Hi Gemma..can you tell me pls why my cake become hard I tried on microwave 😭😭
Munmun (2 months ago)
Gemma Stafford thank you for your reply
Gemma Stafford (2 months ago)
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 :)
Shela Acedillo (2 months ago)
Hi gemma, can I do baking in the microwave even though my microwave is not a convection? Thank you!
Simran Roy (2 months ago)
Hi Gemma, I tried your carrot cake today and it turned out really well. Took it to a friend's gathering and they all enjoyed. Your name was echoing in the room for long 🌞
Simran Roy (2 months ago)
Gemma Stafford I just uploaded the one pic I had. It took seconds for the cake to finish so couldn't take more pics 😋
Gemma Stafford (2 months ago)
Lovely to hear that you enjoyed it! Please send photos if you have any. You can post them on my website recipe page: https://www.biggerbolderbaking.com/microwave-carrot-cake/

Shubhra Singh (3 months ago)
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 months 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.

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 (3 months 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/

Linda Romano (3 months 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 (3 months ago)

wcody777 (3 months 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 (3 months ago)
"You have to have cream cheese frosting when it comes to carrot cake, it's like the law." Yes! I totally agree!
1stepcl0ser (3 months 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?

Cindy Cadichon (3 months ago)
What if its 1500 watts
Cindy Cadichon (3 months ago)
Gemma Stafford Thank you very much😀
Gemma Stafford (3 months 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 (3 months ago)
Seriosly! !!! Can you acually say HOW MUCH you put in these things?????
Gemma Stafford (3 months 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 (3 months 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 (3 months ago)
Great tips!
Joshua lever (3 months ago)

Shameera Noushad (3 months ago)
Hi gemma, loved ur recipe but can i make this cake without the frosting?please reply
Shameera Noushad (3 months ago)
Thanks for the reply! love you gemma
Gemma Stafford (3 months ago)
You can! Keep in mind that frosting also acts as a barrier for the cake to keep it from drying out. :)
Muhammad Souman (3 months ago)
Make center filled cupcakes like chocolate, strawberry, caramel, etc fillings baked inside
Shivali Dave (3 months 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 (3 months 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 (3 months 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 (3 months ago)
you should do a Matcha one
Emma D (3 months 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?

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!
