Macaroni and Cheese in a Mug

I am on a mission today with the “mug meals”! I am continuing my journey with homemade macaroni and cheese – in a mug! So much better than those little microwavable packets of macaroni and cheese that you can find in the grocery stores! No cheese powder here! Search my website for mug recipes for chocolate chip cookie in a mug, chocolate cake in a mug and the one I posted earlier, pizza in a mug! Who knew!? Follow along here, step by step, and let me know what you think!

Enjoy!

Pizza in a Mug

I just made pizza. In a mug. In the microwave. No – this is not a joke! It is so easy and deliciously fabulous! I topped mine with cheese but feel free to top with whatever you desire! Precooked sausage, precooked hamburger, pepperoni – endless possibilities! Here it is, step by step…

Enjoy!

2-Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

Yesterday, I made an AMAZING chocolate cake…in a MUG…in the microwave! Yes – you read that right!

I am not sure I had ever had anything like this before. AND I admit that I was (at first) a little…against the fact of making a cake in the microwave. I figured – why make a cake in a MUG when you could make a regular size cake and eat on it for days!?

Well, I am “seeing the light” now, and I understand why people would want a “mug cake”. It is easy, fast, individual sized, and so delicious!

The recipe I used came from “Lucky Peach”. I have included the recipe below – but here is their official posting, recipe and story… http://lky.ph/post/43087441437/mug-cake-for-lonelyhearts

Lucky Peach’s Two-Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons white all-purpose flour
4 tablespoons white granulated sugar
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tablespoons semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 small or medium coffee mug (microwave safe)

Add the egg, milk and vegetable oil to a small or medium coffee mug and whisk together. Next, add the white all-purpose flour, white granulated sugar, and unsweetened cocoa powder, and mix thoroughly until everything is combined. Finally, add in the chocolate chips, pure vanilla extract and salt and mix again.

Put your mug into a 1000-watt microwave for 2 minutes.

The cake might rise over the top of the mug, but do not be alarmed.

Allow to cool and tip out onto a plate if desired.

EAT! This can serve two. 

Note: Mine served one – me. 

Enjoy!
