Rules for making cup cakes

leave a comment »

My mother goes to these friendship groups. One called “Nutall Pheonix Friendship Group” (run by an often cold, mean woman) and the other called “Chronic Pain Group”.  My friend Sarah has issues with the name “Pain Group” =P

Mais oui, when it’s someones birthday they take cakes to hand out the rest of the group. So! I make these cakes for her to take, because I like baking and because it hurts her to stand up for so long.

ROOLZ I should follow:

-If you usually do double the recipe- to feed TWO friendship groups… re-read the measurements… else you might make FOUR times the usual recipe.

-Check whether “All Purpose Flour” means that it is Plain Flour or Self-Raising Flour. Unless you want to feel the worry and rush while HOPING like hell that the cakes rise.

-Putting cake cases in a yorkshire pudding tin will help the cases stay round. If you accidentally make four times the mix and have to use other trays, putting paper cake cases in to a christmas themed cake tin will NOT help the cakes stay round.

ROOL i DO follow:
Have fun with it! It isn’t That much of a science.
Yellow are apple and cinnamon.
Pink are vanilla.
Blue are apple.

AGAIN! The dogs were very helpful!


Tomorrow I’ll be making paper and plastic beads at Dee’s house! WIth more friends! Pictures and How Tos to come!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUMMY RICHARDSON! (brownie mug cake recipe)

leave a comment »

Today was mum’s birthday and mum and dad’s anniversary!

So, I woke at half 9am, ran downstairs, let out the dogs, and… got to making a brownie mug cake for mum and dad!

RIGHT! This recipe is for one chocolate mug cake… apparently… but I mixed the goop in a breakfast bowl and then poured half in to two separate mugs, I suggest you do the same!

4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional), 2 table spoons of chocolate chips and two table spoons of chopped walnuts
a small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.

Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again

my monkeys were being terribly helpful! by… um… keeping themselves busy…

NEXT!:  Split the mix in to two mugs so that each mug is just below half way “filled”. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts.  Your cakes will rise by double!

In the picture at the top of this entry the cake looks SO very shiny… because I added chocolate frosting!!!

So, to mum’s room I went, with a SPOON and we ate half of one mug cake each and left the other downstairs to greet dad as he came home from work! …First time I’ve ever had brownie or cake for breakfast….

mwhahahaha! I did a cheeky verse =D
