Super Simple Milo Mug Cake Recipe For Kids

Once Ayub was done with his Spaghetti Aglio Olio for picky eaters, we moved on to making dessert! Yay. Originally he wanted to make an ice cream sandwich. I love how he thinks I’m the kinda mom who knows how to make ice cream sandwiches. I am not. Plus the recipe called for an oven and ours is broken 🙁

So instead he made a milo mug cake! Shoutout to Mr Ninja for driving to three different stores on a Sunday evening to look for flour and sugar. Lol.

I don’t know what this is supposed to look like but it did not look very nice. Hahahaha. Ayub and Sulaiman ate it up and said it was suuuuuuper yummmmmyyyyyy! It’s like a moist milo sponge cake I guess.

If you have a better recipe please tell me thanks.

Ayub was very proud of himself for making both the spaghetti and milo mug cake on his own. And I’m very proud of him too. Good job baby!
