In case you haven't, here it is:
5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE
1 Coffee Mug
4 tablespoons flour(that's plain flour, not self-rising)
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional) some nuts (optional)
Small splash of vanilla
Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well . Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla, and mix again.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes on high.
The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!
Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired. EAT!
(this can serve 2 if you want to share!)
We just did. It's decent. Since I don't have enough people in my family, I hardly ever bake a cake for it goes bad before it is gone, or we feel obligated to eat dessert every time we pass it to keep from wasting it (Not good for the waistline!). So, this will fill the craving every now and then that we have for chocolate cake - we ate it hot with ice cream on it - everything is better with ice cream!
Anyway, for Christmas, I plan on wrapping up the dry ingredients for this mug cake and the dry ingredients for hot cocoa in two cheap mugs with instructions along with a new oven mitt. $9 plus ingredients. Minus the fancy oven mitt, I thought this might be a good office, teacher or extended family gift.
Now, my question is, what other things can I make in a mug? I'm sure I could do an apple crisp, I probably have no hope of making an angel food cake which is my favorite.
