Is it one sort of microwaveable container or two (half mixture in each)? This makes a single victoria style sponge cake, this is a very buttery kind of sponge made in a dome shape. You can drizzle the top with warmed syrup and serve it as a sponge pudding. If you have plastic, microwaveable cake tins you can split the mixture and cook it like a traditional layered sponge. It will be pale unlike an oven baked cake, microwave cakes are often iced to hide this. The Cookit Team

It would be helpful if the microwave power was included, to help with knowing whether to adjust cooking times up/down or simply adjust the power level of my microwave to suit the recipe.
Name: Aruna 29th October 2014

Nicely explained, I actually made this victoria sponge cake today, it is a universal fact that cake cooked in microwave oven tastes delicious. Microwave oven usually saves time in cooking and does retain the nutritive value of food. It is guaranteed method of fast cooking. Best Cookware Set Reviews

Hi there wanne make the cake but not sure what 6oz means.Can you explain please would appreciate it.

Name: Anele 21st February 2016
Oz is the abreviation for ounces, you have the equivalent in grammes too. Self raising flour is substituted by regular flour with baking powder added.

Name: Tricky 23rd October 2016
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.

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.
