  • 4

    tablespoons sugar (1 tablespoon per mug)

  • 4

  • 2

    teaspoons vanilla extract (1/2 teaspoon per mug)

Directions

Lightly grease the mugs. Mix the eggs, flour, sugar and oil/butter together and then add the vanilla extract. Beat to mix, but DO NOT over beat the batter; it is okay if it is lumpy. Add milk to make a loose batter pours. Spoon golden syrup in the bottom of the mugs and then add the cooked apple. Pour the cake batter over the top; fill each mug to JUST OVER a half, any more batter and the cake batter will run over the top of the mugs. Cook the mugs INDIVIDUALLY for 2 minutes on high or 1 ½ minutes on high for smaller mugs. Allow to stand for 1 minute and then serve with cream and/or crème fraiche. Warn everyone that the mugs and cakes will be very hot – allow to cool for 2 minutes for children. Excess batter can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 days.
