.
6 Create a make-shift steamer by placing a cooling rack in a huge pot. Boil some water.
7 Place the cake pan in the pot (water must be boiling!). Steam for 35 to 40 minutes over medium flame.
8 After steaming, take the pan out of the pot and remove the foil.
9 Do a toothpick test to check if it’s fully baked. The toothpick should come out clean.
10 Scrape the sides of the cake before removing it from the pan.
11 Place the pan on a cooling rack or plate. Flip it over to get the cake out.
12 Peel off the parchment paper. Set aside and let it cool.
Procedure (Milo frosting)
1 In a saucepan, combine Milo, cocoa powder, flour, salt.
2 Pour in the all-purpose cream.
3 Stir until smooth. Taste for sweetness and add sugar as needed.
4 Let it simmer over low heat, stirring constantly until it gets thick. Once it turns into a gooey consistency, add butter. Mix until it gets melted with the frosting.
5 Pour the frosting on the cake.
6 Sprinkle chocolate chips and enjoy!
