HFG tip

  • This recipe was made in a 1100W microwave, so cooking time will vary depending on the strength of your microwave. Increase or decrease cooking time by 10 seconds and check regularly.
  • Start microwaving as soon as you add the berries to prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the mug.
  • The yoghurt will help cool down the muffin, but be aware that it’ll come out of the microwave extremely hot.
  • The best mug to use is a large one with straight sides.
