I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Chocolate Chip Mug Cake

All you need is LOVE and a microwave (and a handful of ingredients) when you get that craving for a moist and delicious cake.

Ingredients to make 1 mug cake: 
1/4 cup flour
2 tbsps brown sugar
1/4 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
3 tbsps milk
3 tbsps butter, melted
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 tbsps chocolate chips

10 oz mug

First whisk together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder and salt right in the mug. No need to oil the inside of the mug. I was making two this time so just needed to double and repeat the process.

Combine the milk and vanilla extract along with the melted butter with the dry ingredients mixing just until no dry spots remain. Then fold in the chocolate chips. Doesn't look like much in the bottom of the mug right now but there was enough room for mixing.

Microwave on high for 1-2 minutes depending on your microwave's power. Mine took 1 minute and 40 seconds. And if you double the recipe and make 2 mug cakes, bake them separately in the microwave. It's done when a cake tester comes out clean.
Now you just have to wait at least 1 minute to let it cool before digging in! (As you can see my cake rose to about halfway up the inside of the mug. You might want to try an 8 oz mug but I didn't want to take a chance of an overflow mess in my microwave. Besides, isn't this mug so dang cute?)
