Microwave Carrot apple cake recipe – soft and spongy

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.
