Parenthood for Dummies
Being a father is a wild ride. My name is Christopher & these are my observations, theories & comments on life as the dad of my two boys Ripley & Jayden. I write this to air my thoughts & update my friends & family with photos, videos and such like. For everyone else I offer hints and tips on parenting as I learn them. For legal reasons I make no direct reference to my employer or any of my colleagues.

5 Minute Chocolate Penny Cake
My wife just made this for me after a hard day at the office. It tasted great and took 5 minutes to make including the 3 minutes in the microwave! No measuring, no weird ingredients you don't have.
Try it and add a comment to this post to let me know your thoughts, adaptions, etc :)
5 Minute Chocolate Penny Cake Ingredients:
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips or chopped up chocolate or anything really (optional)
a small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug
Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract (if using), and mix again.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes for a 1000 watts and 4 minutes for lesser wattage ovens. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed! Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
Let me know how you get on.
