What Pans Should I Use in the Microwave Oven?

This cake can be stored at room temperature for up to four days, in a cling wrap or a reusable container. If you want to freeze and use it for a special occasion, this cake freezes very well and can later be reheated in the best microwave oven in Pakistan and served to the guests.

Grease your cake pan with butter to ensure that the cake does not stick to it.
In a bowl, combine all your wet ingredients.
Cream together sugar and eggs, add butter, milk, and vanilla essence as well.
In a separate bowl, mix all the dry ingredients.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones and use your spatula to fold in the mixture.
Pour in the cake pan and let it cook in the microwave oven for 2 to 2 and a half minutes or until the cake separated from the pan and is firm from the middle.
Serve hot with your favorite toppings, when done.
