This recipe means you can make a ginger sponge-cake, from scratch in 5 minutes. It was recommend to me by Annabelle and Jackie, (in)famous by Xerox association.

This recipe begs to join beer-can chicken in it's own category, Wacky recipes!

Method

  1. Add all of the dry ingredients and mix well, you can do this in the mug, though it's probably easier to mix in a bowl
  2. Add the beaten egg, milk and oil and mix well
  3. Add the ginger and vanilla extract and mix well
  4. Pour into a mug and microwave for 3 minutes on full power (1000 watt microwave)
  5. Allow to cool a little - microwaved food can get dangerously hot!

Serving suggestions

Eat directly from the mug with a spoon or tip it out on to a plate if you're posh!

Chef's note

This was delicious, if not a little too sweet for my taste. I would try with a little less sugar next time.

Using a bowl rather than a mug, makes the clean-up process a little easier even if the overall effect is not quite as dramatic!
