Micro Cake Time Variation is a special feature on select Pampered Chef products that allows you to easily adjust the cooking time for smaller cakes, such as mug cakes or single-serving cakes.
Currently, our Small Batter Bowl, Measure-All® Cup, and Measure, Mix & Pour® products all feature Micro Cake Time Variation.
Simply follow the recipe instructions for your cake mix, and then use the conversion chart provided on the product packaging to adjust the cooking time for your desired cake size. For example, if your recipe calls for a 9-inch round cake but you are using the Small Batter Bowl, you would reduce the cooking time by 25%.
We recommend using Micro Cake Time Variation only for cake mixes or recipes that are specifically designed for smaller cakes. It is not recommended for traditional cake recipes as the baking time and temperature may vary significantly.
No, just follow the recipe and use the conversion chart provided on the product packaging to adjust the cooking time. However, we do recommend checking the cake for doneness a few minutes before the adjusted cooking time is up, as baking times can vary depending on your oven and altitude.
