Dorm Room Dish

By Jenna Grasso, Staff Writer

While studying for tests, and doing late night homework, all students will enjoy a chocolate treat at 2 in the morning. Cake-In-A-Mug is a very simple baking task that only takes 5 minutes, and is very tasty once done!


You can add more taste by adding pudding, whipped cream or even ice cream on the top! Who wouldn't want to eat a piece at cake in the early morning hours while trying to study for an exam? Or for that matter, at any time at all? Making this cake is something that's very simple, and it something that everyone will enjoy once they are done making it!


The first step is to mix all the dry ingredients together in the mug. These ingredients should be 4 tablespoons flour, four tablespoons of sugar, and two tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa. And if you want, you can add chocolate chips, M&M's, or even peanuts if that's what you enjoy! The second step is to combine the dry mix with one egg, three tablespoons milk, three tablespoons of oil, and a half-teaspoon of vanilla extract.


Once you are done mixing all of the ingredients together you will put the mug in the microwave for 3 minutes. The time could vary depending on the microwave. If the cake comes over the top of the mug that is completely normal and will flatten once you take it out of the microwave and let it cool. The recipe can serve two medium sized mugs.

Some renovations great, but others rather excessive

Like "THON," the games should go on
