The cakes I bake and the books I read while baking them.
Do you ever just think while reading, man, some cake would go great with this, well, wonder no more because I have the perfect recipe for you and you don’t even need to worry about having eggs in your house or time in which to bake something, this is eggless, can be made dairy free and can be cooked in a microwave, I present you with my first ever mug cake.
You will need:
A microwaveable mug/dish etc
4 table spoons of self raising flour
1/4 tea spoon of baking powder
3 tablespoons of the milk of your choice (I went for soya)
2 and 1/2 table spoons of sugar
1 table spoon of oil
A jiff lemon.
And a book. If you happened to be reading when the urge for cake hit.
Firstly, get your bowl/mug/ whatever. Into this you will need to add your dry ingredients and mix and then add your wet ingredients, depending on how lemony you want this depends on how much of your jiff lemon you choose to squirt in there, I went for a tablespoon. I really like lemons though I should point out.
Mix all of that together until it vaguely resembles cake mix and pop it in the microwave for 90 seconds, during which time you can prepare any sides you want to go with it – I added some fresh mango and a dollop of Swedish Glace ice cream to the top of mine. Your microwave will alert you to finished cake and as long as the top is firm, you are good to go! And you don’t even need to stop reading for all that long!
