Cartoons, cartoons, cartoons.... John Crowther's Cartoon Odyssey

I think of it as The Fool's Journey. I've been asked who the "fool" is. It's me, but in the classical sense of the court jester. Only the fool was allowed to tell the king of his follies. All cartoons are available as prints or originals, framed or unframed, through my website or e-mail. For mugs, t-shirts, and other products visit my gift shop at* (be sure to include the *).

One For the Road

Along with the jokes, funny pictures, inspirational vignettes, prayers, and links to YouTube videos I receive in my e-mail daily from well-meaning friends, the other day I got a recipe for something called Mug Cake. Curious, I decided to give it a try, and by golly, it works. All you need is a coffee mug, an egg, a few tablespoons of flour, sugar, cocoa, milk, and oil, optional nuts and chocolate chips and a dash of vanilla extract. You mix the ingredients together in the mug, and put it in the microwave for three minutes. This is true Devil Cake, since you're never more that five minutes away from warm chocolate cake.

The Mug Cake sounds delish John. I wonder if it would work as well with rice or corn flour instead of wheat flour... and xylitol instead of sugar. I'll try it and let you know.

It's certainly worth a try, Jean. I'm guessing if it works for regular cake it'll work for this. BTW, the measurements are:
Flour and sugar, 4 tbs. each
Cocoa, 2 tbs.
1 egg
Milk and oil, 3 tbs. each
Nuts and/or chocolate chips and/or raisins as desired.
A splash of vanilla extract, but I bet some rum extract would be interesting.
