  4. Made it in one big bowl. Added a tiny bit of lemon juice to the batter. Microwaved it for 1 minute.then two 30 second bursts and then one 20 second burst. Done.
    Drizzled melted strawberry jam on top. and sprinkled with chopped nuts. It's in the fridge...but I can't say I will leave it in for the 2 hours...LOL.
