Making Cake Or Cobbler In Your Microwave

Just because it is summer doesn’t mean you don’t want to be able to make nice desserts for your family. The problem is: who wants to turn on their oven to bake a cake or make a cherry cobbler? Here are some recipes I have made often in my microwave. I tested them on my family and they were very satisfied.

Blueberry or Cherry Cobbler


2 (21 oz) can blueberry or cherry pie filling
1 tsp. grated orange peel
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 cup milk
3 Tbls marg. softened
2 Tbs sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 cups Bisquick Mix
Vanilla ice cream

Combine filling, orange peel, and nutmeg in deep rectangle shaped microwave container. (I use Tupperware's Large Deep Rock N Serve container) Microwave uncovered at 70% power for 8 minutes or until hot, stirring twice.

Combine remaining ingredients in a separate bowl and beat vigorously 20 strokes. Drop 12 dumplings onto the hot filling. Microwave uncovered at 70% power for 10 to 14 minutes or until dumplings are no longer doughy.

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

Super Easy Cake


One box of cake mix, any flavor. I like to use the super moist ones. They seem to come out better in the microwave.
One can of diet soda, any flavor. You can use regular soda as well.

Mix the cake mix and soda together well in a large bowl.

Spray a microwavable container with Pam. Now, be careful the kind of bowl you use. First, it must be microwave safe. I don't recommend glass containers. My mom tried to make this cake in a corningware container and it came out as hard as a rock. I use a Tupperware Heat N Serve container. This container comes in four sizes, but the 6 1/4 cup one works the best.

Pour the cake batter into the container and place the seal on it. Put it in the microwave for ten minutes. Let it set in the microwave a couple minutes and then remove the container from the microwave.

Remove the cover. Place a plate over the container and flip the container up-side-down. The cake will slide right out. Once it cools you can frost it if you would like. My husband likes to eat it as it is with some vanilla ice cream. Yummy.

My favorite mixture is chocolate cake mix and diet cherry soda.
