Wash the potato and prick with a sharp knife several times on all sides.
Dry the potato well with kitchen paper and place on a microwave-safe plate.
Place in the microwave and cook on full power for four minutes.
Remove the plate using oven gloves and turn the potato over. Dry the potato and the plate and put back into the microwave.
Heat on full power for a further four minutes.
Remove the plate and leave the potato to stand for a minute, as it will continue to cook. Check that the potato is soft by pushing a sharp knife into the centre. Return to the microwave for another 30 seconds if it is still hard in any part.
Cut the potato in half, scoop out the fluffy middle with a fork, and spoon over the topping.
