This mug cake produces a lovely, light sponge. Using date nectar rather than sugar, not only is it healthier, but it has a gorgeous sticky toffee flavour. I use Beloved date nectar click here which is widely available in the supermarkets.

5 minutes
2 minutes


  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp date nectar
  • 1/2 tbsp Flora Light
  • 1 tbsp self-raising flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 beaten egg
  • 1 dessert spoon powdered stevia sweetener


  • pop the milk and Flora Light into a mug and microwave for about 10 seconds, so the margarine melts
  • stir in 1/2 tbsp date nectar, then the baking powder, flour, egg and stevia and mix well with a fork, breaking down any lumps.
  • Microwave on high for 1 minute. This should be long enough, but give it a quick poke to make sure it’s springy and not squishy, and if it isn’t quite done, give it 10 second bursts until it is.
  • Drizzle the remaining date nectar over the top and eat while warm


I know it’s a bit annoying having half an egg left, but I tried it with a whole one and it was too eggy! Make one for a friend at the same time, or throw the leftover egg in an omelette later!
