Hey everyone! I am making the Strawberry cake and have had the WORST LUCK with microwave cakes and don't ever want to make one again. So, does anyone know how long I should bake the cake in the oven? My recruiter thought she had the directions for oven use but she can't seen to find it. Could you guys please help me??

Also~~What should the top look like when it's done and how long should I wait to flip it over?

Thanks in Advance!

This is what I have:

Strawberry Cheesecake Microwave Cake
1 strawberry cake mix
(if you can't find strawberry ~Pillsbury and Betty Crocker makes one ~ you can use white, add red food color, not much, like one drop and add an extract tsp of strawberry extract ~~ BUT the strawberry cake mix is prettier but it has pink cake with red speckles, plus you're putting in the white chips~very pretty!)
1 tsp. strawberry extract
½ cup white chocolate chips
1 (3 oz. box) cheesecake pudding mix
16 oz. sour cream
½ cup oil
3 eggs
Garnish: whipped topping and fresh Strawberry fans.

Five Simple steps to success:
1. Spray your pan lightly and dust with flour (works best with Baker's Joy).
2. Whisk eggs and pudding mix together in Classic Batter Bowl.
3. Add remaining ingredients, blending well with Mix N' Scraper.
4. Drop batter into Fluted pan and microwave on high 12-14 minutes.
1. (Watch your cake after 10 minutes if you microwave runs hot.) Works best if your have a turntable in your microwave. If not, rotate every 4-5 minutes.
5. Invert cakes immediately, but leave pan over the cake for 10 minutes. Cool. Garnish (Flour Sugar Shaker filled with powdered sugar, fresh strawberry fans made with your Egg Slicer Plus, fresh mints snipped with your Kitchen Shears) as desired.

Finishing touch directions:
Add powdered sugar using Flour Sugar Shaker.

Then it's time for the fresh strawberries (I do about 6...more if you want)...pull out the Egg Slicer Plus and make strawberry fans...put them at the base of the cake.

Lastly, I get out my washed fresh mint leaves and Kitchen Shears. Snip off a few to lace in between the strawberry fans....it ends up looking pretty darn good!...If you really want to get fancy...use your EAD filled with Cool Whip or a cream cheese mixture...pipe it at the base before you put the strawberry fans and mint leaves.

Everything I have with that recipe is for a microwave cake. That is a great recipe to show as a microwave cake too. Are you really swearing off microwave cakes? :eek: I have HWC documents with recipes on them if you want me to post them. Maybe there would be another pink cake on them you could use. The only other thing I could think of is baking it at a regular cake temp and time and checking it often to make sure it doesn't over bake.

Does anyone know if this cake can be cooked in the Rice Cooker Plus? Also, are there any photos of the cake out there? I'd like to make this my recipe of the month for February, it being Valentines and all.

Thanks in advance, Linda

A cake that cooks for 50-55 minutes in the oven takes about 13 minutes in the microwave so I would guess (and it's a guess mind you) that a cake that takes about 12-14 minutes in the microwave would take about 50-55 minutes in the oven.

Cook it at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, test with cake tester and recheck every 5 minutes or so.
