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
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
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
4 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
runny honey (optional)
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.
