Quick Microwave Cake

This quick soft and yummy cake is a great choice for busy mums – with only taking about 10 minutes to make from cracking the egg to serving on a plate – it’s a winner for those busy nights.


You could flavour in different ways such adding a few tablespoons of cocoa for a chocolate cake or couple of drops of lemon flavouring for a lemon cake.


The cake is soft, moist and airy and the added chocolate chips made the kids smile!IMG_4226

Put into the microwave and on high power cook for 8 minutes. ( My microwave is a 1000w – so you may need to increase the cooking time by a minute or two if you watts are lower)IMG_4226
