I’m quickly becoming addicted to my pick for this week’s “Cookbook Corner” – and I have a feeling YOU will to! This week’s “Cookbook Corner” is…
“Mug Cakes” By: Mima Sinclair
I just discovered my love of mug cakes about 2 months ago. I’ll admit that really, up to that point – I hadn’t thought about them. I mean – who wants to go to the time and trouble of a cake, which you bake in a mug, and only get to enjoy a short bit? Wouldn’t everyone want a regular size cake, which can be enjoyed and eaten for days!?
No. This isn’t always the case.
I am actually in LOVE with mug cakes.
Everything that you thought you knew about mug cakes – forget it!
The recipes in this book are delicious, easy and so versatile that you won’t believe it!
I have to credit a friend of mine in my favorite Facebook group “The Cookbook Junkies” for introducing me to the whole mug cake concept.
I tried my first one – and was hooked!
This book is divided up into 4 main sections – Classics, Occasions, Happy Hour and Treats. I also appreciate the fact that there is a very well written and well thought out introduction – giving you the “do’s and don’ts of mug cake baking… which yes – I needed at first. BUT – once you get started…it only gets easier! 😉
And yes – I may have memorized a chocolate mug cake recipe where I don’t really even need to measure the ingredients out anymore… I’ve made it that much… Ha! 😉
The recipes in this book are “mug CAKES” but there are just as many recipes for brownies, breads and muffins that can also be made in mugs! How fabulous – right!?
The recipes in this book are delicious and the ones I’ve tried – work every time! Recipes included are amazing recipes such as “Chocolate and Peanut Butter” (page 17), “Gingerbread” (page 22), “Chocolate Brownie” (page 25), “Banana Bread” (page 26), “Blueberry Muffin” (page 30), “Strawberries and Cream Cake” (page 41), “Lemon and Poppyseed Drizzle” (page 44), “Red Velvet Cake” (page 53), “Coke Float” (page 60), “Salted Carmel and Chocolate” (page 72), “Sticky Toffee” (page 81 – delicious! And still amazing without the dates) and “Upside-Down Apple and Cinnamon Cake”!
Can you believe all of those cakes are made in the microwave – in a mug!? I know, I know…I still can’t believe it. Amazing.
