Microwavable mug-cakes

The final result

This week at Beavers we learnt ‘virtually’ how to make mug cakes. Here is the recipe we used.

Ingredients (dry)

  • 1/4 cup of flour
  • 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar
  • a pinch of salt

Ingredients (wet)

  • 1/4 cup + tablespoon of milk
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil

Ingredients (optional)

  • 1 tablespoon of mini chocolate chips


1/ place all dry ingredients into a bowl and mix together

2/ add wet ingredients into the same bowl and mix until smooth

3/ place into a microwavable mug (you may have to scrape sides of bowl to get all mixture into mug)

4/ sprinkle chocolate chips (or extra ingredients) onto top middle of mixture – no need to stir them in

5/ with a microwave of 950W place into microwave for 70 seconds or for an 850W microwave place in for 80 seconds etc.

The final result

6/ take care when removing mug from microwave as it’ll be hot

7/ if your cake does not feel ‘cakey/spongy’ place in microwave for an extra 10 seconds

8/ wait for cake to cool down before eating

BLOGMAS (day 13)

So today is Friday the 13th which is considered unlucky (and how it was very much so today). We woke up to the election results which we’re predictable however, this morning in form there was a debate happening over the results. This was then proceeded by our usual quiz which was actually pretty good with us getting quite a few answers correct.

The first lesson was a test which went better than expected and then after break I had a Physics practical. This did not go very well as we connected our equipment in series rather than parallel and so had to redo our pratical in 10 minutes. I then had a careers talk before then having my first Librarian session in year 12.

After this, I had a rehearsal for the concert tonight which went pretty well. Then I had to pop into a shop on the way home where I needed to buy some pencils which I couldn’t find for an activity tomorrow.

Once home, I raced to get back out again to school (shoutout to sis84 for cooking me eggs), where I needed to fold 1000 + raffle tickets as well as helping to set up before taking part in the concert. I sang the traditional Boars head carol as well as Christmas in about 3 minutes …

It was then around time for act 2 which was a play all about the history of Christmas and then I could go home. However, there were some biscuits left over which reminded me of the Netherland unit ‘speculazen’ whom were camped next to out Florida buddy unit – way back on the Jamboree.

I will see y’all tomorrow for another BLOGMAS.
