How to make microwave syrup sponge mug cake

Step 1

Step 2

Pour the flour, Tate & Lyle Pure Cane Caster Sugar, egg, milk, oil and lemon zest into a large, deep mug. Beat the mixture with a fork until smooth.

Step 3

Spoon a generous dollop of Lyle’s Golden Syrup on to the centre of the batter and put the mug in the microwave.

Step 4

Cook on high for 3 to 4 minutes, medium setting (600 watts) until the cake is firm to the touch. Careful though, it’ll be hot.

Pro tip

You may need to adjust your microwave timings, depending on the wattage of your microwave.

Step 5

Allow to stand for one minute, then serve in the mug topped with a scoop of ice cream and a delicious drizzle of sticky Lyle’s Golden Syrup.

Pro tip

If you’re feeling adventurous, try topping your microwave mug cake with a splash of liqueur for extra delectability. Irish cream makes for a delicious addition!
