If you have small kids that love cup cakes, this book is a way to satisfy the demand without making a dozen or more that often get wasted after the novelty of the cup cake has worn off. Plus as an added attraction, you make the desserts in the microwave in a mug. Easy and quick and generally no fuss and muss.

You'll find clever recipes like Banana Nana Microwave Mug Cake to a delicious Heavenly Chocolate Microwave Mug Cake. The beginning of the book contains a suggested pantry list for that spur of the moment Mug Cake craving. Many who bake with some regularity will already have either all or most of the ingredients which include basics like flour, sugar, cocoa powder, instant puddings, milk, eggs, oil and the like. Actually, the one thing I didn't have was a 16 ounce mug which works best for the liquids and the cooking.

The cakes are quick to make and are large enough to satisfy two or three toddlers. The author does tell you not to save any leftovers as they become hard and heavy. This is true. These are designed to be eaten right away. The aroma of your mug cake will certainly having you grabbing a spoon and eating it right out of the microwave!

I got this book as a gift and thought it was a cute idea, but the recipes in this book are horrible tasting! My kids would not eat them. The cakes turn into little bricks if allowed to cool. If you eat them warm they taste ok, but have horrible texture. You are better off with a box mix, making cupcakes, and sticking them in the freezer. Then just eat one when you want it.

I decided that 10 minutes to a single serving of cake that i could easily hide from my hubby and not share sounded WAY too good to pass up. So I attempted to make one of these cakes.... And... I'm a pretty darn good cook. My cooking success rate is... up around 95%... Even higher if you don't count times I got distracted and slightly overcooked something... So, I went and followed all of the instructions, and I thought to myself, "Gosh, one entire egg for an 1/8 of the amount of ingredients that usually only require 2 or 3 eggs? That's a lot of egg." but I continued on in earnest... I was excited when the batter began rising in the cup after only a minute or so of microwaving... I thought, "I'm doing it! I'm making a freaking cake in the microwave!" and I felt a lot like Dr. Frankenstein... Seriously, I was waiting for the clap of thunder and the flash of lightning and the eerie calliope music to start up at any moment and then DING! It's done! I waited the prerequisite 2 minutes before upending the mug and letting my cake slide out... I waited a couple more minutes for the cake to cool enough to put a single dollop of frosting on top... And... I tasted it.

SO DISAPPOINTED. You know how the best thing about cake is that it's light and fluffy and CAKEY? Like a delicious sponge covered in frosting that practically melts in your mouth?

This is not it. This is quite nearly a brick and almost as bland. It smells like chocolate, yes, there is a hint of chocolate... but it is not nearly sweet enough to be considered chocolate cake... and it is so heavy and dense that I could not get through more than a few bites.

Upon letting said cake sit next to me at the computer while I wrote this review, the cake continued to harden. And harden. And harden.

I tested Chocolate Coconut Mug Cake. I used a 1 cup glass measuring cup instead of a mug. I used non-fat sour cream and made it once with a real egg and once with Kirkland (from Costco) egg substitute (99% egg white)- which worked okay for me. I also had to rotate it myself every 30 seconds or so because my microwave does not have a turntable. And one biggie: I live at an elevation a little over 5000 feet (which would have the effect of making it a bit lighter - if that is possible). It would have been better if I had some frosting for it. But my adult son and I concluded that something warm and chocolate was much nicer than not having something warm and chocolate. The gourmet who bones a duck is not going to like this. A mug cake is to a real cake like a scone is to a muffin. (In case you ever run into this question on your SAT.) Care must be taken not to over beat the flour because that makes it tough as well microwaves. I gave it three stars because it tasted 3 stars. (I will try it again.) I got the Kindle edition for 99 cents so I was not put out by the cost.

I think this would be great for children! They are not very fussy and would have lots of fun making this.

When you microwave cake, it changes the texture. If texture is important to you, keep looking.
Many of the recipes use prepared foods for flavoring. MMC are fresh and homemade, but not what I would consider from scratch. Which is OK, if you normally keep on hand ingredients like: baby food (banana, carrot, pear), fruit juice (apple and orange), gelatin (cherry, grape, orange), pie filling (blueberry and cherry), pudding powder (butterscotch, coconut, pistachio), strawberry nesquick, and yogurt (lemon, raspberry, plain, peach). There are a lot of ingredients that kids like. Things that I don't normally have, especially baby food, or don't have the variety called for.
The recipes have as many ingredients as from scratch and may leave you with open food products less a tablespoon. For me, collecting and mixing ingredients too time consuming; the whole point of microwave food is simple and fast.
I like the book and it has lots of good ideas. But I'll be sticking with "my own" recipe for MMC. If you have never tasted microwave cake and aren't sure about buying this book, you may want to try it.
Mix 4 Tbs cake mix, 1 egg, and approximately 1 Tbs of yogurt (plain or flavored).
Spray large mug with cooking oil and fill with mixture.
Microwave for about 3 ½ minutes.
Since microwaves vary, you will need to experiment with the time. It overcooks/burns very quickly.
