One Minute Chocolate Mug Cake
On Saturday morning, I clicked the Foodbuzz twitter profile, fully expecting to see someone else as the winner of the “best baking blog” award.

Chocolate Hazelnut Morning Coffee [oops, sorry. I mean] Smoothie I don’t know about you, but I can’t start the day without a good cup of coffee. Not that I am a BIG coffee drinker, but I do need at least one cup as soon as I get out of bed, followed by another one a little later in the morning. In fact, on week days, I drink my first cup of coffee while working out, and I often wonder if there are others like me out there. I mean, coffee isn’t necessarily the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of a refreshing drink to have during and intense work out…

I like chocolate, I really do, and while I think that chocolate milkshakes and Reese’s peanut butter cups are from the gods, I just can’t handle a lot of it. Dark chocolate? No thanks.

Chocolate Pudding Cake in a Jar Pudding cake is cake unlike any other – as it bakes, it creates a rich puddingy sauce underneath the batter, which bakes up all soft and cakey on top. You eat it in a bowl, with a spoon, which makes it a perfect candidate for baking in little glass jars. Cakes baked in jars are all the rage right now, but I find it awkward to eat plain old cake from a jar.
