Chances are that you’ve received (or purchased) a promotional coffee mug in your lifetime. And while mugs are traditionally thought of as vessels for hot beverages like tea or coffee, there’s a bunch of other things you can do with your ceramic mugs including one of my favorites: bake a cake.
I don’t know about you, but I like single servings of things. Put an entire cake in front of me and I’ll probably eat it all. But bake a cake in a mug and boom: automatic portion control.
(Can we talk about how excited I was to find a picture of a mug cake that’s actually in a promotional mug? It’s the little things.)
I was inspired to write this post by an article that I saw in Buzzfeed about snacks you can cook in a mug. Then I went onto Pinterest just to see what mug cakes I could find and, unsurprisingly, there are boards upon boards dedicated to recipes of cakes you can make in mugs.
There are tons of decadent desserts but one that really stuck out to me was this 100 calorie 2 minute mug cake. I have all the ingredients at home and you bet that I’m going home tonight and baking up (nuking up?) one of these tonight. I’ll report back.
