"Mug recipes have always been a guilty pleasure of mine for several reasons, first of all, I’m not that much of a baker and am far too impatient to wait for a fresh batch of cupcakes or Victoria sponge to be baked when I could just quickly whip up something sugary and sweet in the microwave! Secondly because they make minimal mess, there’s no baking trays to wash up and rarely a mixing bowl in sight! Finally, I love them because if you prefer fruity type cakes (like me) but your other half, bezzie or flat mate prefers something different like chocolate flavoured cakes then you can easily make two different mug cakes in less than 10 minutes! Everybody wins!"
Break up the white chocolate and add it with the butter to your mug.
Pop the mug in the microwave for 30-40 seconds then give it a good stir to make sure everything is melted and combined. Then allow the mixture to slightly cool.
Next, whisk in the egg, followed by the sugar, flour and baking powder, being sure each ingredient is completely mixed in before adding in the next one. Then microwave again for 40 seconds.
Add the jam into the middle of the mixture then microwave again for a final 50 seconds.
Allow the cake to cool then sprinkle your icing over top and enjoy!
