Microwave Carrot apple cake recipe - soft and spongy

carrot apple microwave cake
I read in the internet (as well as many blogs) that cakes come out very beautiful using a microwave oven. Though it may not turn brown as in the convection oven , yet they are moist and spongy. And as most of the times the cakes are frosted , the browning really doesn't matter much.
So I thought of giving it a try. It did come out well. I liked the colour of the cake due to the carrots added , that I did not feel like decorating the cake in any other way.

All purpose flour - 1 cup
Butter - 1 cup
sugar- 1 cup
baking powder- 1tsp
eggs-3 nos
vanilla essense-1tsp
Grated carrot- 1/2 cup
grated apple-1/2 cup

Sieve the flour and baking powder.Add sugar,vanilla essence and butter and beat the mixture well. You can add few drops of milk. Then add the eggs one by one and beat the mixture properly. Stir in the carrots and apple.Pour the cake batter in a greased microwave bowl. Microwave in high for 10 minutes. Check by inserting a knife if it comes out clean. Else microwave for further 1 or 2 minutes accordingly.
