    If there is no oven, only a microwave... what recipe?

    This show was going to be a Kitchen Show at the hosts house, but she wasn't able to get everyone there at the same time, so I suggested the office party at lunch time.
    She had already chosen the Hot Pizza Dip and Taffy Apple Pizza for the kitchen show... I've done the taffy apple pizza many many times, so I could do that real quick... but the pizza dip... has anyone done this in the micorwave? if I toast the bread ahead of time, then microwave the dip? Is it any good? or should I just make something different? any suggestions?

    Yep the pizza dip works fine in the microwave. Do you have the stoneware fluted pan? You can make a cake in there in the microwave in 13 minutes. If you don't have one, is there someone you can borrow it from? This really impresses people! :)

    I do have the fluted stone, and I've made it a few times, at a show earlier this month in fact... my husband doesn't think it is the best. PC has so many wonderful recipes, we are spoiled now! :p What is your favorite micro cake? what toppings do you add to it? carmel, cool whip, etc? It isn't so pretty, so you have to add something to it so the "spongy look" is covered up.

    How long do you micro the pizza dip?

    Microwave Cakes

    There are a few different ways that I like to do a chocolate cake. :p

    1. Turtle Fudge...devil's food cake mix, 1 cup chocolate morsals, 3 eggs, and 16 oz sour cream. Combine all ingredients "bake" in fluted stone for 13 minutes w/ a turntable in the microwave. When 13 minutes are up, let stand for about 10 min. flip out and drizzle with caramel ice cream topping (the squeeze bottle) and chopped pecans (optional).

    2. Frosted Chocolate Cake...mix cake per package directions, put in fluted stone, now dollop your chocolate frosting (not the whipped or pourable topping...it is not heavy enough and it will boil out all over the microwave :( ) directly on top of the cake mix in the stone. When done "baking" for 13 minutes, let stand for about 10 min. and flip out onto a serving platter with a small lip on it. When you flip it out...(the frosting will have gone to the bottom of the stone during cook time) you will have a frosted chocolate cake!

    Hope this gives you a few ideas...this always gets the OOOHHH AAAHHH effect at my shows! I have sold a lot of stones doing these recipes! :D
