This is a modern cake method, using a microwave to cook the cake mixture. This is a very fast method for cake cooking. You will find that microwave cooking times vary, so adjust times to suit yours. Microwaved cakes do not brown like oven baked cakes, so icing or frosting can be used to make them a bit prettier.

I tried a recipe years ago called "Sophie's Pudding" which used 2 oz of all ingredients spread across the top of tin of apricots. Beautiful pudding which one could just brown slightly in oven/or under grill briefly. Add cream or custard, Perfect dessert. Cannot find recipe on line and want to try again from memory. Your website jogged me into action.
