Hello, my friends! Today is an extremely important day, because a year ago today I decided to start my blog, YellowEccentricity! I started off with books, and ended up covering nearly everything, and I’m so happy with where we are now. Today, I’ve decided to make two recipes for you in celebration: a frozen hot chocolate drink and a vanilla mug cake.
Let’s get started!
So, this frozen hot chocolate recipe has literally three ingredients, and is incredibly delicious and refreshing. It’s not a chocolate milkshake, but because it uses actual hot chocolate mix, it definitely depends on the kind of mix you use.
Here’s the recipe I used:
1/2 cup (170 grams) of milk
1 packet of hot chocolate
1 cup (340 grams) of ice
Blend it all together until completely mixed, then pour into a glass. You can top it off with whipped cream or Cool Whip, and then shave some chocolate on top. What I did was try to sprinkle some cinnamon on top, but I ended up dumping quite a bit on top there. (Whoops…)
But, overall, I’m extremely impressed with the outcome, and you should definitely try this really easy recipe.
Next, I made a moist vanilla mug cake. I used a pretty big mug, so the cake looked a little smaller than it actually was, but this does make quite a bit of cake. This one definitely uses more ingredients than the frozen hot chocolate, but it’s not as tedious as making a full-sized cake.
Here is the recipe:
4 tablespoons (30 grams) flour
1/2 teaspoon (2.5 grams) baking powder
3 tablespoons (22 grams) sugar
1/2 tablespoon butter (7 grams), softened
4 tablespoons (60 grams) milk
1/2 teaspoon (2.5 grams) vanilla extract
pinch of salt
Combine all of those ingredients until smooth, then put it in the microwave for 90 seconds. About halfway through, I took the cake out and added some multicolored sprinkles to the top. When I was done, I added the following icing:
I used packaged icing and dyed it yellow, adding in some yellow crystals to give it some more texture. This cake was very soft and moist, delicious, and worth the time.
Thank you for being with me for a year of blogging, trust me, I really appreciate it! Did you try any of these recipes? How did you like them?
Wish YellowEccentricity a great first birthday in the comments!
