Super easy, super fun and super delicious; this dessert hits the spot in minutes.

Add fresh peppermint ­ flavour, or you could swap this with some raspberries or grated orange zest for that ‘jaffa’ ­ flavour. Top with grated chocolate or even make ‘mug cup sundaes’ with crushed honeycomb and nuts.



Prep time 5 minutes|Cook time 1.5 mins

  • 1⁄3 cup (35g) self-raising flour
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar

  • 2 tbsp, butter, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste
  • A few drops of peppermint oil (optional!)

  • Divide mixture between two mugs and stir to combine. Place mugs in the
