Easiest Way To Bake a Cake In a Microwave!

Who doesn't enjoy a tasty cake? Cakes, in fact, are an essential feature of any celebration! This microwave cake will be as fluffy, delicious, and tempting as a traditional oven cake.

Make cakes for any occasion! Be it a birthday, anniversary, tea party or even late-night craving!

Many people believe that baking a cake in a microwave requires a convection microwave; but, is it necessary to have a convection microwave for baking a cake?

The answer is no. No, it is not. If you aren't equipped with a convection microwave, you may still bake a cake on the regular heating setting. It's wise to remember here that you may only use microwave-safe cookware.

Let's Dive In!

Before baking a cake in a standard microwave oven, first, understand the microwave heating cycle. A standard microwave does not include temperature settings. Instead, it has power levels ranging from 10% to 100%.

Power levels' representation may range from one microwave to the next. For example, some might have 10%, 20%… some might have 1, 2, 3, ... or 10,20, and so on.


Softened butter or margarine3/4 cup
Sugar3/4 cup
Flour (normal or self-rising)2/3 cup
Milk3 tablespoons
Eggs3 medium-sized
Cocoa powder (if you are baking a chocolate cake)1/3 cup
Vanilla extract7 teaspoon
Baking powder1 teaspoon

Preparation Method:

Step 1: Combine softened butter or margarine, sugar, and flour in a large mixing bowl (in the exact measure mentioned above). Begin mixing the cake batter by combining all of the ingredients in the bowl with a spoon or rubber spatula.

Step 2: Combine the remaining ingredients in a mixing bowl. Depending on the texture you want, you can use ordinary or self-rising flour (Regular/ordinary flour will provide a texture similar to that of a brownie). Pour in the milk and break the eggs. Now add 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence and baking powder.

Step 3: It's now time to flavor the cake. For a chocolate cake, add 1/3 cup cocoa powder. Add an additional teaspoon of vanilla essence for a vanilla cake.

Step 4: Using a fork, thoroughly mix ingredients. It is recommended to use an electric mixer to blend for 4-5 minutes. If you have a food processor, combine all of the ingredients and process for around 60 seconds.

Step 5: Pour the cake batter onto a microwave-safe dish (preferably a shallow one for best results). For microwave baking, do not use a metal baking pan.

Step 6: Bake the cake now. Cook the cake in the microwave for around 3-4 minutes on high power. In the microwave, you can see the cake bubble and puff. The method is comparable to oven baking.

Finally, the traditional toothpick test is the best technique to determine if the cake is entirely cooked. Simply insert a toothpick into the middle and pull it out. The cake is made when the toothpick comes out clean. If there is gooey cake residue on the toothpick, the cake has not been properly cooked. Don't be alarmed. Just reheat the cake in the microwave. Cook it in 1-minute intervals until it's ready.

Enjoy this very delicious and completely scrumptious microwave cake. You may top the cake with whatever icing you want and design it as you like!
