Ever heard of a cake that can be prepared in five minutes ad cooked in another five? Try this Microwave Vanilla Sponge Cake to believe us. It is the perfect sponge to use when you want to delight a surprise guest with a beautiful dessert. This eggless cake relies on curds and butter to achieve the ideal texture. However, remember that as the cake is cooked in the microwave, it tends to dry up a little if not used immediately. So, decorate and serve it as soon as it is ready, or cut it into cubes and team it up with ice-cream or custard to create many more magical desserts.
- Combine the curds and baking soda in a bowl and mix gently. Keep aside.
- Sieve the plain flour in a bowl and keep aside.
- Heat ¼ cup of water in a deep microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 1 minute, add the melted butter and sugar and mix well.

- Spoon the mixture into a 125 mm. (5") diameter greased, microwave safe dish and microwave on high for 4 minutes.
- Remove from the microwave and allow the cake to stand for approx. 5 minutes.
- Unmould and serve immediately.
