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