For awhile now I have wanted to try out the cake in a mug recipe for myself. I told my son about it and he was just as excited to try it as I was. My mission was to see how fast and good it actually was and to only use things I had on hand. I whipped up the mix with my Cusinart hand blender (nothing I hate more than lumpy mix). Use the largest mug that you have on hand. And remember that when your cake is cooking in the microwave it will rise up high, do not worry about it that’s normal and it will go down. I placed a dollop of nutella with some sprinkles on top and we enjoyed a nice little late night treat. My overall opinion of the cake is that is has an almost brownie like consistency but its great for a craving to whip up fast. I plan to tinker with this recipe and get some really great outcomes here soon.
