I have recently discovered a bunch of new (to me) blogs that I'm really enjoying. Eventually, I will update my blogroll (you know in my spare time!) so you can see them! One of them is Sarah's If only I had chocolate. (How could you not love a blog with that name?) Recently she blogged about a mug cake and posted the recipe. Well, this week we tried it. And tried it. And tried it! So yummy!
4 tablespoons cake flour (I figured this was S R flour)
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
optional, 3 tablespoons choc bits
Mix dry ingredients together in the mug. Add wet ingredients and mix well. Pop in the microwave for 2 minutes. Yum!
My mugs must be smaller than everyone else's! When I tried it first my cake exploded out of the mug. So now we mix two cakes in two mugs and then tip mixture into a third cup till all three are even and we cook each mug for 90 seconds. If you choose to add the choc bits add them to the top of the mixture and don't mix them in. If you mix them they all just fall to the bottom of the mug. Of course, if you like chocolate puddles under your cake, mix away!
The next thing I'm going to do (in my spare time!) is try out some different types of cakes. I'll let you know how I go!
