Rum Cake: From the Inverter Microwave Recipe Page


From the Virtual Kitchen! Baked in the Panasonic Inverter Microwave. I admit I cheated. You can "microwave" this cake in minutes. But I chose the Bake Option to test it out, which made me wait an additional 40 minutes before it was done! Still, I think it's cool I can BAKE A CAKE in my Panasonic microwave.

TASTE: Someone commented I didn't talk about taste. LOL! That's because I wanted the rum to really sink in. But it came out GREAT. My husband said it was the best rum cake he ever tasted. :woot: :woot:
