I also make both convection and microwave cake, but i never understand why is baking more preferred in oven or convection? can u explain!
Gemma Stafford (2 days ago)
Baking is traditionally done in an oven while micro-baking is a bit newer. I like how the microwave steams a cake but you do need an oven for some recipes.

Andrea G (15 days ago)
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
Gemma Stafford (13 days ago)
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/
Jyotsna Mali (15 days ago)

Gemma Stafford (13 days ago)
You absolutely can :)
Linda Romano (17 days ago)
Gemma, looking at both carrot cakes you've made. I know this microwave one can be oven baked. Could I use a 10" springform pan and do 2 layers instead? How would I need to adjust the bake time? Thx
Jax Coc (17 days ago)
Hi Gemma!! can the cinnamon be replaced with another ingridient?? because im gonna make this for my mum and we dont have cinnamon.

wcody777 (20 days ago)
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.
Cool DIYS (20 days ago)
"You have to have cream cheese frosting when it comes to carrot cake, it's like the law." Yes! I totally agree!
1stepcl0ser (20 days ago)
And in the oven you put int the first one for 40 minutes, then the next for 40 minutes and again the last one for 40 minutes?
Joshua lever (20 days ago)

Guerda Cadichon (20 days ago)
What if its 1500 watts
Guerda Cadichon (20 days ago)
Gemma Stafford Thank you very much😀
Gemma Stafford (20 days ago)
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 Schmidt (21 days ago)
Seriosly! !!! Can you acually say HOW MUCH you put in these things?????
Gemma Stafford (20 days ago)
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.
Lida George (21 days ago)
👍👍
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.
Gemma Stafford thanks! ^_^
Gemma Stafford (21 days ago)
Great tips!
Joshua lever (21 days ago)
can i leave out the vanilla and can i add chcolate chips to the carrot cake

Shameera Noushad (23 days ago)
Hi gemma, loved ur recipe but can i make this cake without the frosting?please reply
Shameera Noushad (22 days ago)
Thanks for the reply! love you gemma
Gemma Stafford (22 days ago)
You can! Keep in mind that frosting also acts as a barrier for the cake to keep it from drying out. :)
Muhammad Souman (23 days ago)
Make center filled cupcakes like chocolate, strawberry, caramel, etc fillings baked inside
Shivali Dave (23 days ago)
Also when you say let them totally cool, do you mean in the mold? Or do you remove them and let them cool on say a cooling rack?
Shivali Dave (23 days ago)
I love this concept but I tried your red velvet microwave cake and I found it to be dry. Any though how that might have happened?
Gemma Stafford (22 days ago)
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!
MF Rodea (23 days ago)
you should do a Matcha one
Emma D (23 days ago)
This looks so amazing! Carrot cake is one of my favourite cakes! Just wondering though, I have some silicone muffin tins, do you think I could use this recipe to make muffins in the microwave?

Absolutely Emma! :)

I don't like carrot cake because it tastes like carrot halwa, but I am looking forward to adding pineapple and coconut hoping it makes the cake taste a bit different.

Hi can i ask a question how to make a cupcake in a microwave?
Gemma Stafford (23 days ago)
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!
Mishti Sagothia (24 days ago)
Amazing recipe!! Can u plzz do some eggless cupcakes ?

I'll try to find some, Mishti :) I have an egg substitution chart on BiggerBolderBaking.com that makes many of my recipes eggless!

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

I'll keep them coming, Yasmine! Thank you :)

Érika Endo Kokubun (24 days ago)
Looks amazing!! One thing I like to make when baking carrot cakes is to blend the carrots with the oil, eggs and sugar! So it becomes a liquid and the carrot flavour is really present in the batter 😊
Gemma Stafford (23 days ago)
Great tip! Thank you, Érika :)
Ali Kayani (24 days ago)

I feel like as you add pineapple to a carrot cake, you might as well jump right to making a hummingbird cake. Which is a phenomenally delicious cake. As is carrot cake.
Sona Jahangir (24 days ago)
I'm an Indian and we usually makes sweets with carrots but I have never tried cake recipe with carrots. I am sure that I am gonna try this. Every ingredient is available in India. Thank you so much for sharing this video Ma'am.😊

You could probably substitute pineapple for applesauce 😘
Gemma Stafford (23 days ago)
I have other carrot cake recipes on BiggerBolderBaking.com that omit pineapple :)
Janet Cabrera (24 days ago)
Ayyyy que rico 😋 just soooo gooood
Wolf Kat (24 days ago)
This might be too late to ask and not much to do with the video but can you use other types of cheeses instead of cheddar cheese in the mug meals that require it?
Gemma Stafford (23 days ago)
Absolutely! Feel free to choose your own :)
