Baking: Mug Cake

I love to eat cakes! Who doesn’t? But most of the time, I would be too lazy to go to the cafe and buy one, because, i need to spend time to get ready, you know, dressing up, put on some makeup (even though my daily make up routine only consists of powder, eyeliner and lip stick) and go out JUST to buy the cake, it is not worth it (i need around 1 hour to get ready, and buying cake will take me 5 minutes, the journey will be around 30 minutes, you do the math, it is just not worth it).

I don’t mind baking at home, in fact, i do enjoy baking. But baking cake, a whole cake, is not worth it. You see, it is only me and my husband at home plus, cake that is 2-3 days old is┬ánot that yummy. How about cup cakes? Well, we don’t have cup cakes/ muffin tins at home, and a batch of cup cakes usually consists of 6 cup cakes, which are still too much for both of us. In the end, i just suppress my craving because it is just not worth it.

But, my life had changed! Yesterday, while browsing youtube, i stumble into a “mug cake” cake video. Well, baking cake, in a mug, using microwave! I heard about it before, but i just don’t give a damn. You know, cake in a microwave, hmm, that doesn’t sound like cake at all. Anyway, i gave it a try. It took me awhile to find recipe that is easy and trustworthy. So i found this ‘Chocolate Peanut Butter Mug Cake’ recipe. It is delicious, but i increased the baking time to 2 minutes and 20 seconds with my 700w microwave. I definitely will try the recipe again, but i may increase the amount of peanut butter.

No picture for now, as my mug is too ugly for a blog, will upload picture once i bake this recipe, again, in a nicer mug.
