It's late and my mind is searching for distractions from a speech I am writing. Naturally my thoughts turn to chocolate cake. I do a quick web search and find a recipe for a 1 minute microwaved Mug Chocolate Cake. Has to be a gimmick, right? Best to put it to the taste test .....
Recipe: Mug Chocolate Cake
4 tablespoons cake flour
4 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
3 tablespoons full-cream milk
2 tablespoons olive oil
splash of vanilla essence
oil mug then add and mix all dry ingredients
Then add egg, milk, oil and vanilla. Stir well.
put mug into the microwave and cook on high for one to three minutes depending on your wattage
remove the hot mug with a tea towel
dust with icing sugar and serve with cream or ice-cream
not a chocolate cake for the purists but it certainly satisfies the craving and best of all there isn't much washing up!
