Cake in a Mug mug


When I couldn't get carbon snakes to work, I made exploding cake in a mug. And for a last-minute holiday gift, I just put the barebones recipe on a mug, complete with crudely drawn illustrations. You can order them too from Cafe Press. Order by Monday for holiday delivery.

This looks great fun! We have a microwave for the first time(because we are renting) and so we must take advantage!

Lorna (and everyone), before you try this, note that this version uses *hot chocolate mix*, which has dry milk and sugar already in it. I adapted it from a recipe that used just plain cocoa which I found on Melissa Wiley's great blog: http://melissawiley.typepad.com/bonnyglen/2008/10/why-i-had-child.html

Also, for your convenience, here's a link to a tablespoons to ml converter: http://www.calculateme.com/Volume/Tablespoons/ToMilliliters.htm

1 Tablespoon = 14.786764765625 Milliliters

Finally, be sure to tip the cake out into a dish and cut it open with a fork to let the steam out before eating. Otherwise it can get gummy.

Let me know if it works!

I don't think those links came out. Here's a shorter version:
