Sometimes, you just gotta have cake. But there are some days when you don’t feel up for eating a whole cake, a la Bruce Bogtrotter from Matilda, and on those days, you need a mug cake. This is the fudgiest, gooiest, most scrumptious cake I’ve ever had, and would love to share it with you.

  • 3 tbsp plain flour
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 row of Sweet Williams original chocolate, broken into small pieces
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp Nesquik (or equivalent chocolate powder)
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 3 tbsp soy milk
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 1.5 tbsp peanut butter

In a medium-large mug, mix together the dry ingredients, ensuring no clumps of flour.

Add in the chocolate pieces.

Mix in the wet ingredients (leave canola oil for last). Mix in 1 tbsp peanut butter.

Dollop 1/2 tbsp peanut butter on top.

Microwave on high for approximately 1 minute (less if you want extra gooey).

Devour the deliciousness!!!!

my first tofu scramble

tofu scramble

After three years of seeing different recipes and going “hmm that looks good”, I finally made a tofu scramble. Essentially it’s kinda like scrambled eggs, but without eating something from a chicken’s bum and killing hundreds of tiny chicks in the process.

You will need…

  • 1/2 small sweet potato
  • 1 small potato
  • 75g (or more) firm tofu
  • 1/4 onion
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • turmeric
  • cumin
  • oregano
  • mild chilli flakes
  • dash of soy sauce
  • sesame oil (or olive)

How to make it:

  1. Dice potatoes and steam/boil in microwave or on stove
  2. Crumble tofu into small pieces (resembling scrambled eggs)
  3. Saute diced onion in frying pan with garlic and sesame oil
  4.  Add tofu, soy sauce and seasonings, and cook for a few minutes
  5. Pour in now cooked potatoes and cook with additional ingredients (add more soy sauce/seasonings if needed) for a few more minutes
  6. When it’s to your preferred taste and seems cooked well enough, serve how you wish (e.g. with greens, toast, pepper, grilled tomato, etc.)

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
