Leave to cool for a few minutes before eating as the cake will be boiling in the centre when you take it out of the oven.

Remarks

If you would like a lighter cake, add 1/4 teaspoon baking powder to the mixture.

This is a great way to keep children amused on a rainy afternoon for a few minutes before teatime. As long as you take the mugs out of the microwave for them, there's no risk of them burning themselves.
