These little dishes are so much fun. They were originally designed as microwave omelette cookers.
Super easy, whisk up an egg (or two), add in some seasonings, cheese, diced veggies; then put it in the microwave for 60-90 seconds.
The cone in the center helps spread the heat out evenly, and it also makes an egg fit perfectly on a bagel. This morning’s combo was 1 egg, chopped spinach, and shredded cheese. I was out of bagels today, and my English muffin still did the trick.
One customer recently said that she uses her’s as mini-bundt pans. I thought I’d give it a try, so I made a smaller batch of my famous banana bread batter and put it in the little pot.
My regular sized banana bread calls for 55-65 minutes in the oven at 350F. I wasn’t sure how long the smaller batch would take, so I started the timer at 20 minutes and checked every 5. All told it was done at 30 minutes.
Get creative! Other cakes could be modified for these cute little dishes. I’d love to do a almond-poppyseed bundt cake with a lemon icing drizzle.

Fun story, when I was a little kid, probably around 8 years old, I really wanted to make my single mom a special cake for her birthday. I rode my bike to the convenience store, bought a microwaveable chocolate cake mix, it even came with a little disposable baking dish. I mis-read the instructions and instead of microwaving it for 3-5 minutes, I did it for 35 minutes! It was a hockey puck. The best part of the story? I still frosted it. She’s a good mom, but she did not try to eat it. I’ve come a long way in my “kitchen chops” since that rock-hard cake.
