Winter is the season of comfort food and there's nothing better than a warm pudding or slice of cake. But on those cold, snowy evenings when you can't even bear to leave the warm security of your house (and your Snood) for a sweet treat, here's our fruity - but naughty - cake recipe that you can make with just a microwave and the contents of your cupboard.
- 1 tbsp butter, melted or 1 tbsp sunflower/vegetable oil
- 1 egg (lightly beaten)
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp milk
- 1 ripe banana (mashed)
- 4 tbsp self-raising flour
- 3 tbsp brown sugar
Mix all together in a big mug and cook for 30 seconds at a time, for about two minutes or when firm on top - cooking time will depend on your microwave power. Top with chocolate sauce, sprinkles, cream - whatever you like and dig in!
