My baby Tisha turned three, and all that she was bothered about, was her birthday Cake. So, we booked a Tinkerbell Cake for her Birthday party, which was on Saturday. Big Problem : Her birthday was on Friday, 27th December.
We wished her, pampered her in every possible way on Friday, but she was still not in the Birthday mood. We took her to an animated movie, got new clothes for her, gave all the attention that she deserved on her special day. Still, she was like “No, It’s no Birthday”.
What’s a birthday, without a cake? She was right. So, I decided to bake a small cake for her. Small because in my family no one seems to have a sweet tooth. We don’t like eating cakes. Even my kids don’t like eating sweets much. All that Tisha wanted on her birthday was to cut the cake, not to eat it. 😦
I have baked cakes before, but this time I wanted to try something which is quick and easy to make, taste doesn’t matter. (I am not gonna eat it, so why does it should matter 🙂 ). I was going through all the cake recipes, when I stumbled on this easy to make 3 minute chocolate mug cake. Voila!!!!
Recipe is down below.
All Purpose Flour (Maida) – 4 tbsp
Sugar – 2 tbsp
Cocoa Powder – 2 tbsp
Egg – 1
Milk – 3 tbsp
Butter/Oil – 3 tbsp
Vanilla Extract – ¼ tbsp
Choco Chips – 1tbsp (I was out of them, so didn’t use)
Add and mix all the dry ingredients.
To this add Egg and mix really well.
Pour in milk and oil as well to make it smooth.
Make sure there are no lumps.
Add Choco chips and vanilla extract. Mix well.
Put this mixture in a Microwave safe Mug. (I have used a bowl, to have a small cake shape)
Microwave it for three minutes on high.
And done. 🙂
I used some M&Ms and chocolate for decoration. All it took to make this cake was 5 minutes.
Some friends also joined in the small celebration and Tisha cut the cake happily. Icing on the cake, it was not bad in taste. Although, it was not as good as a cake baked in Oven for half an hour, but still it was a quick fix. Tasted okay, looked more than okay. Happy Ending. 🙂
Happy Birthday My sweets.
