Easy As Cake: 4-Ingredient Chocolate Microwave Mug Cake

Sometimes you just need some chocolate. And sometimes you just need some cake. And you always need simplicity and effectiveness. And that is  exactly what this 4-Ingredient Chocolate Microwave mug Cake is: a single-serving, easy-to-make cake packed with chocolate and cooked in the microwave. This cake only takes about two minutes to whip up, and is extremely light and fluffy! Because there is no added oil or butter, this cake is slightly healthier, but also slightly less moist. I would recommend topping this mug cake with frosting, ganache, or whipped cream to add back some richness.

Cuckoo for Coconut: Coconut Chocolate Chip Snack Cake with Coconut Glaze

There is no denying that I have a crush on coconut. Wait. Scratch that. I LOVE coconut. I should probably marry it (except that would be extremely strange). So I did the next best thing. I made a gorgeous Coconut Chocolate Chip Snack Cake with a Coconut Glaze! This cake is extremely moist and bursting with that nutty and creamy coconut flavor (as there is coconut milk and shredded coconut in the batter and flaked coconut on top) and the glaze adds even more coconut flavor! This cake is awesome to make if you have leftover coconut cream from making my Coconut-Lime Piecaken. And to make this deliciously awesome cake even better, it is ridiculously simple and quick to whip up! I think this cake is perfect for brunch, dessert, or snack, so let’s get baking and chowing!

Not in the base, and not in the dough. Yes, this is another recipe for no-churn ice cream, an ice cream so simple and delicious, even a novice could make!

Chocolate Tropical French Toast in a Mug

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.)
