Cup O’ Easter Cake! Yes please!

Easter is almost here and it is time to start preparing the festive goodies and what better way than to get the kiddies involved.

Apart from a traditional Easter egg hunt in the garden, why not get the kids in the kitchen to try their hand at making their own sweet treats and spoil mom and dad this year.

Here is one of the simplest recipes for them to try and it doesn’t even involve the stove.


  • 4x Tablespoons of cake flour
  • 4x Tablespoons of sugar
  • 2x Tablespoons of cocoa
  • 1x egg
  • 3x Tablespoons milk
  • 3 x Tablespoons canola oil
  • Handful of chocolate chips


Grease a “microwave safe” large coffee cup with butter or cooking spray.

Step 1: Add flour, sugar, cocoa to the coffee mug.

Step 2: Stir together to combine.

Step 3: Add the egg, milk and oil.

Step 4: Sprinkle chocolate chips on top.

Step 5: Stir carefully and continue to stir until well blended.

Step 6: Cook on high in the microwave for 3 minutes.

Step 7: Top with ice cream or whipped cream and more chocolate chips or a sprinkle of cocoa and serve! However, in keeping with the Easter theme, kids can sprinkle a handful of speckled eggs onto the top of the whipped cream or ice cream to give it a festive Easter look or pipe a cute bunny face on top using a marshmallow cut into two thin disks (cut diagonally using kitchen scissors) and place on top as a pair of bunny ears.

Happy Easter!
