Have your Cake and eat it too

Tonight I decided to make the girls a little something for dessert. I came across THIS recipe online and though why not give it a go!! so here it is for you. I upsized it so they got 1 big one each..next time I think I will follow recipe and divide it.

batter ready to go into the microwave.

soon as it came out of microwave

add a bit of custard (which kept sinking and absorbing into the cake at the bottom)

Recipe as follows:
Chocolate Cake in a mug
  • 4Tbsp SR Flour
  • 4Tbsp Sugar
  • 2Tbsp Cocoa
  • 1 egg
  • 3Tbsp Milk
  • 3Tbsp Oil

Mix dry ingredients
Mix wet ingredients
Mix both together.

Put into 1 large coffee mug or 2 regular sized ones.
Microwave on high for 3mins (for 2 regular sized mugs) or 4mins (for large mug)

Serve with icecream, or custard, or cream!

Socks are up to feet! Hoping to have them finished by Friday at the latest.

Rachelle has been busy making birthday present for a friends party which is in a few weeks. Will show piccies when she is done!

Happy knitting all!!

    Were the cups a complete bitch to wash? It's worrying that that was the first thing I thought of... :D
