So, today started off well…. and productively. I went to the cake decorating shop and bought some teal coloured fondant icing ready to make some flowers for my friend’s sister’s wedding cake. Oh, and finished the book I was reading… P.s. everyone buy Summer Loving by Rivka Spicer. It’s awesome.
Back to what I was talking about… Oh yes, I did some errands, so far, so good, then once I got back in my house. I tidied, cleaned, vacuumed… I was a housework machine!
However, after all that productivity…. I was tired. Andrew is still in Switzerland until tomorrow. I have lost a book that I was planning on trying out a new recipe from. And I had neither cake nor chocolate. Hmmph.
About a week ago I had pinned this recipe
I am very sceptical of microwaved stuff that should be baked. I have had a recipe for cake in a mug previously. It wasn’t good. It had the texture of a bath sponge. When did you ever want to eat a bath sponge? But…. it was necessary. I was in need of chocolate. Or cake. Ideally both. And this provided me with cake in less than 2 minutes.
It’s…. not bad actually, definitely edible. It even retains a little squidginess, as all good brownies should. It could’ve done with some icecream… but as mentioned. I was tired. There was no way I was going to the shop. It was a whole 5 minutes walk away after all!
It’s even vegan. Steady on.
Update: as per the comment below, I made another one of these using strong espresso instead of water. Mr M approved greatly. Recommended if you like coffee, it gives a hint of coffee, but not too strongly.
