This is absolutely, 100% the best microwave cake I have eaten in my life.* It takes 5 minutes to throw together and it tastes like sugar cookies and the texture is like REAL CAKE. I was watching Masterchef AU last night and Matt Preston was making a microwave sponge cake that involved passionfruit pulp for the liquid in the recipe
. I was instantly excited. It looked great, and I needed it!
But there were problems: how much liquid is one passionfruit? what's the right amount of flour and baking powder if I'm not using self rising flour? how do I convert all the measurements so US readers will find it easy to make?
so I stayed up and experimented and then - PROBLEMS SOLVED
*Full disclosure: I am pretty much an expert in microwave sweets. I swear I've spent about a fourth of my adult life up late and making questionable food decisions.
