For the Vanilla Cake

  • 1 cup All purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 3 tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • 3/4 cup Sugar Granulated
  • 1/2 cup Cooking Oil
  • 1/4 cup Milk
  • 1/4 cup Curds / Yogurt
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Essence
  • A Pinch Salt

Chocolate Cake

  • 3 tbsp Cocoa Powder + Half of the Vanilla Batter

Sugar Syrup

  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 3 tbsp Sugar


  • 1/2 cup Chocolate Chips

Dark Chocolate Ganache

  • 1 cup Dark Chocolate Compound chopped
  • 200 ml Fresh Cream

For the Ice Cream Layers

  • Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Chocolate Chip Ice Cream


Sugar Syrup

  • Bring to boil the water along with sugar until melted, then cook in low flame till it thickens.

Vanilla Cake

  • In a bowl take the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt and fluff well.
  • Next add oil, vanilla essence, curds, milk and blend well. Finally add 1/4 cup water, mix. Then slowly add the rest of the 1/4 cup depending on how thick your batter is. I had to use the whole of 1/4 cup as microwave cake batter needs to be little loose.

Chocolate Cake

  • Remove 1/2 cup of the above batter for making chocolate batter. Mix in cocoa powder and combine gently.
  • Grease the bowl with ghee, pour half of the batter using 1/4 measuring cup and Microwave for 1 min 20 secs.
  • Rest for a minute and transfer to a plate.
  • Repeat till you are done with both the batters.
  • Meanwhile, make the sugar syrup till it thickens. When the cake is done and resting, prick with fork and pour the sugar syrup over the cake.

How to assemble the Ice Cream Cake Sandwich

  • Scoop the required Ice creams to a bowl and let it stand to become soft or you can spread it well.
  • Take the chocolate layer first, spread Vanilla Ice Cream evenly, sprinkle the dark Chocolate Chips over it.
  • Press the vanilla cake over this, spread the chocolate ice cream evenly, then layer it with Chocolate cake.
  • Repeat another layer of vanilla ice cream, dark chocolate chips. Finally, press in the vanilla cake.
  • Freeze for 30 mins.


  • MW the cream for a min, add chopped dark chocolate compound, MW for 30 secs. Whisk well till mixed completely.
  • Ganache will thicken when cooled, else you can MW for another 30 secs.
  • When the cake is frozen, remove and quickly spread the ganache all over the cake and freeze until serving.


I used a 6 Inch Microwave safe bowl that was greased with Ghee for the cake to slide out. You can use butter as well.
