My name is Miki, and I live healthily on a budget, I am not a vegetarian but do have many meat free days, I have a lot of love for beans, pulses, lentils and veg, so you will see many meals posted based around these ingredients. I will also post meat and fish recipes. I spend no more than £30 per week for 2 full time adults, plus my 2 elderly inlaws evening meals (I do meals on wheels for them) and my granddaughter a couple of days a week...I love food especially savory food and curries, but I do have to watch my weight so many of my recipes will be low in fat, with the odd pie thrown in lol.

  1. Good pudding and easy to make. I save on the washing up and mix in same bowl I microwave it in!

    Also, if you like it chocolate flavoured, replace about 10g of the self raising flour with 10g of cocoa powder.


  2. I love microwave sponge puddings; great for a quick dessert and so many variations. I make a chocolate one by substituting part of the flour with cocoa powder (about 1 tablespoon) and adding 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder and maybe a tablespoon of milk so it isn’t too dry. You can add some choc chips as well. Another variation is to add a couple of tablespoons of sweet mincemeat for a fruit pudding.
