Microwave cakes!

I wasn't going for looks here but I am sure that you will do better. I inverted them onto a plate. Lines are from the parchment paper. 

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil
1 cup milk
2 tsp lemon
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 cup flour

Place in parchment paper inside of microwave pan, 2/3rds of the way,  and microwave approximately 4-6 minutes. You will see it rise and drop again. That's okay. Stick toothpick in it and if it's clean it is done. Make some syrup or icing if you'd like. (Heavy cream and strawberries, chocolate melted in heavy cream, etc.)

VARIATION: Add instant coffee and/or cocoa. I did and it was wonderful. Note: Not too much instant coffee or it will have a slight "burned" taste. Also, parchment paper allows you to invert it onto a plate easier and I used one piece for all three cakes. You can peel it right off. 

Experiment with the recipe and enjoy!!!! ~ Essie
