Speaking of baking, I decided to try my own recipe for a Green Tea Mug Cake, I call it, "The Green Muddy Monster"! It was so yummy! The green tea flavour was definitely distinct but not too sweet, it was perfect. The part that makes it muddy was my homemade chocolate frosting. One word, delish!

1. Mix all of the dry ingredients together
2. Add the Milk and Vegetable Oil
3. Mix all of the ingredients together until it's a smooth consistency
4. Microwave in intervals of 30 seconds, continuously check if it's done.
