Microwave 1-2-3 cake is a quick and easy sweet cake recipe made in the microwave. This recipe is quite forgiving in proportions: careful measurement is not required.




  1. Beat the egg until smooth.
  2. Add the honey and milk and mix well.
  3. Add the breadcrumbs and mix until uniform.
  4. Let the mixture sit for a few minutes, to allow the breadcrumbs to absorb the moisture.
  5. Pour the mixture into a small silicone mold (e.g. Dollar store loaf pan).
  6. Microwave on high for 4 minutes or a little after it stops rising.
  7. Allow to cool a little; tip out onto a plate if desired.
  8. Top with more maple syrup or honey, if desired.

Notes, tips, and variations

  • Tip: coat the measuring spoon with oil before putting the honey in, so that it slides off easily and doesn't stick to the spoon.
