Cake in a Mug!!

| | Comments (2)
Some time ago, DC and I had been talking about the idea of a "cake in a mug" (after we saw it in Lifehacker or some such) and how his friends had been experimenting with it.  Well after their last coast trip away, this is the definitive recipe they've come up with:

  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 tablespoons self-raising flour
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 egg
  • splash vanilla essence
  • 3 tablespoons oil
Mix the dry ingredients and then the wet ingredients in a greased mug (I didn't do the greasing, that was too hard)

  • Mix in 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips (I plonked a bunch in on the top, they ended up sinking to the bottom anyway)
Microwave on high for three minutes

Serving suggestion:  serve with ice cream (which the sweetie did)

We used wholemeal sr-flour - which gave it a bit of a rough texture - probably would have been improved with refined sr-flour.

But it was pretty darned nomm for so little effort :)

And while we're here... two years ago today we flew across the wilds of Siberia and ended up in Frankfurt Germany..
