These are basic steps on how to bake cupcakes using just a microwave oven plus tips on making a frosting. Enjoy!

Cupcake Ingredients
(Good for 12 cupcakes)
  • Flour- 10tbsp
  • Coco powder - 3tbsp
  • Baking powder - 2 tsp
  • Baking soda - a pinch
  • Condensed milk - 6 tbsp
  • Melted butter- 5 tbsp
  • Milk - 8 tbsp
  • Chocolate chunks - a fistful

1)Stir together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and baking soda in a microwaveable tray. I am using the red tray below. It can be used in a microwave oven and in an oven toaster.

2) Add condensed milk, melted butter and milk and mix well. Here, I just used a large bowl and a fork to mix. The end texture should look like the 2nd pic below. 

3) Add chocolate chunks and microwave at medium high for about 3 minutes. It should look like the one below. 


  • 1pack butter (8oz)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar (you can adjust this depending on the sweetness that you like)
  • 3 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
1) Mix cornstarch with milk until dissolved. Put in a medium heat pan and stir until it becomes a thickened milk paste as shown below. (This is optional. You only do this if you do not want your cupcakes frosting to be too much sweet. Personally, I prefer not to do this. Instead, I will just add cocoa to my buttercream to lessen its sweetness.)

2) In another mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to mix butter and powdered sugar. Add vanilla for flavoring. 

3) Add the milk paste and mix until it looks like the one below. 

4) Pipe the frosting into the cupcake. You can add some sprinkles or you can add cocoa to its frosting to make a chocolate buttercream frosting. Serve.

  2. There are multiple types of microwaves that you can choose from. These different microwaves are created in different ways; some of them are simply to change the aesthetic view of the microwave, whereas others aim to change how the microwave ovens work.Maytag Appliance Repair
