Carrot Mug Cake – Slimming World Recipe

Here’s another mug cake recipe, this time it’s yummy carrot mug cake. The recipe makes 1 serving and is 4.5 syns per serving.

Carrot Mug Cake


  • 2 level tbsp self-raising flour
  • ½ tsp ground mixed spice
  • 2 level tsp sweetener
  • 1 small carrot, peeled, ½ grated and ½ peeled into ribbons with a vegetable peeler
  • 1 medium egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tbsp skimmed milk
  • fat-free natural Greek yogurt, to serve
  • ground cinnamon or nutmeg, to dust


  1. Put the flour, mixed spice and sweetener in a 250ml mug and stir to
    combine. Add the grated carrot, egg and milk and stir again to combine.
  2. Place the mug in the centre of the microwave turntable and cook on
    high for 2 minutes or until risen (our microwave was 800W, so adjust the cooking time if yours is different). Leave to stand for 5 minutes – your mug cake may be a little moist in the centre but don’t worry, it will continue to cook while it stands.
  3. Turn the cake out on to a plate (or eat it straight from the mug if you want to keep things informal!). Add a dollop of yogurt, dust with
    cinnamon or nutmeg and decorate with the carrot ribbons. Tuck in
    straight away, as microwaved sponge tends to dry out faster than oven-baked sponge.
