A Couple of Quick Recipes.....

I have found a couple of quick, easy recipes that can be made in a mug in the microwave.... and they're perfect for this rainy, cooler weather at the moment. Not something you probably should eat every day... but great for now and then....
I have changed a couple of the ingredients in the first recipe to suit what I have at home. The original recipe called for almond milk, coconut butter and coconut flour...

Cinnamon Bun in a Mug

2 tbsp plain flour
1 tsp cinnamon
dash nutmeg
1 egg
2 tbsp milk
1 1/2 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking powder

For icing:
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp milk
1 tsp honey
1 tsp lemon juice

Mix all the cinnamon cake ingredients together in a coffee mug, mixing in the baking powder last.
Microwave for 2 minutes
Mix all of the icing ingredients in a small bowl and then drizzle over the hot mug cake.

Too easy... Enjoy!!!

3 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

4 tbsp flour
4 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp cocoa
1 egg
3 tbsp milk
3 tbsp oil
A small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug
3 tbsp chocolate chips (optional)

Add dry ingredients to mug and mix well.
Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil 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…. 
Or just eat straight out of the mug! 


NB... I found this one to be very filling and really could be shared between two people... the cinnamon one is just the right amount for one person...
I've got a savoury one to try today... I'll let you know how it goes.....
