Vanilla Cake In A Mug
We are still unpacking, so I have not yet started to bake again yet.
These microwave 1 cup cakes are a perfect solution for those moments when you want something sweet, without too much fuss.
Yaffa said that she wanted a vanilla cake, and that she likes vanilla more than chocolate. That she could even vocalize that in and of itself is amazing. I had to honor her request.
This cake was a bit of a risk. I made the recipe up, based on the proportions of flour to sugar in the brownie cake posted earlier. As a bonus, this cake also does not have eggs. Spelt flour can easily be substituted, for those who do not eat wheat.
I am happy to say that it came out really well!
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup milk (or liquid of your choice. I used rice milk)
3 tablespoons oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla (1 capful)
In a large mug, combine dry ingredients until well mixed. Add oil, vanilla and liquid, and mix until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips, if desired.
Microwave for 90 seconds
If you are uncertain about the power of your microwave, start with 1 minute and increase the time as necessary.
