MICROWAVE JAFFA MUG CAKES

Microwave choc orange mug cakesThese  littles cakes were originally created by my sweet tooth father after he was craving something chocolately and the oven was broken. I have been playing around with this recipe for a while and have created my own Jaffa (Chocolate and Orange) version made using (microwave safe) soup mugs. Enjoy!

What you will need:
8 tablespoons butter
1 cup caster sugar
1 teaspoon orange essence
1/4 cup orange juice
2 cups of self raising flour
1/2 cup Dutch cocoa
2 eggs
Chocolate Drizzle;
1 cup icing sugar
200 grams milk chocolate melted
1/2 cup orange juice

Microwave choc orange mug cakes

What to do:
In a large bowl beat together 6 tablespoons of butter with 1 cup of caster sugar. Add in the orange essence, orange juice and eggs, Continue to beat. Sift in the flour and cocoa and beat until a smooth batter forms. Grease your mugs with a little butter and pour in the batter. about 2/3 full. Cook for around 2 minutes. Turn your cakes out into a bowl and drizzle with the chocolate orange glaze. To make the glaze simply whisk together the melted chocolate, sifted icing sugar and orange juice. Makes around 4 mug cakes.

    This looks so delicious. Too bad I can’t cook (I hate myself for that). Okay, I can’t resist but ask you a question? How can you take such AMAZING, SPECTACULAR photographs? I’ve been meaning to ask for a while, but everytime I top by your blog, you have these out-of-the-world stunning photographs. I feel like a mouse at times! :)

      Haha thanks. Honestly just a lot of practice, a super talented brother to teach me and some good books about food photography ;)
      And i bet you can cook! I mess up alot! Only the things that work make it to the blog so don’t think you have to be 100% perfect all the time, cooking is a lot of trial and error xo

      • stilettosandtequila May 14, 2013 at 10:53 pm #

        Wow your brother seems to be a very talented photographer himself. Not to mention his super genius sister too. haha.. :)
        Ohh don’t say. The only thing I can make is tea, coffee, instant noodles, toast, fries and omlette. Maybe a sandwich too. My mom is screaming at me because I haven’t picked up any cooking skills from her. Both my parents are amazing cooks, but (unfortunately) I inherited none from them. haha :D

        Naww <3
        Haha I had to learn to cook out of necessity, both my parents are awful cooks haha pretty sure if they weren't I never would have started ;)

      • stilettosandtequila May 14, 2013 at 11:21 pm #

        Well you are a fabulous cook. Those desserts are eye-popping delicious! haha ;)
