  • Kenny's Three Minute Micro Cup Cake

    3 Minute Chocolate Cake

    4 tablespoons of self raising flour
    4 tablespoons of caster sugar
    2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
    1 egg
    4 tablespoons of semi-skimmed milk
    3 tablespoons of vegetable oil
    dash of vanilla extract

    In a large microwave safe mug, combine the self raising flour, caster sugar, cocoa powder, egg, semi-skimmed milk, vegetable oil and vanilla extract.

    Mix thoroughly until the mixture becomes smooth.

    Microwave on full power for 3 minutes. Allow to stand for 1 minute and serve with ice cream, double cream or chocolate sauce (see recipe).

  • Kenny's Choc Sauce

    Chocolate Sauce

    2 tablespoons of chocolate and hazelnut spread
    3-4 tablespoons of semi-skimmed milk

    In a microwave safe mug, combine the chocolate and hazelnut spread and semi-skimmed milk.

    Microwave on high for 20-30 seconds. Stir well until the sauce becomes smooth.

  • Microwave Macaroni in a Mug

    Macaroni Cheese in a Mug

    4 tablespoons of dried macaroni
    Pinch of salt
    100ml of water
    1 large handful of grated cheddar cheese, plus a little more
    50ml of semi-skimmed milk
    1 small handful crushed ready salted crisps (optional)

    In a large mug, combine the dried macaroni, salt and water. Mix well.

    Microwave the macaroni for around 6 minutes, stopping the microwave every 2 minutes to stir the ingredients well.

    After 6 minutes, the macaroni should be cooked and the water fully absorbed.

    Add the grated cheddar cheese and semi skimmed milk. Mix well.

    Microwave the macaroni cheese for a further 3 minutes, this time stopping the microwave every 30 seconds to stir the ingredients well. The mixture will appear thin at first but will thicken well after 3 minutes.

    Remove the macaroni cheese from the microwave and add the leftover cheddar. Mix thoroughly. This last minute addition of cheese will help to thicken the macaroni further still.

    Serve, topped with optional crushed crisps for added crunch (trust us, it works!)
