  4. Gradually add the oil while beating the batter continuously. 
  5. Fold in the sifted flour with a wooden spatula/spoon. 
  6. Pour into the container and microwave for 7 minutes. Let it stand for 5 minutes.
  7. 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. 
  8. 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, stit again if necessary. 
  9. To assemble, cut the chocolate cake into 2 layers. 
  10. 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.
