Your Kitchen Friends
Our guests often ask for recipes from the Latigo Ranch kitchen.  We plan to post a new recipe here regularly. 

Lisa searches for recipe ideas and often finds new recipes to try, and if we like them, Randy experiments to figure out how to make them work when preparing them for 30+ guests.  Sometimes what we end up with is quite different from the original  and other times we make little change.  

Since most of you don't live at 9,000 ft. above sea level like we do, we have adjusted the recipes for baked goods for low altitude.  If you do need to correct for higher altitudes, please feel free to email us for suggestions.

Enjoy your cooking, eating, and friendship around the table.

Recipe of the Week

Chocolate Mug Cake

Sunday, March 22, 2009

4 T flour
4 T sugar
2 T baking cocoa
3 T chocolate chips

1 egg
3 T milk
3 T canola oil
¼ t vanilla

1 large coffee mug

Stir the dry ingredients together well, mix the wet in.  Pour into a greased coffee mug.  Microwave for 3 minutes.  Allow to cool a bit and then turn out onto a plate if you wish.  (It’s hard to eat it with ice cream otherwise).  I found that a 2 C mug is the right size for a full recipe.  That’s just right for someone like Spencer, but it would be too much for normal folks.  I tried dividing this recipe between two regular mugs, and that was just right.  I still cooked it for 3 minute each but probably could have gone with 2 ½.
