Happy 4th of July everyone! (Although it’s not quite July 4th yet… But in order to ensure you have time to make this dip, I can’t just post this on July 4th because then it would be too late to bring this awesome 7-layer dip to the party…) So yes. I know. This dip is really predictable. You’re probably thinking, Wow, so patriotic. She must be very ‘Merican. Well, no. I’m not very ‘Merican, but I do think that it’s great to be a little festive once and awhile. Personally, I think this dip is very cute, and it’s so easy to make! It’s sure to impress, and who doesn’t love a good 7-layer dip?
Oh French toast, how I love thee. I will write a poem for just for you, my love:
Bananas are yellow,
chocolate is brown.
I don’t know where this is going,
I should stop writing now.
But anyway…. My point is microwave mug cakes don’t have to be just for dessert. They have every right to be at the breakfast table too! Think about it, they’re quick and super easy to make. So I have taken the liberty to create a Microwave Chocolate Tropical French Toast in a Mug (I know, I shouldn’t have). This French toast in a mug is a complete breakfast. You’ll be getting fiber from the whole wheat bread, protein from the egg, calcium from the milk, and vitamins from the fruit! (But don’t worry. If you’re freaked about it being healthy, I added chocolate. No worries, bro.)
Trust me, I know what it’s like to live with allergy restrictions. Although I don’t have any allergies, I grew up with my brother being allergic to literally everything. Nuts, tree-nuts, dairy, gluten, soy, legumes, certain shellfish and other random food items. You name it, he was allergic to it (luckily he has outgrown most of these allergies by now). Gluten-free is probably the most common allergen besides nuts, and luckily for all you gluten-free viewers out there, I have a special mug cake recipe just for you! This flourless chocolate cake has a deep chocolate flavor that will satisfy any chocolate craving. An an additional bonus: it is by far the simplest mug cake I have ever made (it’s only three ingredients!).
