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.

Making a mug cake still requires a small amount of effort. Not a lot, but more effort than opening a package of Oreos. And you don’t have to heat up your kitchen by turning on the oven.

Talk about comfort food! The other day, I made a 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 chose a recipe from the list below and whipped up Julie’s mug cake (with a few little changes). I sprinkled some chocolate chips on top. When the chocolate chips melt, 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 microwave safe mug and make yourself a little treat! Enjoy!
