2 tbsp sugar

Pinch of salt

1 egg

2 tbsp milk or almond milk

2 tsp vanilla essence

Icing sugar to serve

Combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in the mug. Mix really well.

In a separate bowl, beat the egg with the milk.

Pour into the dry ingredients and add the vanilla essence. Mix well.

Place the mug into the microwave for 2 minutes. Or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
