Recipe Tips

  • If you do not have cream, you can replace it with two tablespoons of milk. This change will give you a less creamy mix, but it will be slightly healthier.
  • You must keep an eye on the mug while it is in the microwave. The scramble mix may boil up and spill over the sides of the mug, making a mess. To help avoid this, just stop the microwave if it looks like it is just about to boil over.
  • Heavy cream is also known as thickened cream in Australia or whipping cream in the United Kingdom.
