  • Dry ingredients: 2.5 cups - All-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup - Sugar
  • 1.5 tbsp - Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp - Baking Soda
  • Salt a pinch
  • Wet ingredients: 3/4 cup - Butter
  • 2 tbsp - Vanilla pod/extract

  • How to Make Microwave Cake Recipe:

    1. Pre-preparation:
    2. Take one part thick curd and two parts water and blend to make buttermilk.
    3. Pre-heat the oven at 300 degrees centigrade
    4. Baking in a microwave oven, especially a cake, is actually a piece of cake!
    5. With a hand blender or blender jar, add the sugar (if using granulated). Powder it down till fine.
    6. Add the butter and beat with the sugar till creamy.
    7. Add the buttermilk and blend till creamy and frothy. Add the vanilla extract and blend again.
    8. Add the baking soda, blend and leave till you see bubbles on the liquid surface. Add apple sauce/pulp and blend again till completely mashed
    9. Sieve the dry ingredients two to three times to remove any lumps.
    10. Gradually fold in the liquid to the dry ingredients till you get a lump free batter. Do not mix rigorously
    11. Transfer the batter to a greased microwave dish or casserole. Bake it for three minutes using the Combi option (or the suitable option on your microwave) for 2-3 minutes. Once the timer rings, rotate the cake and check if done and bake for another 2-3 minutes.
    12. Insert a long needle or toothpick to check if the cake is done.
    13. Once done, remove and let it cool.
    14. Flip it over a plate and release the cake from the bake tin.
    15. Garnish or serve with accompaniments of your choice.
