Mug Cake
Darlene’s English Class
 
Last week we looked up instructions to make mug cakes. We used three recipes to make five cakes in school with all our classmates. We had a lot of fun doing it all together. We enjoyed it so much! They were delicious!! Lots of calories though!!! Here is our favourite recipe: 
Directions:
Put dry ingredients into mug, and mix well.Add egg and mix thoroughly.Pour in milk and oil, mix well.Stir in chocolate chips and vanilla.Microwave for 2½ to 3 minutes on high.
Cake will rise over the top of mug, but don’t be alarmed!
 Remove from microwave and allow to cool a little.If desired, drizzle with chocolate syrup and top with whipped cream and cher-ries!
 
One microwaveable mug
Ingredients
 
4 tbsp flour 
 
4 tbsp sugar 
 
2 tbsp cocoa
 
1/4 tsp baking powder 
 
1 egg
 
3 tbsp milk
 
3 tbsp oil
 
3 tbsp chocolate chips
 
splash of vanilla
