Mug Cakes

Yes, I'm a little late to the party, but I have just stumbled upon MUG CAKES!  I have a sweet tooth  (don't we all) but usually I'm a salty girl.  If you put a bag of chips or a doughnut in front of me, 99% of the time I'm going to pick the chips!    But every now and again I need a little sweet.  Something small.  I loathe baking because it's so finicky and I hate the idea of having whole batch of cookies or a cake sitting out in my kitchen tempting me.

Start here if you're looking for some seriously scrumptious mug cake recipes.

I made the Flourless Peanut Butter mug cake.  I thought I was so smart to add chocolate chips, which only ended up totally melted on the bottom of the mug :)  PS I ate it so fast I didn't even have time to take a picture. 

Next I tried the Bailey's Mug Cake.  It's not surprise that I enjoy an adult beverage now and then :)  So to have an adult Mug Cake-bring it on!
As you can see I also added chocolate chips to this one.  This time they stayed on top and were a perfect addition.

Do you have a favourite mug cake recipe?  I'd love to try it out!

These sound so good! Maybe if you coated your chocolate chips in flour, they might not sink to the bottom. That usually works for me in traditional cake/muffin recipes.

I can't wait to give these a whirl myself!
