Re: Really, really easy recipies

@Tiny_leaf @Right?! They are super simple but so rich and tasty all at the same tome. Ooooh brownie in a cup, yeah I have heard. Been wanting to try it, hopefully I get to pretty soon 😁

Re: Really, really easy recipies

@StarGirl101 I used to have microwave mug cakes all the time! This has inspired me to make some again Smiley Very Happy

Re: Really, really easy recipies

Oooh, what a great thread! I also used to have microwave cakes all the time. There's also a microwave cookie in a mug which I love. I think I've posted the recipe in a WW once, but here it is again (taken from here):

1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
1 Tablespoon brown sugar firmly packed
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 
1/8 teaspoon pinch salt
1 egg yolk
3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
1-2 Tablespoons chocolate chips


1. Microwave butter in a mug until melted, 30 seconds to 1 minute. With a spoon, mix in sugars, vanilla extract and salt until well-combined. Mix in egg yolk until no traces of the yolk are seen. Mix in flour. Fold in chocolate chips.
2. Microwave on high for 40 seconds, or a maximum of 50 seconds. Serve warm (maybe even with a dollop of ice cream).

I also make overnight oats, which are the BEST when I remember to make them because I can just grab them out of the fridge for breakfast and I don't have to do anything in the morning! Pretty much the night before you put in a mason jar 1 cup of rolled oats, 1 cup of any milk, and any flavorings you like (I like using honey, peanut butter, cinnamon, cocoa powder, bananas, berries... just mix it up! Most online recipes recommend adding chia seeds but I haven't tried that yet). You shake it all up in the jar, and put it in the fridge overnight. The oats get nice and soggy, and it's ready to eat in the morning! They're meant to be eaten cold, but you can heat it up if you want to (just take them out of the mason jar first, haha).

I've really wanted to get into meal prepping (beyond my oats) lately. Pre-making salads in mason jars looks fun, haha.

Re: Really, really easy recipies

@Hozzles I've seen some really good looking pasta salads in a jar, I've been meaning to try something like that!

Re: Really, really easy recipies

I love this one!

Beef Pasta:

Any pasta
500g mince
Any greens you can think of (broccoli, kale, bok-choy)
A whole lotta crushed tomatoes
Napoleon sauce

Boil water and add pasta
Cook mince separately. When cooked, throw everything else in.
All done!

Re: Really, really easy recipies

My absolute favourite easy recipe are mini pizzas, because you almost don't even need a recipe!


As long as you have mini pita breads and tomato paste/tomato sauce/pasta sauce and cheese, you can add any other ingredients that you like. Pop them in the oven for 15 or so minutes and you're done!


Some examples of things you could put on top are:

- ham or salami

- spinach

- pineapple

- capsicum

- olives

- zucchini

- mushrooms

- eggplant

Re: Really, really easy recipies

I love this thread, thanks so much @Tiny_leaf ! 


My go-to snack when I absolutely cannot be bothered is sliced apple with cheese on the top ( I like cheddar cheese, but a soft cheese like brie or goat's cheese is also good). Sliced apple with crunchy peanut butter on top is also oddly amazing.

Re: Really, really easy recipies

Hm... I'm getting hungry! Smiley Tongue Here's a couple of things I've been having recently:

Corn Pile


  • 2 cups cornflakes
  • 200g shredded cheese (cheddar or mozzarella are both good choices!)
  • 1/2 cup of beans, shredded salami, pickled cucumber, or whatever you fancy really!
  • Your choice of sauces (I go for mayo, tomato and mustard)

Preheat your oven to 160 degrees, line a baking tray with baking paper, and then heap everything on in layers:

  1. Cheese
  2. Cornflakes
  3. Cheese
  4. Filling (eg beans, salami, pickles)
  5. Seasonings (I like to go for paprika and chicken salt here!)
  6. Cheese
  7. Cornflakes
  8. Sauces
  9. Cheese
  10. More seasonings (this is where I add pepper and oregano)

Then, put it in the oven for 10 minutes or until the cheese is crispy on top. Then dig in with a fork!

Strawberry & Rose Tea

This one's so easy it doesn't need a proper recipe - just make a cup of tea like you usually would and then add a teaspoon of strawberry nesquick and a drop of rosewater essence!

Re: Really, really easy recipies

Hi @Tiny_leaf !


I hope you are doing well my friend. I don't really know many recipes, but as someone who is always on the run and very busy, I don't have much time to prepare for food, so I've had a few favorites that I buy and that I always grab that are yum and convenient including:

  • MUFFINS (very good, has lots of variety, goes great with tea or coffee) probably my fav
  • BANANAS (very healthy and convenient to eat) you could eat 3 in like 1 minute. 
  • SOUP (little controversial but I really like Continental - Cup A Soup. Its powered and just needs water but ITS very good in my opinion.) Recommend the chicken noodle soup.

Good luck friend!

Re: Really, really easy recipies

@Anzelmosoup cups are great!! when I want to make it a little more filling I just whisk an egg in while I'm heating it over the stove. it's a great meal to have on the go if you put it in a keep cup too, as I discovered one hurried morning Smiley Tongue
