You don’t always need an oven to bake your favourite sweet, delicious recipes. Baking in your microwave may not always be your first choice, but it’s ideal for when you’re short on time or just don’t have the patience to wait for something to bake in the oven. Sometimes you’re in the mood for a dessert and you want it now, and that’s where quick microwave desserts come in! From single serve cakes, to cookies, puddings, crisps and more, you can easily make a wide range of desserts in your handy microwave!

3 Things To Know Before Baking in Your Microwave

1. Know Your Microwave
There are two types of microwaves – regular microwaves and convection microwaves, and knowing which one you have is essential for proper baking. For regular microwaves, you must make sure to use microwave safe containers, such as ceramic or stoneware baking dishes. These are very versatile and are often nice enough to serve your guests! With convection microwaves, you can use regular cake tins and glassware. These microwaves work like ovens, using a fan to force air movement and heat up the interior to cook food from the inside out.

2. Stock Up on Microwave Safe Dishes
If you’re going to be baking in your microwave, you can’t just use anything. Microwave-safe dishes such as ramekins, mugs, and bowls are essential for microwave baking. Microwave-safe material resists heat and its composition allows its rays to pass through without affecting the appliance and vessel.

3. Enjoy Immediately!
Microwave baking is best enjoyed straight away. Unlike classic oven baking that can be stored away and saved for later, your microwave treat should be eaten immediately once it’s at an edible temperature (make sure not to burn your mouth!). Microwave desserts are also typically one to two person servings so it makes sense to eat them right when they come out of the microwave, whereas desserts made in the oven are usually bigger batches and can be saved.
