6. Cook Sweet Corn
For simple and delicious corn-on-the-cob, simply wrap an ear of shucked corn in a damp paper towel and place on a microwaveable plate. Cook on high for 5 minutes, slather with some of that butter you just softened, and enjoy.
5. Bake Desserts
Why heat up your oven when you can quickly and easily bake desserts right in your microwave? From family-sized treats like Mom on Time Out’s recipe for Microwave Lemon Bars to cake-in-a-cup desserts for one, your microwave has you covered. Ree Drummond has a recipe for Chocolate Cake in a Mug that bakes flour, sugar, cocoa powder, milk, and chocolate chips into a tasty treat in only minutes.
4. Scramble Eggs
Scrambling up a batch of eggs is as easy coating a microwaveable mug with cooking spray and adding a beaten egg. The Incredible Egg suggests beating 2 eggs with 2 tablespoons of milk. Cook on high for 45 seconds. If needed, you can add an additional 45 seconds of cooking time.Related: Why Most Countries Don’t Refrigerate Eggs
