So I have been seeing these cakes in a mugs everywhere. A couple blogs that I follow have mentioned them, one has a giveaway for 101 recipes for cakes in a mug. One of my craft magazines has a recipe for one that you give away as a gift.
I decided that I would try and make one. So I found a recipe online.
4 Tablespoons cake flour
4 Tablespoons sugar
2 Tablespoons cocoa
3 Tablespoons milk
3 Tablespoons oil
Mix flour, sugar and cocoa:
Spoon in 1 egg
Pour in milk and oil, and mix well
Put in microwave for 3 minutes on maximum power (1000watt)
Wait until it stops rising and sets in the mug
Tip contents out of mug onto saucer and enjoy!
This is what it looked like in the microwave
This is it after I got it out of the microwave.
This is it dumped out onto a plate.
(I think it looks like a rose :)
Then I added some scoops of icing that I had in the pantry (chocolate of course!) made by Pillsbury.
It was delicious while it was warm, but the cooler it got (while I was blog hopping :) the spongier and chewier it got. So make sure to eat it HOT!
