Making a Mug Cake
In the early 2000s, mug cakes became very popular in America and a few years later they were popular in The Netherlands too. I thought the idea of a cake in a mug that you could microwave in just two minutes was brilliant for a sweet tooth like me and made it for the first time a few years ago.
Unfortunately, my first chocolate microwave cake recipe didn’t turn out so well. It was not tasty at all and not even close to a fluffy mug cake. At that moment, I was done with mug cakes and didn’t think about them for a long time. It took me a few years to try again and develop a recipe for this small batch dessert.
My first (new) attempt at making a chocolate mug cake was pretty okay, but I decided to make some changes to the recipe. A few mug cakes later, I came up with a recipe that is similar to a regular chocolate cake. It’s the best mug cake I’ve ever tried. Very tasty!
It’s not exactly the same, of course. It can’t be, because the ingredients are different. Still, I was pleasantly surprised, and it proves that a microwave mug cake can be really tasty! And more important: I don’t need to bake an entire cake when I’m craving some chocolate cake.
