Microwave Mug Cakes...
My friend told me about the website Food Gawker and was astonished that I had never seen it (it's amazing!). He said he's made 2 minute microwave cakes from it, so I looked them up that night. I've seen recipes for microwave cakes before, but they were all made with loads of fake stuff: fake eggs, fake sugar, fake milk.
But that night I stumbled upon Chocolate Covered Katie and found loads of mug cake recipes (along with a myriad other chocolatey goodies) all made healthy, yet real.
This mug cake wasn't exactly like hers, and I should have let the chocolate soften a bit so it melted on top like a frosting. But it was a lovely start to my day.
I tried a coffee cake the next day- the photo looked divine! But mine didn't cook, so I put it in for longer, and it came out really congealed (although it tasted good). I think it must be because I used mashed banana instead of applesauce or oil. Next time, I'll just follow Katie's instructions and stick with the oil...
But go and check it out! It's full of bars, cookies, cupcakes and pies... and why not have a mug cake while you're at it... cakey goodness all to yourself...
