Recipe: Cake in a mug

I know - everyone knows this one!  It was scrummy so here it is again.

I have wee pullets eggs at the moment and it seemed to me that they would be perfect.  I needed cake.  Yes, I did, definitely NEEDED cake.

I did it the classic all in one.
First of all I weighed the egg (in its shell) and it came to 44g.
I weighed out 44g of SR flour, sugar and spread into a bowl.  I popped them in the microwave for a short time to soften the spread, then I beat them together with a fork.  Then I added the egg and mixed it well, finishing it off with a few drops of vanilla.
It went into one of my mugs and into the microwave.  3 mins at 600.

Just what was needed!  Five minutes from start to finish.


  1. There are times when only cake will do!!!!

  2. I've not done this!
    One to try at the weekend, I think! X

  3. I ate the lot, Tracey - it's scrummy!
    The time depends on the size. A normal sized egg was supposed to be 4 minutes so I thought three for a mini egg. Do the skewer test to check!

    Yes, Diane - last night was definitely one of those times! :-)
