An easy mug cake that tastes amazing and is only 3 syns!
I recently introduced my 8 year old to mug cakes, and she was blown away- she just couldn’t believe that you could achieve such a good cake in just a couple of minutes!
I was testing out a few recipes in my new microwave (read about it here!). I made a full fat and sugar chocolate mug cake for my daughter ( I used this recipe), and then I experimented with a Slimming World friendly version, using my healthy extra B oats.
The only extra step you have to go through here is that rather than using flour, you just need to blend your oats into a fine powder to get the cakey consistency. This is very easy with the right appliance (a mini-chopper), and if you don’t already have a mini chopper then I highly recommend getting one anyway! I have this one from Tefal which I am really pleased with:
I use this a lot- for example for blending onion, garlic and ginger for curry, spices, hummus and oats.
I settled on this steamed jam pudding- it tastes totally indulgent. I also tested it out on my husband without telling him that it was a Slimming World pudding, and he really enjoyed it too!
The only syns are in the baking powder (1/2 syn), granulated sweetener (1/2 syn) and jam (2 syns) if you use the oats as your healthy extra B choice.
I hope you enjoy it!
