Cook’s tip: this traybake may also be cooked in a CircoTherm® oven at 160°C for 25-30 minutes or in a Multifunction oven with microwave C67P70 or C67PM0. Set to 180 Watts/160°C using Hot Air Plus for 15-18 minutes.

Cakes cooked in a microwave should look slightly moist but firm. If the cake looks dry it is overcooked. Always set the shortest time and check before increasing.
