Syrup mug cake recipe

Syrup mug cake recipe

I only discovered these things a while ago and they’re great!

With the use of a microwave these mug cakes take a grand total of about 4-5 minutes to make.

To the recipe!

  •     1 egg
  •     50g butter
  •     30g caster sugar
  •     50g self raising flour
  •     4-8 tbsp golden syrup
  •     A mug
  •     Small mixing bowl
  •     Scales
  •     Wooden spoon
  •     Microwave
Cooking method (5 minutes)
  1.     Weigh the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl and beat with a wooden spoon until pale and creamy.
  2.     Add the egg and beat well until combined with the butter and sugar.
  3.     Sift the flour (if you have a sieve) and mix well until you have a nice cake batter, add 2-4tbsp of golden syrup and mix well. If it’s really (too) thick add a little milk.
  4.     Rub a little butter or oil around the inside of the mug the put another 2-4 tbsp of golden syrup in the bottom of the mug.
  5.     Fill the mug with the cake batter, it should be somewhere around 1/3 full.
  6.     This part depends on your microwave because let’s face it, they’re all different. I find it usually takes about a minute and a half on full power (850w) but you’ll have to experiment.
  7.     When it’s done go round the edges with a knife or pallet knife and turn it out onto a plate.
  8.     Enjoy!
