This is pure conjecture, as I've not actually tried doing this. Muffins are quickbreads, and as such, are fairly similar to cake. And there are a lot of recipes out there where people make cupcakes n a mug then microwave it. Serious Eat's directions for microwaving a cake in a mug are: Wipe inside rim of cup to remove excess batter. Microwave on High power ...

You can actually steam a lot of cakes. The basic idea is seal the cake pan tightly with foil (or even plastic wrap if your can handle the temperature) and then place it in your steamer insert/basket. I find it takes about 40 min for it to cook all the way through. Makes for a super moist and fluffy cake. Here’s a random example I found online. Paper in ...

If you have an option of 'convection' in microwave settings then you can adjust the temperature (in °C or °F) and hence use that as oven. Also cakes/muffins can be made in the same way, in microwave but then in microwave proof vessels. For that you may take a microwave proof container say a square plate, grease it and pour the batter. The plate should have a ...

The ratio is quite far off, I would say. 397 g of sweetened condensed milk (which has about 80% water) to 100 g syrup (which is about 20% water itself) makes for about 140 g sugar to 340 g water (the rest being other solids from the condensed milk), this is even wetter than the 3:2 ratio frequently used for slowly-evaporated stovetop caramel. The easiest ...

The problem with quick caramel recipes is that they aren't reliable due to the variations of water content in the butter and brands of condensed milk. Butter can vary between 15-30% water, if your butter has more water the caramel will be looser. The way to fix it it to simply cook it down longer. I personally think the microwave method is a bit gimmicky, ...

First off, to fix the caramel, I would recommend microwaving it a little bit longer. Start with an extra 30 seconds, then take a small amount and spread it on a cold plate to let it thicken and test it that way. Microwaves do vary, as does the moisture content of butter and even sweetened condensed milk, so the timing will naturally vary as well. The type of ...
