    Altered ingredient amounts. Double the amount of golden syrup - makes it taste even better! Microwave for 5 mins on cat D microwave - perfectly cooked.  -  18 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)


    I halved the recipe and put it into two large mugs. Microwaved them each seperatly for 3 minutes. It was scrumptious!  -  02 Oct 2009  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)


    Altered ingredient amounts. 4 minutes 30 seconds in an 850W microwave. You can also use 3 medium eggs instead of 2 large.  -  05 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
