  • 1 tablespoon grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon scallions , chopped
  • 1 small egg
  1. In a large microwave safe mug mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt with a fork.
  2. Add in the milk, oil, egg, cheese and scallions and mix together until just combined.
  3. Make a well in the center of the batter with a spoon and crack in your egg into the center.
  4. Spoon the batter from the sides over the top of the egg. It’s a little tricky but you’ll get it.
  5. Place in the microwave and cook for 50 seconds- 1 minute 10 seconds. you will know when it is cooked because it will be firm to the touch on top . (Cooking time is based on my 1200W microwave so your timing might vary) Always keep a close eye on your mug while in the microwave so it doesn’t over flow or over cook.
  6. Enjoy while warm

⅛ teaspoon is simply a ½ of a ¼ teaspoon
Each egg is roughly 4 tablespoons. Whisk up 1 eggs and take away 2 tablespoons

Cooking time will vary greatly depending on your microwave and the width and depth of the mug

You can bake them in the oven at 350F (180C) for roughly 10-12 minutes. However every mug is different so I advise checking on it after 10 and then make a call.
