This week on RMK it’s summer snack attack week. With the kiddos out of school I am sure you have heard this question as often as me “What can I have for a snack?” I have the usual popsicles, crackers, fruit, string cheese etc. but it is now to the point where we need something new. So if your kids need a snack why not have them make something.
It gets them the snack they are looking for, helps them learn cooking skills, and keeps them busy for a bit.
Today’s recipe is a quick cake you whip up in the microwave. I happen to make a blueberry version, but you could use raspberries, blackberries, peaches, etc in it’s place. I also used nuts but you can leave them out, or chocolate chips would be a nice substitute. 🙂 Yummy, I love this quick cake!
Minute Blueberry Cake
- 3 Tbsp all purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- pinch of salt
- pinch of cinnamon
- 1 Tbsp canola oil
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 1 Tbsp plus 1 tsp milk
- a few blueberries
- a few chopped walnuts
- a little ice cream of whipped cream, optional
- In a small bowl , combine the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, oil, sugar, and milk. Pour the mixture into a ramekin or other small microwave safe dish. Spread evenly to cover the bottom of the dish.
- Sprinkle with a few blueberries and nuts. Then microwave for 1 minute. That’s it. Enjoy it warm with a little ice cream or whipped cream if you’d like.
