Monday Munchies... Microwavable Strawberry CupCake

Her Cup Overfloweth inspired me with her chocolate cake in a mug recipe, so I wondered if a similar thing might work to make more of a cupcake. That made me think of jam roly poly and other English puddings of the kind made with suet making your arteries beg for mercy. I made a variation on the choccy cake recipe and came up with this (much more artery friendly than suet puddings but every bit as delicious!):

Strawberry CupCake (quite literally)

2 teacups (Microwavable)
4 Tbsp plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
4 tbsp sugar
1 egg
3 tbsp milk
1 tbsp oil
A small splash of vanilla extract

strawberry conserve
icing sugar

put 2 tsp strawberry conserve in the bottom of each cup

in a small bowl mix dry ingredients, add egg and mix well, add milk and oil, mix well
divide batter evenly between the two teacups

put teacup in microwave, cook on high for 2 minutes (1200W)

I cooked them separately because I was experimenting, for 2 (or more) teacups increase the cooking time... try 3 minutes and see how it goes..... :)

dust with icing sugar
tip out into a bowl.....

Enjoy warm.... maybe a bit of custard for a treat?.....
