SPANISH MUG CAKE WITH BEEF SAUSAGES AND POTATOES
Prep time 10 mins Cooking time 5 mins Serves 4 1 ¾ cups plain flour 2 tsp baking powder 1 tsp salt 4 tbsp unsalted butter, cubed 200ml whole milk
½ cup grated Manchego, or other firm Spanish cheese
⅔ cup beef sausages, peeled and diced ¾ cup finely diced waxy potatoes ½ red pepper, cored, seeded and diced 4 tbsp tomato passata ½ tsp smoked paprika Stir together flour, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl. Divide between four large microwave-proof mugs. Divide the butter between the mugs and stir into the flour mixture with a fork until it resembles breadcrumbs. Stir 50ml milk into each mug, followed by the cheese to make a rough batter. Stir together the remaining ingredients with a little freshly ground black pepper in a small bowl. Spoon on top of the batter in the mugs. Working one by one, microwave on high for 60-90 seconds until risen and puffed at the edges. Remove from the microwave and let stand briefly before serving.
