I didn't like this cake. I over cooked it at 5 minutes. It became crusty and dry once cooled. It also didn't really have much flavor.

Cooked for only 5 mins in our 1100w microwave and still turned out hard and chewy. Was quick and easy to make, and tastes good, but will try for 3 mins next time.

Great recipe to whip up a cake quickly. Once I had to take two cakes to work for a morning tea and I had both made in the morning in 15 mins - amazing. Just used this recipe again to say Thanks to a neighbour for some fruit. Try it - you won't be disappointed.

One warning - Don't overcook it, or it will be dry. It took 7 mins in our old 800 watt microwave, and takes 5 mins in our new 1100 watt microwave.

Also - using baking paper in the tin, plus covering it with clingfilm during cooking helps retain moisture plus get it out more easily. Enjoy!
