Hit Your Cake Craving With The Microwave
June 4, 2013 57 Comments
Snack Girl is probably the last person to attempt to cook in a mug in the microwave.
I’m just not that hip.
The truth is that I tried some egg recipes and they turned out rubbery, so I decided to forget it. Then, I had a bunch of readers share their cake mug recipes and I changed my mind.
I like my cake in slices (preferably with lots of frosting) so I wasn’t sure I was going to like this. All of the ingredients were in my pantry and it takes less than 4 minutes from start to finish.
(I was a little disappointed that I had to use a bowl AND a mug because I don’t like to clean up.)
Guess what? This tastes pretty good. I liked it so much that I scarfed it down after I had just eaten breakfast. Cake for breakfast? Why not if it is only a banana, egg, cocoa powder, and sugar. I'm doing much better than if I had a bowl of Lucky Charms.
The downside here is for the banana haters out there. This does taste like bananas. I will keep working on this concept if it is well received because not only is it easy, but it is fun to turn out a cake in 3 minutes.
Have you tried making cake in a mug? Please share.
