My second Bake !

     I am a big addicted person for baked dishes. Nowadays, my passion towards Baking becoming like Addiction. Yes, reason behind is, am not familiar about my microwave usage/functionality, which we got as gift. That too, am having IFB with lot of in-built options. I am still under R&D and the manual which they have offered has NIL instruction about handling/preparation. So, am struggling to work with it. Most of the time, it is untouched :( You wont believe me, its going to be 1 year since we are owning it but till date, it have used it thrice :( I am much much eager to use it but i am HELPLESS. Eventhough i am novice in Baking somehow tried two bakes, one is Vanilla Tutti Fruity cake and another is Eggless Banana Dates sponge cake. He he... Nice name is it ? ;) Here comes, tentatively tried cake method for yur views


ALL YOU NEED:
Maida Flour 2 cups
Banana 2 Nos.
Dates 6 Nos.
Baking Powder Pinch
Vanilla Esscence 1 spoon
Powdered Sugar 1/2 cup
Butter 4/5 spoons

METHOD:
     Grind Banana and Dates together to a fine paster. Let it sit for a while. Take a wide bowl, Seive Maida. Add pinch of baking powder, powdered sugar to the Maida. Add butter and Vanilla Essence. Mix it well, until it becomes sticky. Now add grinded banana and dates mixture. Give hard stir until it mixes well with the Maida. Now grease the microwave pan with the better. Pour the mixture into the greased pan. Keep pan into the microwave and set the "Cakes" option and i kept the timer for 10 mins. Funny moment was, in that 10 mins, i opened and checked the pan for morethan 10 times. Bit scared whether it will get burned... :P

    After 10 mins, take out the pan and allow it to cool for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, just inserted a tooth pick and it came out clean. Whoa!! I am was overwhelmed and was just jumping from top to floor to taste my second bake. I am much much happy with the taste but if i know the proper procedure, i can get rid off my fear :( thats the drawback with my method.

Note:Selecting "Cake" option and setting timer, all these are done tentatively. As i dont know the exact procedure. :( (You know, how much i feel sad, when i type this line)
