Did you Freda's Hive Today?
And if you did, then ask yourself... Are you feeling lucky? Well, are you?!
This recipe I got off of the Quilters Gallery email, (so I can't link it) they received it via email, from Linda B. of Ottawa, Ontario.
I think it's a brilliant recipe! Sure to be one of my favorites, so if you find yourself stitching well into the early hours to get those projects completed in time for the holidays? Here's a special treat just for you... ice cream optional.
5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE
(or as I like to call it: Mom's Mini-Me Cake)
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil [I'm going to try it with apple sauce instead]
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
a small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug
Add dry ingredients to the mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil (or applesauce) and mix well. Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts (high). The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed! Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
Update: This comes out like chocolate bread, really pretty good, but different from cake. Hard to explain really, also don't skip the chocolate chips!
