5 MINUTES AND YOU ARE IN HEAVEN ….

Standard

We all love yummy chocolate gooey treats especially during the winter months.But as a not so keen baker I tend to shy away from baking and often just buy some treats.

Over the weekend I spent time trolling my Facebook feed and found a recipe and I amo most defiantely going to make …… at some point . The reasons I love this recipe and have saved it is:

a) it takes 5 minutes only
b) I have all these ingredients at home .
c) I can make individual portions.
d) It can be made in the microwave.

However be WARNED ! This is the most dangerous cake recipe in the world? Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night

Ingredients:
4 tbsp. flour
4 tbsp. sugar
2 tbsp. cocoa
1 egg
3 tbsp. milk
3 tbsp. oil
A small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)

Method:
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.

Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts (high). The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don’t be alarmed! Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
Serve on its own with a dollop of fresh cream , custard or icecream!

Do let me know if you try this out 🙂

5 Favourite movies

Standard

Another one of my addictions is watching movies and series. I have 2 HDs full but my problem however is getting time to watch.They say good moves are generally ones who leave you feeling good, ones you watch over and over and ones you can quote lines from.

There are so many fantastic movies and series out there and in so many different genres. Its kinda difficult for me to pick 5 only but i will attempt too.

5 Favourite movies :

1) Serendipity ( check out earlier blog post on this one)

2) Love Actually

3) Nottinghill ( Hugh Grant lover)

4) Bridget Jones Diary

5) Chocolate ( Johnny Depp and chocolate who can resist )

After writing this list, I have noticed I love British movies 🙂

Series watching is so addictive and time consuming. My friends, cousins and I swop and copy all the time from each other. I love having these as there are no adverts and you can watch more than one episode.Here gos my list 🙂

5 Favourite Series :

1) Pretty little Liars ( Thriller/Mystery)

2) Gavin and Stacey ( British)

3) Two Broke Girls (Comedy)

4)Revenge ( Thriller /Mystery)

5) Bones ( Forensics/ Thriller)

I love a good series that catches my attention love a good comedy though Thrillers and Mysteries keep me hooked. This list was harder to do as I love so many So what are you watching? What are your favourites? Let me know.

Have a fab weekend. Series time beckons me 🙂
