This year we are celebrating Mother's day by sharing recipes from the families of the OLG team. Food is a love language and a home cooked meal made by your caregiver or loved one means so much.
Recipe from OLG team member Vanessa by her mum, Janetta
An easy peasy mug recipe:
2 mugs of plain flour
1 mug of sugar
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 mug of milk
half of the mug of oil
+ you can add a lemon zest and vanilla extract to be posh 😆
Measure out ingredients and mix everything together in a mixing bowl
Pour half of the batter into the loaf tin
Add the cocoa to the rest of the batter (I usually go by taste)
Pour the batter mixed with cocoa into the baking tin and then bake the cake at 180°C for about 45min until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
Turn out onto a cooling rack and leave to cool
