If you have ever read any of my baking posts you would know by now that cooking is not my forte. I do enjoy baking every now and then and this is because I find some kind of creativity in it. Making cupcakes and decorating them is something I really enjoy doing.
I also like making cocktails in Summer or alternatively, experimenting with flavours and making hot drinks in Winter. Last year, during the festive season, I made cinnamon hot chocolate with vanilla ice-cream. Despite the weird combination of ingredients, this was the best hot drink I have ever tasted.

Today I am here to talk about this mug cake made in microwave in only two minutes.

As a busy mama I am always after something quick and easy in the kitchen. Therefore making delicious cakes in just two minutes sounded like a miracle to me. Yes, these microwave mug cakes are life changer and they are the best thing that have come out of my kitchen.

Preparation time…

As I mentioned above, I like to experiment with the ingredients. So the day I decided to make this yummy mug cake I did not have my regular baking butter in the fridge.
I decided to use Jamie Oliver olive oil. I was quite sceptical at first but I had to take the plunge. Lucky enough his olive oil was the perfect alternative to the butter.
First I warmed up the oil and six cubes of milk chocolate in the microwave for 30-40 seconds. After the chocolate melted, I steered until smoothened.

Next I allowed the mixture to cool down slightly. Than, one by one, I, whisked in one egg, sugar, flower and baking powder. I sprinkled the cherries with a little flour and added them in the mug without stirring too much. microwave mug cake

All I had to do is cook it in the microwave for 1 minute and 20 seconds.
(You will notice how the mixture is raising up and it slowly thickens.)
Once it cooled down slightly, I decorated it with whipped cream, roasted hazelnuts and the rest of the cherries.
