Mug Cake-The Perfect Dessert For One
Picture it. There you are sitting, minding your own business, watching TV, when all of the sudden it happens. The snack attack. You wander around your kitchen looking for something that will appease the snack attack monster. Nothing you see will do.
You could bake a cake, but, there is only you. Think of the waste. You'd end up throwing away half of it. Or even worse, you'd end up eating it all yourself and add those ugly pounds to your hips. What's a person to do.
The answer is simple. Make a mug cake. What's a mug cake? It's a cake you bake or microwave in a mug. It's the perfect size for someone who lives alone and just can't do without that snack. I takes a matter of minutes to put together and cook, especially when you use the microwave. Mug cakes give you the satisfaction of having a home baked snack without all of the waste or temptation of eating too much.
Make sure you add those little touches after the cake is cooked. You know what I mean, the whipped cream, the sprinkles, maybe a strawberry or some chocolate chips. The sky's the limit. Make it your own.
