In a Mug

You guys. I've discovered something that could potentially be dangerous. It's the epitome of "Murica. 
Desserts in a mug. 
It's like taking all the "I'm too lazy" out of baking! All you need is a microwave and a small portion of the regular ingredients. 
Here are some of my favorites: 

This Chocolate Chip cookie in a cup from No. 2 Pencil sounds divine!

This chocolate peanut butter mug cake is killing me. 

This microwave cheesecake is great for when you don't want to ingest 23094823094 calories in one sitting. BUT it does require 60 minutes of cooling, in which case I might as well make a real cheesecake. 

This mocha brownie is the easiest thing ever. 

I couldn't leave without posting a red velvet cake. FAB. 

And of course, here is a directory of 57 tried and true mug cake recipes from Kirby's Cravings. 

Thank me later. 

Have you ever experimented with mug cakes? Do they actually live up to the hype?

  2. I'm sure the recipes have improved since the last time I tried to make a microwave mug cake. I mean, it was still good, but mine looked funny! lol. These look way better than anything I could have imagined. And a red velvet mug cake? You have succeeded in making me very hungry!

  3. Oh no , they're so mouthwatering and I want them NOW .
