How to Make a Cake in a Microwave Oven

Let’s talk baking. It is no secret that it is possible to bake a small cake in a mug with your microwave, college students have been doing so in a desperate attempt to satisfy their sweet tooth for years. However, now it is possible to bake a full-sized cake in a microwave oven.

This new concept opens up a world of possibilities for clean and comfortable baking. To successfully make your cake and eat it too, you will need a microwave oven with convection cooking capabilities, such as the Sharp SMC1585BB model Black Stainless Steel Microwave, to properly bake the cake.

Since there is truly never a wrong time to enjoy a piece of cake, I believe it is the perfect addition to breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

One crucial step to successfully baking a cake in the microwave is to make sure that you have a microwave-safe container. We recommend using a good quality microwave-safe container, thick glassware, or Tupperware. It is important to remember that you cannot use a metal tin or pan during this baking process, as it will cause arching in your Sharp Convection Microwave Oven.
