How to bake a cake in Microwave?

Microwave is now part of many households, whereas conventional oven is still not a choice for some rural and even urban areas. This recipe became very handy during 2020 when a lot of people are limited by choices to enjoy everyday items.

Types of Oven

Convection / Non Convection

Simply an oven which has convection to transfer the heat and evenly distribute it around the food. It happens when the heat is passing through a heating element and a fan circulates the air inside the oven.

As Non-Convection the fan and convection is not part of it.

In these ovens, the Preheating of the oven is a necessary step for almost all baking recipes.

Microwave

Microwave oven on other hand uses electromagnetic energy, electromagnetic waves that heat up the food in the appliance and do not have any mechanism for Pre Heating.

To Bake in Microwave ovens, make sure that no aluminium is used at all. Instead, use microwave-safe dishware.

Why This Recipe?

After trying various microwave related recipes, the core problems which I faced were

  • Uncooked from inside
  • The raw smell of eggs
  • or Dense if overcooked

Out of the above three, the easiest target was to cover the unpleasant smell of eggs, so here comes the secret ingredient that was a real game-changer.

Magic of Orange Zest

Orange zest was a real game-changer, not only it covered the smell instead it adds great and rich taste which leaves a pleasant after-effect.

Buttermilk & Butter

Adding fuel to fire, the buttermilk and butter took away the problem of being uncooked from inside and instead of getting dense it came out soft and moist.
