How to Make Microwave Cake Recipe

  • Pre-preparation:
  • Take one part thick curd and two parts water and blend to make buttermilk.
  • Pre-heat the oven at 300 degrees centigrade
  • Baking in a microwave oven, especially a cake, is actually a piece of cake!
  • With a hand blender or blender jar, add the sugar (if using granulated). Powder it down till fine.
  • Add the butter and beat with the sugar till creamy.
  • Add the buttermilk and blend till creamy and frothy. Add the vanilla extract and blend again.
  • 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
  • Sieve the dry ingredients two to three times to remove any lumps.
  • Gradually fold in the liquid to the dry ingredients till you get a lump free batter. Do not mix rigorously
  • 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.
  • Insert a long needle or toothpick to check if the cake is done.
  • Once done, remove and let it cool.
  • Flip it over a plate and release the cake from the bake tin.
  • Garnish or serve with accompaniments of your choice.
