Hi Gemma! ! I am a 13 year old bold baker who don't but have a microwave oven. I'm really glad to see this recipe you have posted. I have a suggestion :will you please make microwave chocolate cake and choco chip biscuits. Thank you and sending love from Uae .
I'm sorry to hear that. It sounds like it may have overbaked. Keep in mind that your cake will continue to steam through (ie. bake) when it is removed from the microwave. I hope you give it another go :)
Hi Gemma, thank you for a great recipe. I’ve never cooked a cake in the microwave, curiosity got the better of me and to my surprise it turned out really well. I used Pyrex dishes. I’m trying to reduce sugar in my diet. Do you have a recommendation what i could use as a substitute in this recipe? Please
Hi Andrea! I have a free chart on how to substitute sugar in all of your baking. Hope this helps! Thank you for trying the recipe and for being with us :) https://www.biggerbolderbaking.com/how-to-substitute-sugar/
Gemma, you rock! Years ago I cooked a Clootie Dumpling in a round glass bowl lined with plastic wrap in the microwave oven. (I didn't know that could be done.) I got the recipe from a lovely old Scottish woman who was in my Scottish Country Dance group. It was delicious, and I served it to the dance group. (They ate it.) It was like the best cake I had ever cooked in an oven (and I understood that it was traditionally steamed or boiled in cheese-cloth. I've ordered three round silicone cake pans and plan to try your recipe in my microwave oven. I love your knowledge of baking, and your attention to detail in your instructions, without being pedantic.
You'll want to microwave it for a little less time than what's on the recipe. You can always add more time if it's not fully cooked. Just look for the tips I recommend in the video and on my written post. I hope you enjoy!
Luna, I always include a link to the recipe in the description box. I don't include measurements in videos as units change internationally and including all of them through video would cause confusion.
I make cakes in the microwave all the time and they really do come out awesome. If anyone wants to know, a way of making sure that your cake is cooked all the way through is sticking a toothpick or fork into it right in the center of the cake (because that's where it takes the longest time to cook) and if it comes out clean, your cake is cooked. Also, if you're using a microwave-safe dish like a casserole dish or something, line it with butter or oil and sprinkle a little flour on it and the cake won't stick to it.
This carrot cake looks awesome. I'm gonna try it soon.
It might have over baked in the microwave. Start with a shorter time when popping it in and add a few seconds at a time. Keep in mind that the cake is still steaming when you take it out of the microwave so it's still cooking. Hope that helps!
You can use a microwave safe cupcake mold for your microwave. Make the batter the same as you would and then divide into the mold. I can't say exact timing because I haven't tried it yet but give it a go!
Thank you Gemma! Would love to see more savoury things to bake in these gorgeous silicone molds, too! I saw the mug meals ones, but it's pretty hard to know the quantities when you want to make a bigger size
