    Microwave cake

    [font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]3 eggs (separated)
    ½ cup castor sugar
    1 tsp vanilla essence
    2/3 cup cornflour/ cornstarch
    1 tbsp refined flour (maida)
    1 ½ tbsp cocoa powder
    1 tsp baking powder
    A pinch of salt

    For garnish
    1 cup whipped cream
    A few tinned cherries

    Beat the egg whites. Gradually beat in sugar, a little at a time, then continue to beat until stiff. Add egg yolks and vanilla essence and beat until combined.

    Sift together cornflour, refined flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and a pinch of salt. Fold in the flour mixture into the egg mixture with a light hand.

    Pour batter into a microwave cake container. Bake at Micro HIGH (100%) for three minutes. If it is not done, then bake for a further 30 seconds and check. Check every 30 seconds till the cake is fully baked. Take it out of the oven and transfer onto a wire rack to cool.

    Decorate cake with whipped cream and cherries. You can also sprinkle some instant coffee over the cake while it is still a little hot. Note: 700 watt microwave ovens will only need two and a half minutes.600-650 watt microwave ovens will need three minutes.
