Cake in a Mug

Tonight we did the funnest thing as a family! Opa brought a recipe from Oma for how to make a little cake inside a hot cocoa mug. It was a lot of fun & was easy enough for each of the girls to make their own. If you do try this, a word of advice. We used 3 different mugs & the one that worked best was a mug that had straight up & down sides (not getting bigger towards the top). When you put it in the microwave it raises REALLY high over the top of the mug & it's scary. The straight sided mug worked great, the angled ones spilled a little bit. The cake is good, a little heavy (not light & fluffy), but it's good. And it's just fun to do.

Here's the recipe if you want a fun Family Home Evening activity & treat:

4 Tablespoons Flour
4 Tablespoons Sugar
2 Tablespoons Cocoa
1 Egg
3 Tablespoons Milk
3 Tablespoons Oil
3 Tablespoons Chocolate Chips
Small Splash of Vanilla

Add dry ingredients to the mug & mix well. Add the egg & mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk & oil & mix well. Add the chocolate chips & vanilla & mix again. Put your mug in the microwave & cook for 3 minutes on high. The cake WILL raise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed. Allow to cool a little & eat!
