In a bowl, whisk together self-raising flour, plain flour, milk, sugar, the melted butter and vanilla until well combined. Divide the mixture evenly between four 200ml microwave safe mugs. Arrange the mugs on the microwave plate and pop the microwave on high for three minutes until the cake is cooked and a skewer comes out clean (If using a small microwave, cooking in two batches may be needed). Let cool. 

Using a 2cm round cutter, cut a 5cm deep hole in the middle of each cake. Dollop one teaspoon of raspberry conserves into each hole. In a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, combine the icing sugar, butter and milk and stir until it's glossy. Pop a few drops of pink food colouring into it and pour the icing on top of the mug cake to form the doughnut look. Decorate with sprinkles and let set, then serve! 

And voila! Quirky and so 2018! Looks like it took loads of time but was in fact as simple as 1,2,3!
