Does anyone remember the 3 min microwave jam sponge from about 5 years ago? 🍰

If so, does anyone remember the recipe?

I’m sure you made it in a bowl, not a mug.

I’ve googled but all I can find is a golden syrup one. But the one I’m thinking of was definitely jam!

Just replace the syrup with jam?

No but I'd love to find out. We have a couple of different mug cakes recipes that we use but not a jam sponge one

Oh yes.

Of course 😂

In my defence, I only slept for five hours last night 😅

I found it. It was a syrup one after all. I must have used to use jam instead.

Fab! DH will be very happy.

Preparing the ingredients right now so I can make it after dinner!

Ooh, you'd need custard with it though...

I made it with jam and had custard and it was absolutely SUPERB!

DH was very happy grin

Wow I have never heard of this! We've even bought the expensive individual ones from the shop.

I am so doing this tonight!

Hmm must try that. I don't remember seeing that but I do remember the microwave strawberry jam recipe - It took hours to clean several surfaces of jam grin

Oh, I have been looking for a sponge pudding recipe- how timely!

Oceans12isCrap 😍 thanks, I needed to see this today!

I remember this, and still use quite regularly - you can do chopped apple in it instead, to make an apple cake smile

I used to do this at uni <harrumph> years ago when mcirowaves were rather rarer than they are now.

Heat milk, sugar and custard powder in microwave while mixing one egg, 2oz SR flour, 2oz sugar and 2oz marg (per 2-portions) in a bowl until well-combined. Push mix to one side, add tablepoon syrup, push mix back over top and nuke for 3 mins. Custard may need a bit more heating but it's done in 5 mins.
I put ginger powder in mine too. Yum.
