5 Minute Chocolate Fudge S'mores Mug Cake

5 Minute Chocolate Fudge S'mores Mug Cake
Oh hi! Just sharing a s’mores mug cake today. That can be made in 5 minutes. You know… NO BIG DEAL. Since you’re asking, yes… I have always thought the whole “cake in a mug in a microwave” thing was sort of skeevy. And another. Annnnnd maybe another. And another? Then I thought… is there anything in the world that I’m more obsessed with than s’mores? In minutes, with a few tweaks and twists and makeshift graham crusts and marshmallow middles, I had a s’mores mug. And it was just SO… FUDGEY. Sidebar: for years as a quick treat, I’ve melted butter in a bowl, added graham cracker crumbs, thrown on some chocolate chips and marshmallows then stuffed it in the microwave for 10 seconds. And you know what? This is like, A BILLION TIMES BETTER. Sorry for the shouting, but it’s necessary. !!! This is a much more practical, easier, quicker version of my smore’s cake in a jar, with marshmallows stuffed in the center and even a few healthier adjustments. I want to marry this mug.

The Comfort of Eggs in a Basket Eggs in a basket was the first meal I ever cooked. I was in 5th grade, and it was a Sunday morning at my best friend's house after a sleepover. We woke up hungry, and for some reason his parents weren't home. This confused me--my parents would never do that--but more important than confusion was the fact that I was terribly hungry, and I didn't see how that problem was going to be solved, since his house never had any cereal in it. "We'll make eggs in a basket," my friend said, pulling out a loaf of bread, a jug of oil, and a carton of eggs. You mean, we'll be cooking? The resulting breakfast was awesome: runny yolk and crisp bread dripping with oil (we filled the skillet so much oil it was basically deep-fried). Ideally, make this with slices of toast cut thick. I guess I have a fondness for very fast and simple eggs + bread dishes, my love of "eggy bread" evidence of this, which is basically French toast without sweetness or spices. What are your go-to quick meals when hunger looms?

Strawberry Mug Pies Luckily, there’s only been a handful of times in my life when I’ve been seriously disappointed. …when I learned the truth about Santa, even though at age 14 I still begged my brothers to sleep in my bed with me because I was so horrified of a portly, hairy man seeing me while I was sleeping. See also: when I learned the truth about Dirty Dancing. Like it not being real life. …when my mom claimed that parmesan truffle fries tasted… “funny.” …when I found out that Alanis was really singing about Uncle Joey in In You Oughta Know. …when I found out about skinny jeans. …oh, and that time I tried to make a pie crust like Mother Lovett and ran screaming for the hills, swearing off all pastry for life. But no fear. All you have to do is throw some stuff in a mug and eat it. And it may not even really be a pie, but what the heck else should I call it? You don’t need to make these in a mug – you can clearly make them in a cutie ramekin or even a small sort of bowl. Strawberry Mug Pies serves 4

2-Minute French Toast in A Cup Who’s got the munchies? Ha! Seeing as our Cup of Coffee Cake (in Under 5 Minutes) was our most popular post of 2011, I thought y’all might enjoy my other favorite last minute snack, which is even quicker and easier and more fattening (and therefore more delicious/more embarrassing to admit I eat on a regular basis).

Don't Forget Delicious! » Blog Archive » Fastest Cinnamon Rolls Heat the oven to 400°F. Grease the sides and bottom of a 8 or 9″ baking pan with cooking spray. Combine the ricotta cheese, buttermilk, sugar, melted butter, and vanilla in food processor and process until smooth, about 10 seconds. Add the flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda and pulse in short bursts just until the dough clumps together (don’t overprocess). Dump the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead it with floured hands 4 or 5 times until smooth (it really only takes 4-5 times). Brush the dough with the melted butter, leaving a 1/2-inch border unbuttered around the edges. Starting at a long edge, roll up the dough jelly-roll style. With a sharp knife, cut the roll into equal pieces (I got 8). Bake until golden brown and firm to the touch, 20 to 28 minutes. In a small bowl, mix the softened mascarpone cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla to make a smooth glaze.

100 Calorie 2 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake Mug cakes have been taking the web by storm.

That’s almost half the calories we should be consuming in a day, so I set out to makeover the mug cake.
