The first step we will take to begin with our recipe for microwave cupcakes is Mix all ingredients that we have listed above in a deep bowl, except oil, milk and egg (which we will do in the next step). You will have to pour everything and mix to get the flavors to integrate and create a homogeneous base.


Now, as we have pointed out, we will have to find another container to be able to add the egg, milk and oil. We will mix everything to get them to join, at this time you can use an electric mixer to make the texture more spongy and the result is optimal.


Once we have both containers ready and mixed, it's time to join the contents and mix again so that all the ingredients for our cupcakes are integrated. At this time we advise you to use a electric rod or a mixer to make the texture more suitable so that our candy is spongy.


When we have the mixture ready, we will have to take the mold that we will use for our recipe. Keep in mind that as we are preparing a cupcake without oven, the mold has to be microwave safe since not all materials can be used in this appliance.

Here we will have to pour the mixture that we have prepared in the previous steps filling only 3/4 parts of the capacity of the mold because, if not, when it is cooking, the dough can grow and end up overflowing. So, to avoid it, fill in only a part of the mold and leave some room for the cupcake to grow.


When we have the molds ready, we will only have to put them in the microwave for a few 2 or 4 minutes at full power. Ideally, try 2 minutes first, take it out and prick it with a fork: if we see that it is still wet, it is because it is not completely done yet. When the fork comes out completely dry it will be when the cupcake is ready to enjoy.
