As the winter approaches and the days get shorter, there will come a point where (even if you’re on a post summer diet), you’ll fancy a little something sweet. Nothing crazy, but something to satisfy those sweet cravings.
Allow me to introduce you to cake in a mug. If you don’t wish to go down the road to temptation, stop reading now. I promise I won’t take it to heart. In fact I’ll totally understand. I almost wish I’d never heard about it…almost.
What I love about cake in a mug (introduced to me by an online friend in my baby group), is that you can chop and change to make it as healthy/less sweet as you like. It’s small, you don’t have to leave the comfort of your warm home to go out and buy it, you’ll have most ingredients in your cupboards AND it satisfies your cravings with no left over cake lying around the next day. Share it with someone and you’ll feel even less guilty.
So here it goes…you can thank me later 😉
2 tbsp flour
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp cocoa
A pinch of baking powder
A pinch of bicarbonate soda
A dash of vanilla essence
1 tbsp melted butter (you can literally put butter on a spoon and hold it over your gas for 5 seconds)
Mix it all together with some milk.
Pour it into a mug and if you have some cooking chocolate lying around, throw 2 cubes in there.
Microwave on high (900w) for 90 seconds.
