Lazy steamed jam pudding

Another lazy pudding, able to be made and eaten in about ten minutes with yourself, a couple of mugs, and a microwave. The jam I'm using is some seriously amazing stuff: cherry and mint, by ma belle Cherie. Homemade. I think this is the last jar left since it's pretty seriously delicious.
Let's get to this.

Ingredients:
flour to dust mug
non-dairy margarine or oil to oil mug

2 tB jam (homemade and slightly underset best so it's a bit runny. Otherwise you could add 1 tsp of hot water and give it a stir)

2 tB flour (I prefer wholemeal/whole wheat, as usual)
2 tB sugar (I use brown)
1/4 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp oil
dash vanilla (1/4 tsp ish)
1 tB fauxmilk or water

FURTHER WATER FOR THE STEAMIN'.

Directions:
Oil/marge up your mug, and dust it with flour. I find a tea strainer very useful for this.
(If you've got a tapered mug like mine, you can frankly probably skip this step. But remember, unlike most mug puddings, this one will be tipped out at the end.)


Spoon the jam into your mug.

Now (and here's the tricky bit) get A SECOND MUG. In this place your dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder). Add your wet ingredients and stir until smooth. Spoon on top of jam in first mug.



Boil some water in the kettle. Pour into the second (now mostly empty) mug. Bonus: this starts to get this sucker clean! Place both mugs in microwave and nuke for 3 minutes.


Turn your cake out onto a plate. Eat.

Look, I got fancy for you. (Considering most of the mint in our back yard seems to have leprosy at the moment, that's some fancy mint.)


This actually makes bugger-all cake, so if you have a big mug like mine, I suggest making double. If you don't have a big mug, make double anyway. Put it in a small microwave proof bowl. You can still use a mug to stir it, I promise.

DOUBLE THE FUN amounts
Ingredients:
flour to dust mug
non-dairy margarine or oil to oil mug

3 tB jam (I wouldn't double this because 2 tB over that microwave cake was A LOT OF JAM, YO. But maybe you like it like that. And your jam isn't ubersweet like mine.)

1/4 c flour (I prefer wholemeal/whole wheat, as usual)
1/4 c sugar (I use brown)
1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp oil
dash vanilla (1/4 tsp ish)
2 tB fauxmilk or water

FURTHER WATER FOR THE STEAMIN'.

I know you didn't really need all those images. But I was so shocked when I took the first one on my phone and it actually looked like it was supposed to despite it being at night that I got carried away.
