I just made this and loved it! Forgot to buy the crappy sponge cakes my husband likes so needed a quick solution. This was perfect. To get half an egg I put an egg in with 6 tbsp milk, beat lightly and then put half in the dry ingredients. I simply cooked the leftover egg/ milk like a half serving of scrambled eggs.

Thank you for this recipe!


Am definately trying this. That 1/2 egg solution makes so much sense, thanks.


I nearly cried when I ate this, soooo good. I used less butter, and made the batter in a measuring cup then layered the strawberries in mug. I loved the cooked stawberry layers plus some fresh ones on top!


2 tablespoons makes more sense and looks like what is in the video. Someone needs to correct the printed recipe (4 T. equals 1/2 a stick — a lot of butter!).

Just made this and Loved the ease of it as well as the taste and texture. This state is far to hot to turn an oven on most of the year.
Thank you. Thank you.
