    Question:3-2-1 Cake

    3-2-1 Cake

    1 minute in the microwave for 1 little cake, but how many minutes if I wanted to do, say 6 little cakes?

    BTW - I made these for the first time today and used strawberry cake mix with the angelfood. Must admit that I was skeptical, but they were fantastic. This recipe is a keeper.

    It will take longer but it is not an easy calculation to make. You've made it once, so presumably you have an idea of what it looks like when it's close to done. What I would do is start with 3 minutes - if your microwave is like mine, it has a button for adding time - 10 or 15 seconds or so. If the cakes do not look done enough, add time in small increments.

    Your strawberry variation sounds great!

    Thanks for the suggestion. Just thought perhaps someone had already worked out the time. My Amana microwave is especially strong, it never takes as much time as others. I'm a scientist, so experimentation is my forte, so I'll proceed. The little cakes would make interesting desserts for guests by turning them out, bottom side up, and topping them with fruit or cream sauce. I'll bet chocolate ones, cooled, and topped with whipped cream and chocolate shavings. I'm even going to try layering them, half chocolate, half strawberry.

    All microwaves are different, so there would not be a one-size-fits-all answer. Even the age of the oven makes a difference.
