Transfiguration homework- Hargid's Rock cake

 Now some of you may  believe that what follows is potions and not transfiguration but  as Prof Snape will tell you it takes much longer then five minutes to create a potion, but if you know the proper spells you can  change uncooked ingredients into cooked goodies. Now I admit this would taste better if you did the longer potions version of this but sometimes, like Hargid you don't have the time or energy to fire up the old cauldron and spend two hours baking a cake. This is just as good for a quick snack when you can get to the kitchens to ask the house elves for a treat!
The spell is micro-onde! ( mee-crow-owned!).

 My creativity markers

The items to be transfigured
  • 2 tablespoons self raising flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 egg ( white only )
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Icing (Ready made)
  • Rock (Chocolate egg)
  • 1 large coffee mug


And the end result is a A in transfiguration

For muggles:
If you want to make this your self using a large coffee cup add the dry items (minus the chocolate egg) first then then wet. Mix together then add the  chocolate egg to the center. Place in the microwave for 3 minutes  on high. and you'll have a yummy quick cake! I didn't have the proper kind of flour for this  so it turned out smaller and fell a bit but it still tasted fine. Recipe  for this came from Blue Peter.
