Cupcakes in a Mug - Recipe

Here is the promised recipe (adapted from the Busy Day Cake by Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook.)

1 tbsp whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup milk
1 egg white
2 tbsp butter, softened
1/2 tsp vanilla

Heat oven to 350°. Mix all ingredients in a bowl and pour into greased container. Bake for 20-30 minutes depending on size.

Audrey's Tasks:
  1. Help mom measure and place ingredients in bowl
  2. Mix
  3. Spoon mix into mugs
Mom's Tasks:
  1. Gather ingredients
  2. Heat oven
  3. Help measure and mix
  4. Place mugs in oven
This was fun as Audrey is starting to pay more attention where she is pouring instead of getting ingredients everywhere. She did not get to crack an egg this time as we needed to separate the white and she is still learning how not to crush the egg from the shell. After the cupcakes cooled I let her pour powdered sugar from a shaker on to and then pink sprinkles (forgot to add food coloring before they cooked.)
