Move Over Mug Cakes



100g self-raising flour

100g caster sugar

100g softened butter

2 eggs

Zest of 1 lemon

1 tsp vanilla essence

4 tbsp lemon curd


1. Mix the flour, sugar, butter, eggs, vanilla and lemon zest together until smooth,

2. Transfer the batter into a well-greased, medium-sized microwave proof dish. We used a 0.8 litre sized dish.

3. Microwave for 3-4 minutes (we made this sponge in a 800w microwave in 3 min) until the sponge has risen and is thoroughly cooked – a skewer inserted into the middle should come out clean.

4. Leave it to rest while you scoop the lemon curd into a microwave-safe dish and heat for 30 seconds. Give it a stir so it’s glossy and smooth, then dollop generously over your sponge to serve.

Serve & Enjoy!
