How to bake a biscuit in a microwave oven?
Microwave ovens today arebelonging to almost every kitchen. But most housewives use this miracle of kitchen appliances only for heating food and for defrosting food. But in the microwave it is quite possible to prepare high-grade dishes and even to bake cupcakes and cakes. And the food in the microwave oven is being cooked extraordinarily quickly, which is important for working people.
To prepare a biscuit in a microwave oven, the simplest version of the stove, without convection and grilling, will do. But for baking to be successful, it is necessary to take into account some nuances.
Any pastry cooked in a microwave oven is nothas a ruddy crust. On taste it is not reflected, but it looks like this cupcake is not very attractive, too pale. To eliminate this drawback, it is worth "tinting" the dough. For example, add cocoa powder when mixing and prepare a chocolate biscuit in a microwave oven. You can add orange peel in the dough or use the glaze, covering it with already prepared and cooled baked goods.
It is important to remember that fat and sugar are very susceptibleto microwave radiation. Therefore, if the biscuit recipe was used in a microwave oven, which contains oil, then such baking will be cooked faster than the one prepared according to the classic recipe. As for sugar, it is very important to make sure that during the whipping process the crystals of sugar completely dissolve. Otherwise, undissolved crystals during baking can be charred.
To prepare a biscuit in a microwave oven, you canuse this recipe: take 3 eggs and beat them together with six tablespoons of sugar to a foam, then 4-5 spoons of milk, 6 spoonfuls of vegetable oil and 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder are added to the lush mass. For the splendor of a biscuit, you need to add a batch of baking powder to the mass. Mix everything well and start adding flour, it needs about 12 spoons, but this is only an approximate amount, you need to orient yourself to the consistency of the dough, which should be somewhat more liquid than for baking pancakes. If you use a dough of the usual consistency, then the biscuit in the microwave will turn out to be excessively dry.
For baking in a microwave oven, you should useround shapes, as when using rectangular biscuits and other dough products, the corners dry out. The ideal option - a shape with a hole in the middle, that is, a cake. If you do not have one, then you can take an ordinary pan intended for cooking in a microwave oven and put a glass filled with water in its center.
Test readiness should be checked by the samein the same way as when baking in the oven. That is, you need to pierce the pie with a wooden toothpick and, if the wand turns dry, you can consider baking ready. An important point: to check the readiness of biscuit when baking in a microwave is not in the center of the shape, but deviating from the central point a distance equal to about a quarter of the diameter. If there are no dough marks on the toothpick, it is necessary to turn off the heating and leave the baking in the oven for another 5-7 minutes. During the stand, the baking process will continue, so the middle of the pie will have time to "reach", and the biscuit itself will not be overdried.
The baking time in the microwave depends on thepower. Since the power of different models of microwave ovens is different, you should read the recommendations written in the instructions. Naturally, the more power, the faster the baking will be prepared.
Another factor that depends on the baking time is the size of the portion. The more dough is cooked, the longer the biscuit will be baked.
In the microwave you can cook not only the usualbiscuit, but also a variety of charlottes. To do this, put the apples on the bottom of the form, cut into thin slices and pour them into the dough. Similarly, you can prepare a biscuit with bananas, pears or other fruits.
Cooked in the microwave biscuit cakeyou can serve just like that, but you can make a real cake out of it. For this, the cooled biscuit should be cut into two or three cakes (depending on the height), soak them with syrup and grease with any cream. You can decorate the cake the way fantasy tells.
