Microwave Minicake Maker?
 
My wife found, in the dark recesses of a storage area in the kitchen, a
plastic minicake maker by Nupac. No instructions could be found. It's a
plastic, round, 9" diameter platform with 6 cupcake-sized holes each
2.5" in diameter on bottom. Each hole has 4 small holes on bottom, .25"
diameter. Has anyone instructions for the above for microwave baking?

My sister gave me one of those when i got my first apartment. I can't
recall ever using it . . . .

But I've seen it used. They do work. Like all microwave cookery that
doesn't include convection, the end product lacks browning and crispness,
but it does get 'baked'. Well, more like 'steamed' but it's cooked anyhow.

Cooks.com has a bunch of recipes. You should be able to extrapolate from
those how to modify your own recipes.

The pan you have is meant to be used with the little pleated paper cups.
There actually lots of microwave cupcake recipes on the web, just search
for "microwave cupcakes".

Here is one...

3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. cocoa
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsp. white vinegar
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Mix together dry ingredients. Add water, oil, vinegar and vanilla. Beat
until smooth. Pour batter, 1/2 full, into paper-lined microwave-safe muffin
pan or custard cups. Microwave on HIGH for 2-3 minutes until surface is
almost dry, turning pan at 1 minute intervals. Makes 10 cupcakes.

Cinnamon Frosting

3 Tbsp. butter; melted
1 1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Combine melted butter with 1/2 cup powdered sugar, cinnamon and salt. Beat
until light and fluffy. Continue beating and add remaining sugar
alternately with milk. Add vanilla and stir until smooth. Frosts 10
cupcakes.

I have a recipe for Cake in a Mug. It is made in a soup mug in the
microwave--the volume is equal to about 1 1/2 cupcakes. The baking
instructions say to bake at 30% power (defrost on my micro) for 2
minutes; then bake for 1 minute more on high. If the micro doesn't have
a turntable, the mug is rotated 1/2 turn each minute. Let cake cool for
1 to 2 minutes in the mug. I noticed in my microwave cookbook that
quick breads and cakes are all baked at 30% power first then finished
at high power.
