In response to the post on whether feminism killed home cooking or if it was simply that dastardly appliance, the microwave, many commentors pointed out that they really like to cook. To those commentors, I might say “please have me over for dinner, I do not know how to make anything that doesn’t go in the microwave.” But I don’t. Because most of the time, my non-cooking-skills are okay, because microwaves are awesome! And now I can make cake in a mug! In 5 minutes! In a microwave! Try to beat that time, Rachel Ray. Here’s how it’s done:
A microwave oven
A large microwavable mug
A tablespoon for measuring
4 Tablespoons flour
9 Tablespoons hot chocolate mix
1 pinch of salt
3 Tablespoons water
3 Tablespoons oil
Measure out the flour, hot chocolate mix and salt into the mug. Stir.
Crack the egg into the mug. Stir a bit after adding the egg so the cup doesn’t overflow.
Add water and oil.
Stir until thoroughly moistened. Make sure to scrape the bottom of the mug with your spoon to avoid any leftover pockets of dry ingredients.
Microwave for 3 minutes
Eat while making nom, nom, nom noises.
