Today our SBB is featuring a delicious recipe!
See, your Blues are already busted, aren’t they?
Just thinking about good food lifts my spirits. When I caught strep throat really badly once, and couldn’t hardly eat anything, I actually drew pictures of ice cream, rice, cake, and all the other things I wanted to eat that I couldn’t have… that’s how much food cheers me up. 🙂
So anyway, let me show you the beautiful mug cake my brothers and I made a couple days ago – actually we made 6 of them, but if you plan to do that, just bake a regular sized cake. It’ll save a little time 🙂 We had a lot of fun, though, and I’m excited to share this successful cookery with you:
This recipe comes from ‘Mug Cakes’ by Lene Knudsen, photographed by Richard Boutin, published by Hardie Grant books.
Lemon Mug Cake:
1 slice of butter 1 cm thick
4 level tablespoons caster (superfine) sugar ( I used powdered sugar)
2 teaspoons lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon vanilla sugar
4 teaspoons light cream ( I used milk; turned out fine)
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
4 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 teaspoon water
yellow food coloring
Melt butter in microwave for 20 seconds (800 watts).
In a mug, beat in one by one sugar, lemon zest, egg, vanilla sugar, cream, flour, baking powder, and melted butter
Cook in microwave for 1 minute 40 seconds
Decorate with yellow icing
Go treat yourself, and bust Sunday Blues!
