A cold November Sunday afternoon is the perfect time to flex one’s culinary muscles. I came across this recipe for Chocolate Cake in a Mug (via Jess at How About Orange) a few days ago, and have been dying to try it out.
It’s chocolate. It’s CAKE. In only 5 minutes! What’s not to love?
I harbored secret hopes of bestowing the secret of Chocolate Cake in a Mug upon an amazed and grateful Girl, who discovered the Betty Crocker instant cakes in college and hasn’t been the same since.
Alas, it was not to be. I should have read the comments on the forum she linked to later. You should go read. Pretty funny stuff.
Chocolate Cake in a Mug was a rubbery disappointment, although I was able to douse it in enough fudge sauce and vanilla ice cream to choke it all down.
On a separate but related note … I also bought the ingredients for a Hot Buttered Rum recipe I saw on t’interwebs.
Rum, butter, brown sugar, vanilla ice cream. How bad can it be, really?
