Anyway they went under strict instructions to amuse themselves for an hour while I did some work on Monday: no craft kits, arguing or mithering were the three main instructions. I tried to plan my teaching lessons for this coming week. I could hear the microwave going from upstairs in the office but thought I was going to be in for a strange cup of luke warm tea.
But a sheepish Big Sis came up and said their 'cake in a mug' had gone a bit wrong. We all got one of these mugs from my neighbour for Christmas. Handily it has the recipe on the outside and it claims 'cake is only 3 minutes away'
After laughing and talking the recipe through it turns out they did not know some key baking knowledge namely:
- The abbreviations for spoon measurements
- What cinnamon looked like so they used cinnamon sugar
- How much oil to put in (spoon error)
- Forgot the banana so put it in at the end in chunks!
To impress me they 'fessed up to eating some chocolate chips straight from the packet before putting the rest in.
I know what you are thinking. Did I eat it? Of course I did!!!
