Nuked Cake
Microwave mini cakes seem to be all the rage right now. Understandable. We don't plan on touching our oven till October. But how do they taste? Has anyone made cake in their microwave? How's the texture? We're going to give this recipe from Romanian blog Papa Bun a shot. If the cake doesn't turn out, at least we got a good laugh out of the translated blog!

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
