I was craving for some chocolate cake for the past 3 days. So I’ve been looking for some super easy and quick to make recipes online. Over the past 2 days I’ve tried two such recipes and am sharing them here. With a 9 month old brat who demands all my time, “easy” has to be an important factor when it comes to home cooking. So here you go:
Voila! Yummy chocolate cake in a mug is ready to dig in! You can top it with nutella or melted peanut butter when still warm or add chocolate chips in to the batter before cooking for a different texture. All these work well and I’ve just made myself some more mug cake with peanut butter and choc chunks.
Now for the next recipe
I followed a doughnut recipe, tweaked it as usual to fit to availability of ingredients and baked it in a muffin tin so I’d say this recipe works well for both donuts and muffins depending on the pan you will be using. However they require a sweet topping to add the extra kick as they are not very sweet on their own unless you are on a diet 😉
*The nutmeg is for the donuts to have the bakery doughnuts smell and it is entirely optional and I chose not to add nutmeg.
**We don’t find buttermilk in Srilanka very easily so what i did was instead of using 1/4 cup yogurt and 1/4 cup butter milk i added 1 Anchor Yogurt cup (the regular one serving size cup) on to 1/2 cup water and beat it with a fork until no lumps and used that. 🙂 It worked really well!
For the Glaze:
Mix 5 to 6 tblsp of icing sugar with 1/4 tsp at a time of fresh milk. Make it nice and not very thin, just enough to coat the muffin tops. The consistency is entirely your call. I sometimes like it thick and not too runny. 🙂 You might want to dust some icing sugar over half your batch (cool them completely before doing so) if you like the variety or pour some chocolate ganache.
Next time I make them, I promise to take a decent pic of my yummies. This one was taken with my tab and I don’t like the quality one bit! Trust me the taste is not like what it looks in this pic, haha! 🙂
B/w I wonder what my favorite tea-cup is doing in that picture! Could I be a better critique of my own?! 😛 B4 U Say it! 😉
