What do you do when you desperately need a slice of cake but can't bake?
Coffee Mug Cakes is here to support you. Whether it's too hot to use your gas oven, you fear having an entire cake in your home, or you plain just don't have the skills required, you've come to the right place.
Coffee Mug Cakes is the only source of strictly microwaveable mug cake recipes, not muffins or gooey brownies. Plus, these recipes for quick desserts don't require a mixing bowl or whisk. Because why should the cleanup to take longer than the baking?
Chelsea from Coffee Mug Cakes sent me the Coffee Mug Cakes Cookbook to try out. The CMC Cookbook details 26 recipes with a variety of cake flavors, including hazelnut raspberry, red velvet, chocolate banana walnut and ginger. The cookbook makes a great gift for any foodie in your life!
Their are some pretty awesome recipes in this book! The trick that I learned awfully quickly was to make sure you use the right mug. I made this mistake the first time I tried to make a cake and it overflowed... oopsie! The first cake I decided to try was the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip cake! DELICIOUS!! The texture is different then a normal cake. It's a bit more dense rather than the typical fluffy cake. I also whipped up a little chocolate drizzle with a bit of butter and some semi sweet chocolate chips. Yum!
Although I haven't tried it, this White Chocolate Raspberry Cake sounds scrumptious!
