a tasty experiment


i've been having a couple of rough days with my tummy. so, i wanted something sweet, bready, and easy on my tum-tum. so, i got a little experimental in my microwave of all places. its a bit of twist on the chocolate cake in a mug recipe. the ingredients may sound random, but i was working with what i happened to have in my kitchen. i couldn't finish it all in one sitting. it is a lot, but i think it turned out well. so, i'm sharing it. i took a spoonful out to taste and so, you could see it has a cakelike not pudding consistency.

cake
4 tbs powdered sugar
4 tbs oil
3 tbs half and half
3 tbs flour
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp baking powder

topping
2 drops of vanilla extract
2 tbs half and half
1 tbs powdered sugar

mix all the cake ingredients in a bowl or large coffee mug. cook on high in the microwave 2 minutes then continue cooking in 15 second increments til done thoroughly. poke several times with a toothpick so that the topping can soak into the cake. mix the topping ingredients and microwave on high for 1 minute. pour the topping over the cake and allow to soak in for about 10-15 minutes. enjoy.
