    Dear Senorita,
    Please write if you want to try cakes in regular oven. In that case, please refer to the thread on cakes & bakes.
    In MW, if there is convection in your MW, follow the same procedure.
    If it is just MW, cook on Hi for 6-8 mts depending on the size of the bowl.
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Dear Marina,
    If you have Samsung like mine, you must bake in the Convection mode. There is no High or Medium. Preheat to 190 deg C & time for 15 mts. Bake for 5 more mts, if necessary.
    Love,
    Chithra.
