I've seen this idea for making cakes in mugs kicking around for a fair while, and I finally got around to trying one when my craving for chocolate cake overpowered me. There are some really simple [this being one] and some more "developed" recipes for cakes in mugs on the internet it's all up to personal choice. I just wanted something super quick and fun plus with currently having really bad tonsils at the moment, I needed something easy to eat.
What you will need;
One microwaveable mug
Four tablespoons of icing/confecioners sugar
One and a half tablespoons of cocoa powder
Just measure out and mix all the ingredients together into your chosen mug and stick into the microwave for about one to one and a half minutes depending on the power of your microwave - just make sure to keep an eye on it.
Mine developed a slight lean after taking it out of the mug, I guess you can eat it without a topping but I choose some cream. It's never going to beat a top notch cake and or desert but if you want something quick and very easy to make then its definitely worth giving a go. I think this might starve off many a chocolate and cake hungry pang in the near future.
Have you ever made a cake in a mug? Have any good mug cake recipes to share?
