Please tell me you’ve all made a mug cake. I don’t know who first discovered making a single-serving cake in the microwave, but I would like to hug them. Ben and I are all about moderation – eating sweets and treats but in moderation. So a single-serving cake is the perfect solution. It’s not there tempting you 24/7. It still requires a small amount of effort. Not a lot, but more effort than opening a package of Oreos.

The other day, I made the very vanilla mug cake from Table for Two for Ben. He was having one of those days — exhausted, stressed. I wanted to do something for him and everyone knows the way to a man’s heart is his stomach. So I whipped up Julie’s mug cake (with a few little changes) and sprinkled some chocolate chips on top. Give them a second to melt and they’re basically chocolate frosting. And it just so happens that white cake with chocolate frosting is Ben’s favorite. Happy man!

Grab your favorite mug and make yourself a little treat! Enjoy!
