"I read a recipe a while back about a chocolate cake that was cooked in 3 minutes in the microwave. I didn't really believe it, but I tried it out and then proceeded to alter it to suit my own tastes because I thought it was too heavy and the texture was a bit wonky--if decent for instant chocolate fix at 12:00 a.m in the morning. Still, the unpleasant texture just became more pronounced as I experimented with vanilla variations. At last, here is my 5-minute lemon-poppy seed cake that rises beautifully and is light and airy-- unlike the chocolate cake." — AgnesPterry
