A Cup of Cake

My cherubs had some friends over for some weekend fun!

Pizza, playing, a movie  . . .and dessert!

I didn't have the time or energy to make a dessert for tonight,

but I remembered Ms. Kaye had given me a recipe a long time ago for

"A Cup of Cake."

Now with pinterest, and google, and other media in the palm of our hands, one can find this type of recipe most anywhere.

But with the girls, I thought they might enjoy making their own "cup-cake!"

I have to be honest;  I'm not too in love with the taste.

But the concept is fun!

All of the ingredients are out and the recipe is hanging on the cabinet door, and girls are gathered around the kitchen island laughing, and dumping, and stirring, and microwaving, and before you know it -- you have your own little dessert!

With all the love and good times that goes into making the dessert, it kind of makes up for the slightly bland taste!

A Cup of Cake

4 TBSP flour
4 TBSP sugar
2 TBSP cocoa
1 egg, beaten
3 TBSP water
3 TBSP oil
a splash of vanilla
2-3 TBSP chocolate chips

In a large coffee mug, sprayed with Pam, add the flour, sugar, and cocoa.  Stir well to mix. 

In a measuring cup, add the egg, water, oil, and vanilla.  Add to the dry ingredients and stir well.  Dump in the chocolate chips.  Stir.

Put in the microwave for 3 minutes.  The cake will rise above the cup, but don't worry!  It shouldn't make a mess!  Allow to cook.  Remove from the microwave and cool a few minutes before enjoying!
