Being a food blogger, I am sure you can imagine the amount of goodies that are in my kitchen. Not all of the recipes that I create make the blog either, some are experiments that don’t end up quite at my standard.
To keep myself from eating it all and for it not to go to waste I usually try a little bit of whatever the goodie is and then give the rest away or bring in to my coworkers. There are some days where I kick myself for giving all those treats away though and I NEED something for dessert.
That is where mug cakes come in. They are the perfect single serving treat that don’t leave me with a whole cake to eat and only take minutes to make. This one tastes just like a yellow cake from a box. I love topping it with whipped cream but ice cream or even plain are great too!
