Davbi’s Culinary Adventures: Mugcake

Ever heard of a mugcake? Me neither, until a couple of days ago. My friend mentioned it in a conversation (he actually called it something else; I just can’t remember its name) and I just felt like I should try making one!

“But what are mugcakes?” I hear you ask.

Mugcakes are basically the epitome of student cooking! Low on ingredients, low on actual kitchenware, low chances of failure!

You get all the basic cake ingredients (flour, sugar, butter, etc…), mix them in minute quantities in a mug and microwave said mug to “bake” the cake! It’s great if you hate cleaning up, as you only need 2 teaspoons and a mug for the basic one, which is like a sponge cake. Since it’s that simple, you can easily change the recipe to include any desired ingredient (e.g. chocolate chips) and with the absence of an oven, you can always try using this to entertain your kids!

I tried to make my first one tonight (at 11 PM) with no prior research and didn’t ruin it (some parts were slightly burnt). However, I also have had some experience baking at home, so I wasn’t exactly sailing through uncharted waters.

I’d write down the recipe, but it still needs perfecting.

It was fortunate that the baking "pulled" the sides away from the mug. However, the bottom was stuck.

Apples taste amazing and give it some semblance of health.

I imagine, they'd be easy to decorate and present. Quick fox for a dinner party, maybe?

Coincidentally, Eric, the egg, has cracked.

Couldn't take the pressures of life in the fridge.
