Slimming World cinnamon bun mug cake recipe

serves 1
8 1/2 Syns per cake
ready in 15 mins

What you need:

For the cake:

25g self-raising flour
½ tsp ground cinnamon
1 medium egg, separated
25g fat-free natural Greek yogurt
½ level tbsp sweetener granules
30g raisins (save a few to decorate)
¼ tsp vanilla extract

For the topping:

40g fat-free natural Greek yogurt
1 level tsp sweetener granules
pinch of cinnamon and remaining raisins, to decorate

What you do:

1. Mix the flour, cinnamon and raisins in a small bowl.

2. Using an electric hand whisk, beat the egg white in a clean glass bowl until it forms stiff peaks, then set aside.

3. Put the yogurt, sweetener, vanilla extract and egg yolk in a mixing bowl and mix until well combined. Stir in the flour mixture, then carefully fold in the egg white using a metal spoon.

4. Scrape the mixture into a microwave-safe mug (one that’s around 250ml is ideal – try to avoid anything wide and shallow) and cook on High in a 900W microwave for 2 minutes. Leave to cool in the mug until just warm – it will sink a little as it cools.

5. For the topping, mix the yogurt and sweetener together, then spoon it over the just-warm cake. Top with a sprinkling of cinnamon and a few raisins.
