2 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 tablespoons self-rising flour

Whipped cream (optional)
Add the butter to a mug, and microwave for 30 to 40 seconds, or until melted.
Once the butter is melted and smooth, add the sugar, milk and vanilla. Whisk until smooth.
Add the flour and salt, and whisk until a batter forms.
Microwave the mug on high for one minute.
