About this recipe:Just mix all the ingredients and microwave for 3 mins while you get ready for work. A delicious 'muffin' will be waiting for you!
1 large coffee mug
4 tablespoons wholemeal plain flour
3 tablespoons demerera sugar
1/3 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch salt
1/4 banana, mashed to a pulp
2 tablespoons veg oil
1 tablespoon pasteurized dahi
2 tablespoons whisked egg
2 tablespoons water
1 splash vanilla essence
Directions Prep:2min › Cook:3min › Extra time:10min other › Ready in:15min
Stick all your ingredients into the coffee mug and stir well. The cup should be about two thirds full.
Sprinkle the top with sugar and whack it in the microwave on full power for about three minutes, until the mixture has risen over the top of the mug and is sticky and bubbly.
Take it out of the microwave and let it stand for ten minutes (the top will sink back into the cup). Either serve it in the mug or turned out onto a plate, topped with a dollop of pasteurized plain or vanilla curd and some fresh walnuts. Yum!
Don't expect microwave muffins to have the same light, fluffy texture as oven cooked ones. These will be sticky, sweet and quite heavy. As a rule, the wetter the mixture, the lighter the texture of the muffin, but you can't have everything in three minutes! :)
