In a bowl, whisk together self-raising flour, plain flour, milk, sugar, the melted butter and vanilla until well combined. Divide the mixture evenly between four 200ml microwave safe mugs. Arrange the mugs on the microwave plate and pop the microwave on high for three minutes until the cake is cooked and a skewer comes out clean (If using a small microwave, cooking in two batches may be needed). Let cool.
Using a 2cm round cutter, cut a 5cm deep hole in the middle of each cake. Dollop one teaspoon of raspberry conserves into each hole. In a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, combine the icing sugar, butter and milk and stir until it's glossy. Pop a few drops of pink food colouring into it and pour the icing on top of the mug cake to form the doughnut look. Decorate with sprinkles and let set, then serve!
And voila! Quirky and so 2018! Looks like it took loads of time but was in fact as simple as 1,2,3! Ready in no time and a great way to impress some last-minute dinner guests, just call us 'Come Dine With Me'! Maybe we should try a cookie version and add Gookie Dough? Let us know what you think in the comments below. *Recipe credit to foodtolove.com.au*
We love sprinkles and our Gookie Dough funfetti cake batter proves that. However, it's time to stop buying shop-bought sprinkles which are loaded with sugar, oils and artificial colouring and have some fun making your own rainbow sprinkles which are super unicorn goodness! Cooking time? NADA!

You will need:
150g of icing sugar
One tablespoon of cornstarch
One and a half tablespoons of water
One tablespoon of light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Gel food colouring
What to do
(Image credit: Bakepedia)
In a medium-sized bowl, stir together 100g of icing sugar along with the cornstarch, water, corn syrup and vanilla extract until well-combined. Then stir in the remaining icing sugar
Add the food colouring and stir until well combined and the desired colour is reached. Just a quick note: the more food colouring that is adding, the more artificial it shall taste so aim for pastel.
Transfer the mixture to a piping bag which is fitted with a relatively small tip. Line two baking trays with parchment paper and using your piping bag, draw long sprinkle-width lines across the paper. You can also make small dots for shape variety.

Allow setting for at least 12 hours so they dry thoroughly. Once dry, peel off dots or shapes and use a knife to cut down the lines to make the sprinkles as big or small as you'd like. And there you go!
A super mermaid explosion and you can show off your creation with a dash of magic in any dessert or sweet treat you make. Toast? Add those sprinkles. Cupcake? A shimmer of colour. The options are endless! Gookie Dough? Roll it in your homemade sprinkles. We love unicorn poop.
One pack of candy melts for coating (in pastel colours or anything that takes your fancy)
Decorations such as sprinkles, finely chopped nuts and melted chocolate for drizzling
Lollipop sticks or wooden sticks

Firstly, line a baking tray with parchment paper and in a large bowl, remove all the Gookie Dough out of the tub and mix it with the vanilla extract with an electric whisk until it is thoroughly combined. Cover the bowl and put in the fridge for 20 to 30 minutes.
Scoop a bit of the chilled dough up with an ice cream scoop and use your hands to shape it into a smooth ball. Pop it onto the lined baking tray and repeat with the remaining cookie dough. This should make quite a few cake pops (unless you can't resist eating it all from the bowl).
Melt the candy melts in a small, deep bowl in the microwave and follow the directions on the pack to ensure it is completed correctly.
Dip the end of one of the lollipop sticks into the candy melt and then insert that end about 1/2 inch into a Gookie Dough ball. Repeat this with the remaining sticks and dough balls. Now place the tray of cookie dough balls in the freezer until completely solid.

Re-melt the candy melts and place a block of styrofoam on the countertop. Dip each ball into the melted candy and turn, letting all the excess drip back into the bowl. Now decorate. Sprinkle with finely chopped nuts, sprinkles or sugar strands. Make it rainbow and magical!
Carefully insert the end of the lollipop stick into the styrofoam block to allow the cake pops to set correctly. Repeat with the remaining cookie dough pops. Place the cookie dough pops back on the tray or wrap in lollipop wrappers and store in the fridge.
Simple, delicious, spring-like and adorable. Dress them up and give them as a gift. Perfect for picnics and the odd occasion, they're bound to go down an absolute treat. And because they're made with Gookie Dough, even better!
To celebrate the long weekend of relaxing at home while the outdoors are below freezing, we have a little treat for you which requires no baking, is quick, easy and fun! Cookie Dough Pretzel Bites (with the use of Gookie Dough, obviously). If you want something moreish which tantalises the tastebuds in the sweet and salty kind of way, then you need to try these! Absolutely perfect when watching Netflix in bed.

You will need:
Gookie Dough in a flavour of your choice
Pretzels (plain in whatever size you'd like, I'd say the bigger, the better!)
350g of milk chocolate chips
Sprinkles and other extra such as edible gold dust to decorate
Leave your Gookie Dough out at room temperature, so it softens and is easier to work with. It is recommended that you leave it out for about two hours. Take the Gookie Dough and roll it into tiny balls about a teaspoon each. Sandwich between two pretzels and pop on a plate, then put them in the freezer for thirty minutes.

Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave (about 30 seconds) and dip half of each pretzel sandwich into the chocolate. Alternatively, you can dip it all in and use a spoon to fish it out. Decorate with sprinkles to make it super fancy. Pop on a tray which is lined with parchment paper and put in the freezer to chill so they can set fully. Store the pretzel bites in the fridge before serving.
We know that it can be tedious staying at home, even though we should enjoy the opportunity. However, March has arrived, so can you please sort yourself out, Mother Nature? These beauties are also ideal for special occasions because after all, who doesn't like Gookie Dough? We have Easter coming up so try using Pastel sprinkles instead and tip in melted mini eggs!
