So here is the situation, the children always have a pudding, it’s law! Even if it’s just a yogurt or cheese string, and my extremely fit, with out any fat on him no matter what he eats 😥 (not that I am jealous at all) has a massive sweet tooth and hollow legs so even after eating dinner he likes a pudding.
Second part to this is my daughter likes me to bake cakes etc with me but my husband borrowed my kitchen Scales for the farm and I don’t know anything off by heart! So I turned to my kitchen life support, Google!
- Recipes with out scales – cups! I don’t have measuring cups
- cups converted – up comes a conversion to ml in a jug .. Saved! Victoria sandwich here we come!
Ok so two searches solved that issue… But wait I haven’t self raising flour! search again
- Plain flour cake mixtures – and here something amazing came up…. Microwave Mug Cakes!
My life has been changed for ever! I have done plain cakes, chocolate cakes, chocolate fudge cakes, treacle puddings, jam steam puddings and the final one I will mention, the saviour to my too ripe bananas is the beauty, the amazing, In a mug banana pudding! Here is my take on it:
- Take a microwavable bowl (I use a tupperwear or recycled Chinese tub
- Take a real table spoon (the ones in the sets aren’t big enough
- 3 table spoons on plain flower
- 3 table spoons of brown sugar ( I use light
- 1 table spoon of milk
- 1 table spoon of stork
- 1 egg
- 1 or 2 mashed bananas (I don’t always mash
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
- Whisk till fully mixed
- Put in the microwave for 2 1/2 mins (750w)
- Top with a mahoosive scoop of vanilla ice-cream
- Eat eat eat!
I Remember the original recipe saying it’s meant to be gooey still in the middle.. But this is up to you! You might want to stir before a minute has passed as it can cook on the outside quickly or lower the heat and keep putting it back in in 30 seconds burst till you know how long your microwave will take. It’s so quick, uses one tub, a whisk, a table spoon and a teaspoon (I use a normal spoon as I know how much half a teaspoon is then use that to eat it with ) and keeps my hubby very happy! Soak before washing the tub.
Please let me know if you try this, it’s not fancy but does a grand job of curing a sweettooth!
