I wanted to try baking a cake for quite a long time. Though I owned a microwave, I was not so sure of the recipe the consistency and method I need to make it. But atlast, got a heart and mind to try it out and here is my first cake baking experience. But this time, I didnot actually get discouraged and started browsing through the various recipes over the net. Found a lot of method to make eggless cakes, but none told that it could be made in Microwave. Atlast found a recipe in NDTV Cook Books by Niru Gupta and followed it leaving out an ingredient or two which I was told by another friend of mine who bakes a lot. 

Ingredients:
Flour - Multipurpose flour or Maida - 2 cups 
Baking powder - 2 tsp
Butter - 1/2 cup
Powdered Sugar - 1/2 cup (I used icing sugar)
Milk - 1/2 cu
Vinegar - 2 tsp (I avoided it completely)
Vannila Essence - 1 tsp
Microwavable baking pan

Method
In a shallow mixing bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, butter and sugar. Add the vannila essence and mix well. Add the vinegar and milk little by little and beat the batter to a smooth paste. (I used hand held beater to beat the batter smooth). Transfer it to the greased baking pan and bake for a total of 8 mins (the baking time strictly depends upon the individual microwave). So before setting the baking time, check the user manual thoroughly.

Once done, let it set for another 2 mins. Slowly turn it upside down on a serving plate. You can decorate it as and how you like.
