Seriously…. it is a saturday afternoon .. and I am in a baking mood… a SERIOUS baking mood – so the cheesecake for tomorrow’s supper club is in the oven… and there is a banana bread ready to go after that… but right now, I am CRAVING something chocolate-y and sweet… and suddenly I had this little brain wave (yes – it happens on occasion…. the synopsis in my brain ACTUALLY connect!)
And after searching through a pile of recipe magazines and some printed out recipes… I finally found it….
THE ONE MUG CHOCOLATE CAKE
Halle-flipping-luhah! How brilliant is this idea??? Particulary for people like me (and yes – I not only mean people who live alone BUT ALSO people who want something and they want it NOW!! The instant gratification crowd…)
I know… pretty bizarre considering I am baking other cakes… but I can’t wait until tomorrow… I just don’t possess the *waiting* gene that everyone else seems to have… I want something and i WANT IT NOW! And I only have to wait to 3minutes (excluding mixing time) for a portion of chocolate mug cake… Hip Hip Hooray!
CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE
4poons self-raising flour
4 spoons sugar
2 spoons cocoa
4 spoons milk
4 spoons oil
a splash of vanilla extract
- add dry ingredients (flour, sugar and cocoa) to a mug and mix well
- Add egg, milk, oil and vanilla extract and mix again
- Place MUG into microwave for 3minutes on HIGH
- Serve with ice-cream or custard (my preference was the latter… yum yum)
I have to give a huge credit to the website called www.realmums.com.au who have a whole range of different MUG cake recipes… whoop whoop for their ingenuity!!!
