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.

My 6 year old daughter and i just made this cake. We used caster sugar.
Google coverted 6oz to 170g.
Resulting sponge is just how i remember it when my Mum used to make this sponge in the microwave.
Good result after 6mins 30seconds in 900w microwave using a large Pyrex dish.
We used electric whisk and preparation was quick.
Going to try adding jam or syrup next time :)
Daughter very happy.
