2 minute Microwave Sponge cake in a mug with a sweet chocolatey inside




Days just fly by when kids are at home. Keeping them occupied and entertained is very big hassle which I guess every Mom faces! Same story goes with me. Especially my younger one....he either gets bored very soon or wants to do tons of stuff all at the same time. And so my struggles with him continue...in a sweet way!

Its been a while I posted here...tho I want to post, time just passes me by!....Even tho I am hosting an event on my blog....I am not finding time to write up a post! I feel very bad that I am not able to post. Its not that I am not cooking, but I am, but just to write up and edit the pictures, its become difficult. Something or the other keeps me away from my Laptop.
And then in between there are other stuff which have kept my mind in a turmoil!! I hope everything will be better by the end of summer. Let see...

So in order to send something to my own event, I made this Sponge cake in a mug. I wanted to make this long ago, when I have seen the chocolate version making rounds in the blogosphere. Just to give it a little twist, I inserted Hershey's chocolate kisses to the center to give kids a sweet surprise. And who wouldn't love a cake made just under 2 minutes??


For 2 mugs

Ingredients:

1/2 cup flour
less than 1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 egg
3 tbsp butter
pinch of salt
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 of 1/4 cup milk
2 Hershey kisses for the interior for each mug

{1 minute on high + 20-40seconds as needed. (on high power - 1000 watts)}


Method:

Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add in the wet ingredients and mix together.
Pour in 2 microwave safe mugs until about 1/3 full.
Put 2 Hershey's Kisses in the center, into the middle of the batter. they may not get covered completely but, when the batter cooks, they will get covered.
Microwave on high (1000 watts) for a minute.
[you will see the batter rise high and it will go back down again]
After a minute, microwave for about 20 seconds and check if its done, otherwise microwave for another 20 seconds. Microwaving for too long will make the cake dry.
Let it sit in the microwave for 2 minutes.
Remove and its ready to be served. You can let it completely cool or eat it just so!
Enjoy!!!

Sending this to MEC - Simple and Easy Snacks  - event on my Blog
