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 🙂

Bon Appetite

Bandwagonbox

Standard

During the month of February I kept seeing some fellow bloggers/ tweeters talking about the bandwagonbox. So the curious monkey inside me asked and now I am apart of this amazing group of lovely ladies.This project was started by @GeeWhiskers, @glamglit, @mmmrska and @tamsw9·The membership has now grown to ten and in April I recieved my 1st box.

So every 2months you are paired with someone and you have to send them a box of goodies. Each box has a theme, the April box was beauty so i had lots of fun putting together a box for GeeWhiskers (www.geewhiskers.com) The box is to the value of between R100 – R150. We have a forum where members posted their likes,dislikes and wishlists.This made shopping much easier. Its such a fab idea of getting a surprise box of goodies.Its also a chance to unleash your creative side and try new products.

The box for June is themed Winter Warmth and I am preparing my box for GlamGlit ( http://glamorousglitter.blogspot.com) My box is almost done just the pretty bits to do.

My April box was done by the amazing GeeWhiskers.The box was indeed a box of treasures. Thank you GeeWhiskers for my gorgeous box and the opportunity to be apart of Bandwagonbox. Here are some pics of my fab box :
