This little ebook is aptly named!
There it was in the free section on the Amazon Kindle website. Who can resist a picture of cake? The curiosity of the book captured my attention. Baking in the microwave? Cakes and desserts for one? What sorcery is this? I ‘thumbed’ through the ebook and was surprised at the ease of the recipes. They looked simple and delicious. What could be easier?
One night I was in the mood for a small dessert, something chocolaty to go with watching some new episode of some paranormal show that was on. I found “Chocolate Mug Cake” amongst the recipes as an add-on. Following the directions, I prepared it for two: mix dry ingredients, mix wet and combine the two, pour into mugs and microwave for 2 minutes. Well the recipe did not disappoint! Whomever wrote and created this ebook deserves some sort of award! Although the mugcake was too rich (there should be a warning!) it was delicious and hit the spot. Try it with vanilla ice cream. Heaven.
I would recommend this for singles, couples cutting down on calories and anyone just wanting a bite of something sweet.
