Making a cake from scratch in five minutes (or less) might sound like a fantasy, but all it takes is a microwave and a mug.
Seriously, mix up a cake from scratch, or even stir up batter from a box, and see for yourself: Take your favorite coffee mug, and after a couple minutes you’ll have yourself a puffy, moist, cake and almost zero clean up.
Just when you thought this couldn’t get any easier, mug cakes are also incredibly customizable. You can add any nut, seed, sprinkle, even cookie butter, and you are guaranteed to have a satisfying and delicious dessert in minutes.
Also, note that there are a number of great things you can make with a mug and a microwave, but the mug cake is definitely a winner. So try one out, and if at first you don’t succeed (which is almost impossible), don’t worry because a minute of prep and a minute in the microwave is all it takes to try again!
