I wanted to bake a cake and I have a microwave oven. Can someone please let me know if I can bake a cake in it and how?
You certainly can prepare cake-like foodstuff in the microwave. One such application is a sponge cake. These are quick and easy, though you'll be hard-pressed to make something that's not just a poor substitute for the real thing.
That being said, cook one of these up and drop it on a plate with some fresh fruit and maybe some whipped cream and you'll have an instant dessert.
