You cannot cook shortcake in a microwave. This is because you require a temperature of 350 degree F, which cannot be provided by the microwave since you need this to pre heat the oven. After preparing the ingredients, you will then have to bake for at least 30 minutes at the same temperature for the first 15 minutes and at 325 degree F the last 15 minutes.

Yes. The texture is a little different but the taste is good. 11 Tbs Bisquick, 4 Tbs sugar, 3 Tbs oil, 4 Tbs milk, 1 egg, 1 tsp lemon extract. Mix together. Fill microwave-safe muffin cups 1/2 full. Microwave at 50% power for 3 minutes, at full power for 1 minute.
