By Cookist

Don’t have an oven? Well, that doesn’t mean you can’t make delicious cakes! If you have had a craving for chocolate cake, but don’t have an oven, then don’t worry, we have just the recipe for you! This No-Oven Chocolate Cake is an easy, quick, decadent chocolate cake recipe made right on the stovetop! And no need for eggs either. It’s full of chocolate flavor, with a fudgy texture and rich, chocolatey taste (thanks to the chocolate cookies and chocolate ganache!). To make you’ll only need four ingredients: cookies, baking powder, milk, and chocolate ganache. Mix the ingredients together, cook on the stovetop for 40 minutes, and then decorate with ganache. So easy and delicious, it’s hard to imagine you can make it without an oven!


No Oven Cake Ingredients

Cookies – we used cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies (like Oreos)

Baking powder – NOT baking soda!

Milk – use full-fat (whole) milk for best results

Chocolate ganache – use store-bought or make your own


If you don’t feel like a ganache topping, you can also use chocolate buttercream or make a glaze icing. Whip up a quick and easy glaze icing by whisking together 2 cups of confectioners’ sugar, 2 tbsp butter, 1 tsp vanilla extract, and up to 4 tsp milk. Drizzle and spread over the cooled cake.No-Bake Oreo Cheesecake: the decadent, no-bake dessert recipe you’ll love

Add any decorations like chocolate or rainbow sprinkles, coconut, or nuts soon after glazing and before the icing sets. This way the toppings will stick to the dessert.

You can make this recipe in the oven too! Just use an oven-safe cake tin!

Add a teaspoon of instant coffee to the cake batter to accentuate the chocolate flavor!

Make your own ganache by mixing melted dark chocolate with a bit of heavy cream.
