mini baking experiment: chocolate mug cake

Before i delve into actual baking, i wanted to try out baking in a microwave. I’ve always wondered how a microwave cake would turn out. So i followed this recipe (minus the chocolate chips):

  • 1 EGG
  • 3 TABLESPOONS MILK
  • 3 TABLESPOONS OIL
  • 3 TABLESPOONS FLOUR
  • 4 TABLESPOONS SUGAR
  • 2 TABLESPOONS COCOA POWDER
  • SPLASH VANILLA EXTRACT
  • PINCH SALT

Combine everything in a tall microwave-safe mug, mix well until smooth & no lumps, pop in microwave for 2 minutes and voila! Cake is done!!

The cake is very moist had the consistency of a brownie. Would be great with ice-cream.

The cake turned out better than i expected! I was very pleasantly surprised. It was a success! πŸ™‚
