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 enough 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!
