To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

The Medium Deep Dish


For the cake

  • 1 cup (120g) all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup (60g) brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup (100g) zucchini, grated (about 1 small zucchini)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup (60g) unsalted butter, melted
  • ½ cup (120ml) water
  • Non-stick cooking spray

For the glaze

  • ½ cup (50g) powdered sugar
  • Lemon juice


  1. For the cake: Coat the inside of the Anyday dish with cooking spray. Cut out a piece of parchment paper and fit it into the bottom of the bowl.
  2. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, lemon zest, and salt and mix well. Add grated zucchini, vanilla, butter, and water and mix until all ingredients are combined.
  3. Pour batter into the prepared Anyday dish. Cook in the microwave uncovered for  7-8 minutes, or until the bread is bouncy to the touch and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  4. Allow the loaf to rest in the Anyday dish for 1 minute. Run a knife around the edges of the dish to loosen. Place a flat plate on the bowl and carefully flip the vessel to unmold the bread. Discard parchment paper.
  5. For the glaze: Mix powdered sugar and enough lemon juice to achieve the desired consistency.
  6. Drizzle bread with glaze and serve. Bread will be kept in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Add walnuts to the batter for extra crunch.
  • Add a mix of summer squash and zucchini to use up extra garden produce.
  • Add chocolate chips to the batter for an indulgent treat.

Recipe notes

  • Keep the cake in the Anyday cover with the knob down for 1-2 days.
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
