Microwave Cake Recipes

The following recipes are easy to make and can be made quickly using your microwave. I know many people hesitate to cook in their microwave, but with the correct tools the microwave can save you time and money when cooking.

When I make a cake in the microwave I use Tupperware's Heat N Serve containers. The 6 ΒΌ cup round container seems to work the best. There are other microwave containers out there, but I have only tried Tupperware's. I do know that microwave cakes tend to come out hard when cooked in glass or corningware, so I don't recommend you use these types of containers when trying to bake a cake in the microwave.
