When I was unable to use my oven for a period of time, I looked for ways to make my favourite baking recipes using the microwave. The following recipe was found on the Nestle Milkmaid website and I adapted it to improve the texture and taste. Unlike many other eggless cakes, which taste rather bland, this is sweet and also often I find that because the egg is left out, the cake does not rise as much or is not as light or spongy as it could. However, here the aerated sode makes up for and the cake rises as much as any other cake made with eggs, sometimes ever more so make sure that your cake tin is the correct size or it will run over while baking, as mine did once when the tin was too small. If suitably decorated this delicious cake could be used for many special occasions.
