Although a lot of us are finding more time to test out our skills with elaborate recipes, that doesn't mean we're above cooking up a simple and speedy sweet treat. Whether you're running short on imagination or energy, or you're a little nervous in the kitchen – not all of us are destined to be professional bakers, right? – we've got your back with this fast and easy donut recipe.

Scroll on for a super-simple step-by-step guide to making your own mug treat..
Choose a mug suitable for the microwave. With a fork, mix together 40g melted butter, 30g sugar, 1 egg yolk and 2tbsp semi-skimmed milk.
Add 40g plain flour, ½tsp baking powder and ½tsp cinnamon.
Add 50g of your fave jam (we chose strawberry) and gently push it down into the mixture.
Pop your mug in the microwave for 45 secs. If it's not quite cooked, give it another 15 secs. To serve, sprinkle with sugar and any other toppings you want. We like it with an extra dollop of jam on top, or just left plain – yum!
