Hi Madhura and everyone who has made this cake. I tried it today but unfortunately it turned out very hard like a sweet and hard naan and not at all spongy. I used exact same steps. My microwave is 1350 Watts. I cooked it in microwave mode(with highest temp at 900) for 3 mins first, but it was still raw, so i cooked for 2 more mins. It turned out to be very very hard. Also, when i was adding warm milk to sugar-creamcheese-butter mixture, water got separated and it seems like something wrong was there. I cross-checked milk was all fine. I dont think it has anything to do with the unfavorable results. As I beated this mixture very well with a beater. Please help asap. I need to make pineapple pastry today.

Dear Madhuri, you are supposed to cook this in the Microwave mode and not on convection mode. Press on the "Microwave" once , and it shows the highest power. Cook on this mode for 4 mints according to this recipe. Or it is better you study the users' manual well. happy cooking grin

Thankz a lot madhuri...i tried this cake today,i got really a wonderful sponge cake. <br/>Really i wonder how a microwave can give such a soft and smooth cake...i used yoghurt instead of cheese,and the cake took 8mins to cook in my 900W oven.
