10 Minute Strawberry Microwave Cake Recipe

Can you imagine spending only 10 minutes to make and bake a cake? I made a cake in my microwave using the Tupperware (tm) round 6 1/4 cup Heat N Serve Container! This cake was really easy to make and surprisingly, it was really moist!

10 Minute Strawberry Cake Recipe

1 (9 oz.) pkg. White Cake Mix
1 egg
1/2 c. water
1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
1 can prepared cream cheese frosting

Spray a 6 1/4 cup Heat 'N Serve (tm) container with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside. Mix cake mix, water, and egg. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed. Pour cake mix into Heat 'N Serve (tm) container and microwave on high 10 minutes turning the container 1/4 turn every 2 minutes. Allow cake to cool slightly, then turn it out onto an Impressions (tm) luncheon plate. With a Chef Series (tm) 8 1/4" bread knife, slice the cake in half horizontally and allow to cool completely. When the cake has cooled spread a thick layer of frosting in the middle and lay half the strawberries on top. Place the top layer back on the cake and frost it with the rest of the frosting. Decorate with the remaining sliced strawberries and serve immediately.

It doesn't get easier than that! I've never made a cake in the microwave either.

This is perfect for those times when you need a quick dessert. I like that.

yup! I was pleasantly surprised at how moist it turned out! I will definately be experimenting with baking more cakes in the old nuker!

A microwave cake? Very interesting and those strawberries look refreshing.
