  1. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Mix in the egg and milk gradually, so as not to curdle the butter. Sift in the flour, and fold in gently. Transfer to a 1 pint microwave-safe bowl.
  2. Cover, and cook for 3 1/2 minutes on full powder, or until the pudding appears set when gently jiggled, and the top is sticky. Serve hot.

I used this receipe to make small fairy cakes. I made 8, but microwaved them 4 at a time incase the first batch didn't work out. I put the cake cases on a pyrex dish and cooked in full power f...

Very quick and easy. Found 3 mins was enough as it dried out a bit, otherwise yum, will cook again.

Pretty good for a really quick dessert. I didn't have self-rising flour, so I made some by adding 3/4 tsp baking powder and 1/4 tsp salt to a 1/2 cup all-purpose flour. I also added a small spla...

This came out a little dry. It was ok with some syrup on it. I don't think I'll make this again.
