Cookie Dough Mug Cake!!

Last night I decided I was going to do a bit of baking today. Ok so it’s not proper baking, but still!

I saw a website which had recipes for MUG CAKES. These cakes are made in a mug and can be cooked in the microwave – how cool is that?!

Here is the website.

There are 7 different types there, but I decided to try the cookie dough mug cake today!

The recipe is:

Combine 1 egg, 3 tablespoons of brown sugar, 4 tablespoons of self raising flour, 1 tablespoon of butter (or margarine) and 4 tablespoons of chocolate chips in a mug. Mix well and microwave for 2 minutes. Finish with a generous helping of vanilla ice cream.*

And taa daa – there you have a mug cake!

It was my first try, and I don’t actually have table spoons, so I kind of guessed a little bit with the measurements, but it turned out pretty good. – It’s a tiny bit dry – maybe the ice cream would’ve been useful!!

But anyway, I took pictures!!!

And then I ate some!

So what do you think?? I might try the chocolate mug cake next time, or maybe make adjustments to the cookie one – maybe I used too much flour this time!

*I didn’t add ice cream, some of you may remember that I don’t like vanilla ice cream from another post I wrote ๐Ÿ˜›
