Microwave cake in oval baker?

Dec 14, 2005
I know that somebody mentioned doing microwave cakes in the deep dish pie plate. Would it work in the oval baker?

If I looked it up correctly, the deep dish pie plate holds six cups. The oval baker holds seven cups. So, I don't think that I should be worried about it overflowing, but would it cook right?

Would the hazelnut chocolate cake work in that pan?

What do you think?

I'm brand new, so I'm really clueless here. One of my first hosts mentioned that she has the oval baker, but doesn't know what to do with it. She tried to just give it to me, but I'd rather show her some recipes to make in it. I'm already doing the family burrito, so she wants something sweet. I'm trying to keep it simple because all I have is the starter kit and the large micro cooker.

Sorry that this rambles.


Because the hazelnut cake needs to be inverted, I don't think it would be the best choice for the oval baker. (It is really designed to be a tall cake...) BUT, I think some of the skillet cake recipes will definately work. At my first party, the consultant made the molten skillet brownie in the oval baker and it was fabulous. I would probably reduce the amount of water in the recipe slightly, as it was very runny. But once you shake the powdered sugar on it, it comes out beautiful. Maybe try the turtle fudge cake, too.

Deep Dish Baker

I made a microwave cake in the DDB and it turned out great, but the entire mix was TOO much for the baker to hold! It overflowed a bit on me, but turned out GREAT! It did take a little longer to cook then the fluted stone. I tried the fluted stone on Saturday while my in-laws were visting and it couldn't turn in my microwave and did cook so well since my microwave is VERY SMALL!

cake gets stuck!

I have made the strawberry cheesecake in the fluted pan twice now. Both times the cake has stuck. I did spray the pan first with Baker's Joy. Any suggestions?

Really spray your fluted pan well, and invert it immediately when it comes out of the microwave.
