ej hej from Denmark! I’m a young shlucha in Copenhagen, and each month I produce a magazine in Danish (the language, not the cake) for the Jewish children in my community. Get in the Tishrei spirit and join us in making this month’s featured recipe – a honey cake in a mug which I found online. It’s quick, easy, and super duper yummy!!

Godt nytar – L’shana Tova!!

 

honey cake in a mug

 

INGREDIENTS:

MUG CAKE

2 tablespoons butter or margarine

2 tablespoons honey

1 medium egg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 tablespoons light brown sugar

4 tablespoons self-raising flour

pinch of salt

 

FROSTING

2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened

4 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar

runny honey (optional)

 

DIRECTIONS:

 

1) Put the butter in a microwave-safe mug and melt in the microwave for around 10-20 seconds.

2) Add the honey, egg and vanilla, and beat with a fork until combined.

3) Add the sugar, flour, and salt and beat again until fully combined and smooth.

4) Cook in the microwave for around 1 minute 15 seconds to 1 minute 30 seconds (depending on your microwave power).

5) Meanwhile, to make the frosting, add the butter and confectioners’ sugar to another mug and use a fork to cut the butter into the sugar until it reaches a clumpy texture.  Then beat with the fork until fluffy, around 1–2 minutes.

6) Spoon the frosting into a small piping bag or Ziploc bag and pipe a swirl onto the top of the cooled cake.

7) Drizzle with extra honey if desired and serve immediately.
