Minute Muffins!

When a craving for something special hits, who has time to make a batch of cookies or brownies or wait for things to refrigerate overnight? Not us. You want dessert and you want it now! That’s why we make single-serve mug cakes that can be ready in as little as a minute in most microwaves! Did you know that you could make a cake in the microwave? Well you can and we are here to show you how!

Most mug cake recipes only require you to mix all the ingredients in the recipe together in a bowl, pour them into a microwave-safe mug, and then heat. It really doesn’t get any easier than that! The personal-sized cakes cook in about 1-2 minutes, depending on the strength of your microwave. Once cooked, they are immediately ready to eat. No waiting for cakes to cool when you make a mug cake recipe- two minutes and you’re done.

There are actually lots and lots of different kinds of mug cakes that you can try. The flavors range from berry-filled cakes to chocolate treats and everything in between. Try the lemon blueberry mug cake on a warm summer’s night or the eggnog mug cake around the holiday’s- mug cakes are great for any time of year! Once you have mastered the mug cake, you can branch out into the mug brownie, mug cookie, and even mug cupcakes. You better make sure your microwave safe mugs are clean and ready to go as they are about to get a lot of use!
