To make a Summer Strawberry Mug Cake you will need

A microwaveable Mug and bowl and of course a microwave!

A food processor


1 piece of Lo-Dough blitzed into fine breadcrumbs – can be purchased here Low calorie bread alternative

1 large egg

3 medium strawberries quartered

2 tsp sweetener

I served mine with Quark flavoured with a Belgian Chocolate Options sachet but you can use your imagination to create your own combination.


In the same processor that you made the breadcrumbs, add the egg, sweetener and strawberries together and blitz slightly – just enough to blend the mix but leaving little pieces of strawberries intact. Spoon the mix into your cup. Place uncovered in the microwave for two minutes. Leave to stand for five minutes – your mug cake will continue to cook during this time. Loosen the cake from the cup with a knife and turn onto a plate. Serve and enjoy whilst hot with fat free yoghurt and fresh fruitSummer_Strawberry_Mug_Cake
