Oreo. Truffles. I am being 110% serious these are some of the most delicious things I have ever made. I’ve also never had a truffle…I don’t know why, maybe I’ll try a store one. I’ll probably still like these better. The best part? The ingredient list is so incredibly short and simple. It’s so simple and any mess is a fun clean up because it’s delicious. A win win, so let’s start. These things are worth a rant and a tummy growl and spontaneous combustion, if you’re in the mood for that.
Ahh, the name itself makes me hungry and this picture does not help. At all. Every time I get the chance because of some event where I live, like most recently ribfest, and there is funnel cake, you bet I will eat some. I love it so much and it brings me joy, what can I say. It’s even better when you can make it yourself and have it whenever you want. So, look! A beautiful recipe to make it with! ^_^
Yes, this cake is literally names wacky, mostly, from what I know, the ingredients. Or lack thereof. This is an incredibly simple recipe that is both egg, nut and milk free, it can be made chocolate or vanilla in a simple switch of ingredients. Delicious moist and great for birthdays with some added icing. As a bonus, every icing with it is yummy. So let’s get the talk over with move on to the good part.

So, here’s a quick sum up of how this post came to be, Emily and I (Shayla) were at my house after hockey and I wanted to make white chocolate brownies, didn’t have all the ingredients so we looked for something else to make. On facebook I found a video of an awesome recipe and immediately we did the whole, look at each other excitedly thing and got to work. Before you know it we were making mug cakes. Lots of fun with absolutely delicious results. Here it is:
- 2 tbsp butter (melted)
- 1 large egg
- 2 tbsp of milk
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 6 tbsp self-rising flour (we used normal flour it worked just fine)
- a pinch of salt
- sprinkles (of any kind)
Now here’s how it went:
- Add the first two ingredients together and mix.
- Then add in the milk, vanilla extract and sugar, mix well again.
- Add in the flour and salt (we switched to using forks for stirring at this point)
- Mix until smooth.
- Once all the bumps are out you’re free to add in your sprinkles and mix in, no exact amount just however much you want. “I know I know, we only had Christmas sprinkles”
- Then put in the microwave. Our video said 1 minute but it ended up being at least 2 mins give or take, simply put it in until once you put a toothpick in and it comes back out clean.
- Once it cools down, add on top the icing, you can use a bag to make it look more artsy, we just wanted to eat it though.
“Just had a moment while typing this, that is a really short list of instructions :P”
Notes From Shayla: I happen to be allergic to eggs so in my recipe I used egg replacer instead of an egg like Emily did. In the end result it, mine rose less than Emily’s did and was comparably less dense as well. Mine was nicely filling, with just the right amount of richness I enjoy. I also didn’t put sprinkles on top of my icing, I didn’t feel like it. It ended up being really delicious and we put the icing on a bit earlier due to impatience, but that meant it was nice and warm and the icing could melt slightly. This is a recipe I’d noticed before in another video that was done by popsugar instead of buzzfeed, same recipe but with some different details at the end. Take a look if you want: 2 Minute Mug Cakes. Also even better if you have some milk while eating it ^_^ Good luck and happy baking
Notes From Emily: This was fun and easy recipe to make, and the cake tasted amazing! The cake itself ended up being really filling because it was so rich and dense. I also added the icing before it was completely cooled for the same reasons as Shayla, but in the end, the slightly melted icing only enhanced the flavour. I didn’t finish my cake, so Shayla sent me home with the leftovers. By the time I got home, it had become much denser, thus the textured took away from the flavour. I didn’t think about reheating it in the microwave, but when I talked to Shayla about it, she suggested that reheating it would probably help make it less dense… Good luck and hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did!
Brownies are admittedly and undeniably delicious, but I tried them only for the first time almost a year ago, when somebody made eggless ones for me for my birthday. Yea, sixteen years, no brownies. She thought it was sad too, I won’t blame you. Now I’m starting up my kick of enjoying baking brownies myself, starting out with this recipe. Continue reading “Recipes: Eggless Brownies”
