  • Step 1

    Place the butter in a 350ml mug and microwave for 10–20 seconds until melted.

  • Step 2

    Add the egg, honey and sugar to the mug and beat with a fork until combined.

  • Step 3

    Add the ground almonds, cinnamon, flour and salt and beat again until smooth. Fold in half the berries and then top with the remainder.

  • Step 4

    To make the streusel, place all the ingredients in a small bowl and rub together with the tips of your fingers to bring together a bit like breadcrumbs.

  • Step 5

    Spoon the streusel topping over the cake and cook in the microwave. Microwave cooking times differ according to the wattage of your oven. If you have a 600 watt microwave, cook for 2 minutes 50 second; allow 2 minutes 30 seconds for an 800 watt oven, and or 2 minutes 10 seconds for a 1,000 watt oven. Leave to cool slightly, then serve.

  • Step 6

    Tip: This is just as delicious without the streusel topping, so leave it out if you are running late! Or substitute frozen mixed berries. Just defrost slightly before using.
