We had guests over for lunch yesterday. While everything on the menu was nice and proper finalized, we were racking our brains over the dessert. I sit not always the case? The dessert is usually some Indian dish or the good old fruit cream or ice cream. I was like meh. Its anyways lunch…so dessert is practically going to be served during tea time. We were looking at something nice and classy and definitely easy!! Indian lunches are an elaborate affair 😛
My mom said to make your mug cake or something…and that’s when this Idea came to my mind. Just check out the pictures!! The stuff is super pretty looking, delicious and so easy…its actually quite funny 😉 Presenting the Half n Half 5 minute Dessert!
Table of Contents
Ingredients Required for Half n Half 5 Minute Dessert :
- 1 egg (optional)
- 1 Tablespoon good quality vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
- Handful Chopped Walnuts
- Good Swiss Filled Chocolate / Snickers/ Any other chocolate you like
- Medium sized Crystal Glasses – we will measure the following quantities of ingredients per glass. Simply multiply the ingredient quantity with a number of serving glasses.
- 2 Tablespoon All-Purpose Flour (Maida)
- 1 Tablespoon good quality Cocoa Powder (Dutch Coco is the Best)
- 2 Tablespoon Granulated Sugar
- 2 Tablespoons Milk
Method of Preparing Half n Half 5 Minute Dessert :
In a large bowl, sieve 2 tablespoons of flour per serving glass. Add the Baking powder and mix well. Now divide the flour and baking powder mixture to two equal parts. In one part, add 1 tablespoon of cocoa per serving glass. Mix well and set aside.
Now since I cheat, I use a blender and encourage you to do the same 😉 Take the sugar, egg, vanilla,walnuts,milk and the oil in a blender. Pulse well for 1 minute. You will get the wet batter ready.
Pour half of this wet batter to plain flour and the other half into the cocoa powder flour. Mix well to avoid lumping. Do not over mix or beat the batter. It will make the cakes dense.
Now on, its a simple case of assembling your dessert. In the glasses, put 2 spoons of chocolate cake batter, followed by two tablespoons of Vanilla Batter. In the center, plop in your favorite chocolate. Repeat for all glasses.
Microwave the glasses for 4 minutes or till the cake has nicely risen and the top is set.
That’s it 🙂 It is classy, simple and a crowd pleaser 😀 Let me know how this worked out for you! Share the images with me on Instagram …would love to see 🙂 Happy entertaining !!
