With microwave baking, you do not
achieve the same look as with conventional baking, but you can cook
cakes and biscuits in a fraction of the time, and if you choose your
recipes carefully, you can still achieve delicious and eye-catching
results. Times are based on a 650-watt oven, and remember that some
recipes will continue to cook after they have been removed from the
oven, so do not over-bake. Microwave cakes do not always keep as well
as conventionally baked cakes.
