We have been experimenting with mug cakes. Have you encountered these? They’re essentially tiny, single-serving cakes cooked in the microwave – theoretically in a mug.
Last night we made this one, an applesauce cinnamon cake. I added in 1/2 T of wheat bran for fiber, but it really did then need a little extra liquid. I think my homemade applesauce is cooked down more than store-bought, as well.
That being said, while a bit dense, it was super tasty. After a veggie-heavy dinner, one serving was easily split between the two of us.
Tonight we did this one, chocolate on top of chocolate.
I swapped out 1/2T of the flour for more cocoa, subbed out 1/2T of milk with egg whites, and did my standard chocolate-plus-one of subbing out some of the vanilla with Patron XO Cafe and adding in a 1/4 teas of espresso powder. When we do it again, I’ll add in 1/8 teas of salt, too, but with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, this was ~delicious~.
