My family has a wicked sweet tooth. Oh, and they are indiscriminate. If it’s sugary, they’ll eat it. I, however, am a little more discerning. I try to limit myself to once a week and small portions.
This is how I became obsessed with Microwavable Mug Cakes. Admittedly, it took a little while to find the right balance of ingredients, timing and containers that would create a moist, fluffy cake.
I usally use my Godiva superwide mug and cook for 2 minutes but I wanted to create something fun for the holiday.
For this, I needed an extra 15 seconds but set your timer for 2 minutes (since power varies) and take a look.
