A MUG PUD : HOW TO MAKE A CAKE IN A MUG IN 5 MINUTES

We have been reading about how to make a cake a mug. Strange as it may be, these are microwave recipes. We thought it is time to try them out.

This is the recipe we followed, although we did put in a dollop of our blackberry jam.

INGREDIENTS
  • 6 tablespoons all purpose flour 
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • dash vanilla or lemon extract (or whatever flavor you would like) We omitted this and added jam.
  • 1 large mug. We use a pint mug.
DIRECTIONS
Add the dry ingredients to the cup and stir together.

Stir in the egg, water, oil and extract of choice. Microwave for 3 minutes (1000 watts). We waved it slightly longer. The cake should rise to the top of the mug.

Allow to cool a little and turn out onto a plate. Looks like something from a gore movie if you ask us.

VERDICT
Our 'cake' turned out dense. It could be the jam but we doubt it made it that dense. It is more of a pudding cake we reckon. Good served hot with a dollop of ice cream, hmmm vanilla. We might flambé it with some sweet liquor tonight. Will we make the 'cake' again? Perhaps, when we are bored or desperate.

Here is a video on how to make a chocolate cake.
