A Mug Is Not Always Just For Tea

We truly understand that life is super busy – but we still fundamentally believe that we should never be too busy to completely overlook what you choose to fuel your body and mind. If time is getting away from you, keep your choices simple - sometimes a humble meal made from real ingredients and whole foods, speak for themselves and can be absolutely delicious! Treats also do not always need to be in the off limit basket when looking for the something yummy – especially to go with a good brew. By just looking at a quick and easy home-made option, you will avoid the 'nasties' that often accompany store bought goodies. Remember the less food is processed, the better it is for you! Our commitment is to inspire healthy choices for our mind, body, soul and the environment we live in. What is your commitment to you - not just for today but for tomorrow? So if you are time poor, but looking for something that big and little kids will thank you for – then get creative, grab a mug and the below 8 simple ingredients and voila! Steep, eat and enjoy – with your favourite Madura brew of course.  

A Modest Chocolate Treat


1/4 cup all-purpose flour (we love spelt) 2 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder or Cacao if preferred 1/4 teaspoon baking powder 2 tablespoon granulated sugar (you can add 1 tbsp. more if you like it a bit sweeter or try coconut sugar – YUM!) 1/8 teaspoon salt 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp. milk (of your choice) 2 tablespoon olive oil 1 tablespoon of mini chocolate chips (we love dark)


In a medium bowl, whisk together dry ingredients, gradually add in the milk and oil and mix until all ingredients are combined and there are no clumps. Pour batter into a microwave-safe mug – remembering you will need enough head space for the cake to rise without pouring over (too much). Add chocolate chips in the middle of the batter no need to push or mix it down and sink it in the batter. It does that on its own when it cooks! Place a paper towel into the microwave and set the mug on top (this is to catch any batter if your mug cake overflows). Microwave mug cake for 70 seconds on high (Please note that ALL microwaves are different therefore can yield different results and can overcook this mug cake if you are not careful). Carefully remove from microwave and enjoy!   Inspired from: Table for Two Shop Now
