Well, so let us turn to tonight instead. I wrote a new recipe in my new recipe book. I made this amazing chocolate cake for one in a mug--Ant's special dessert to celebrate the end of a hard work week. What a nice treat that only took moments to make!
Chocolate Cake for One
4 T flour
4 T sugar
2 T cocoa
3 T milk
3 T oil (or half oil and half applesauce)
Grease the inside of a mug. Mix the dry ingredients in the mug. Combine the wet ingredients and then add them, mixing well.
Microwave on high for 3 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before turning onto a plate.
Ant was very impressed and so was I! And so I wrote it into my new recipe book. I really love it--Mum and Dad bought it for me when they were here. I filled my first cooking notebook (the pink one) a few months ago and wasn't sure what to do next. But this lovely lemon book solves my problem!
The only difference for this new notebook is that I am only going to write in recipes after I make them. I ended up with a few too many in the old book that were inspiration but that I never made.
On Dad's suggestion, here are the top recipes from "Sarah's Kitchen, Volume 1".
Ginger Noodle Soup
Beans and Bacon Casserole
Cuban Black Bean Soup
Sonya's Minted Lamb Burgers
Bacon Fried Greens
French Onion Soup
Roasted Onion & Parsnip Tarte Tatin
Spicy Red Lentil Soup
