5 Minutes Chocolate Mug cake 5分钟巧克力蛋糕

One of the good thing that I like living in New Zealand is that you get to have many opportunities to attend free workshops and courses which fully sponsored by local councils and government. Other than free Computing certificate that I'm on 3 days a week, I also participated in one of this Healthy Eating on a Budget workshop which is organized by Auckland North Shore Women Center.

This once a month workshop is more an interactive cooking class to show us how to make budget and healthy meals. I had benefit from this workshop by learning up quite a number of new Western meals since I registered last November 2009.

Last Friday, our lovely cooking instructor has shown us to make a super fast and easy treat dessert – Chocolate Mug cake. Well, sometimes among the healthy meals there are some treat desserts, one can't really resist that temptation even though we need to stay healthy right J

Yesterday, just after I came back from my morning jog, Ming Ray came to me asking for snack. It struck my mind to have mother and son cooking time by teaching him this super easy new recipe that I had just learnt. It only took us cooked from whoa to go in 5 minutes! My little master chef even decorated his master pieces with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and top with colorful jelly beans. J

5 minutes Chocolate Mug Cake

5 Minutes Chocolate Mug cake
This is perfect for a treat dessert for one ( or two if you want to feel slightly more virtuous)

4 Tbsp plain flour
4 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 egg (lightly beaten)
3 Tbsp milk
3 Tbsp oil (Do not use strong flavor oil – Peanut Oil )
Small splash vanilla essence
1 large coffee mug/small jug/bowl

1.Add dry ingredients to mug and mix well.
2.Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
3.Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
4.Add the vanilla essence and mix again.
5.Put the mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes on high. The cake might rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed! Allow to cool a little and tip out onto a plate if desired.

If you are not weight watcher, it will be delicious to serve with whipped cream or ice cream or chocolate syrup onto the cake and decorate it with cherry or strawberry on top to serve. Let your creativity mind run! Cooking is another form of art too!



1粒鸡蛋 (鸡蛋打散)
3汤匙油(不要使用味道重的油- 花生油)


如果体重不是重点, 那加些美味的奶油,巧克力浆或冰淇淋在蛋糕上, 再装饰樱桃或草莓上面。运用你的创意吧!烹饪是另一种艺术呢!
