I have a confession.....I love those micro-wave cake/muffin/cookie recipes that are going around these days. Yes, I know micro-waves are bad for you, and I seriously don't use it very often at all.
But every now and again you want a warm, baked-good type treat, but just enough for one, and you don't want to turn the oven on for it. In this case though, what I really wanted was maple syrup, and needed something to eat it on! Enter the Pancake in a Mug (o.k., well, actually, I like to use a ramekin, but "pancake in a ramekin" doesn't sound as nice)....also, it's something like a muffin, but you wouldn't usually eat syrup with a muffin!. It's name is all a big lie, but it's yummy, so, who cares!? Also, let me warn you, it's actually a healthy little morsel, so it's easy to forgive!
Pancake in a Mug (or whatever)
* This could be a low carb treat if you used a sugar free maple syrup, and a low-carb fruit (blueberries, raspberries, or strawberries are low)
Use an oven mitt to get this out of the micro, as it will be hot! I like to knock mine out of the dish to eat with some maple syrup, or sometimes I will just leave it in the dish. Depends on if I want to wash an extra plate! :)
You will be surprised at how light and fluffy this turns out! And it's just the right size, tastes not too sweet, and gets a slight nutty flavour from the flax. I honestly make this particular recipe at any time of day-for breakfast, lunch, a mid-day snack, a dessert, or a watching t.v. at night snack. The kids ask for them too.
I hope to share some more micro-wave mug recipes in the future (sorry peeps with no micro-waves!), but in the meanwhile, do you have a favourite, or have you tried a micro-wave mug recipe at all before?
