This will be my last Mum’s treat cup-cake for a little while.
I’ve been dealing with sciatica (pinched nerve) for a couple of weeks now, which my doctor and physio believe is likely to stay for the remainder of my pregnancy, and I’m worried about putting on too much weight due to my physical activity being so restricted.
So, warm gooey cup-cakes are on the way out – along with chocolate, sugary tea, Tim Tams, honey crumpets…sob.
What’s a girl to do?
For those of you who aren’t watching your calorie intake, grab a mug!
1 1/2 tbs milk
1 1/2 tsp butter
1 1/2 tbs castor sugar
3 tbs self raising flour
1 tbs mashed banana
1 pinch cinnamon
1 tbs brown sugar
3 tbs hot water
Place butter and milk in your mug and microwave for 30 seconds. Mix in castor sugar, flour, banana and cinnamon. Sprinkle brown sugar over the batter and gently top with the hot water. Microwave for 60-75 seconds on high until the top looks spongey but moist and the sides look saucey. Let stand for 1-2 minutes.
Serve with cream or ice-cream.
Ah, cup-cakes, I’m going to miss you.
