2-Minute French Toast in A Cup

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). It’s french toast in a cup, made in your microwave and topped off with a generous ssquirt of ssyrup (which is making my ssssss key kind of sssticky right now). So please, grab a slice of bread and allow me to blow your mind… Don’t forget to check out Jaime’s Lazy Late Night Cooking Corner on our YouTube channel for more microwaveable treats like, Single Serve Cinnamon Roll, Rice Krispy Treat, Blueberry Cobbler, and Strawberry Shortcake for Two. 2-Minute French Toast in a Cup Recipe First you need bread. Cube your bread. Get your cup or cups ready. Place the bread in the cup of your choosing. Mix it all together with a fork. Pour the mixture into your cup/cups. Add syrup. Eat.

Banana Mug Cake Friday, June 29, 2012 Banana Mug Cake I love banana bread, but when I develop a craving for it, it takes a while to satisfy. I have to mash some bananas, bake for an hour, let it cool, etc. But not anymore. Banana cake is possible in just a few minutes. Someone requested I try making this cake, but I didn’t get a chance to try creating it until now, after being given some lovely organic bananas from Organics Unlimited . When I added egg yolk to the batter, it turned the cake quite yellow. I even lightened the cake a little by replacing by eliminating the oil with some nonfat yogurt and nonfat milk. Like all the other mug cakes I’ve made, this one was easy to make. A little more information about the bananas.

Red Velvet Mug Cake Monday, March 19, 2012 I’m not sure where the inspiration came for making this mug cake this week. It wasn’t a suggestion by a reader, it wasn’t some idea that popped into my head that I had jotted down. It just sort of magically appeared into my thoughts while I was in the kitchen. I’m pretty picky when it comes to red velvet cakes. And even though I don’t really enjoy cream cheese frosting, I made it just for this cake. I was really proud at myself for opening the red food coloring bottle without staining my hands. Here’s the list of the rest of my mug cakes I’ve made so far. Red Velvet mug cake Ingredients: For the cake: 4 tbsp flour 4 1/2 tbsp sugar 1/8 tsp baking powder 1 1/2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder 3 tbsp oil 3 tbsp buttermilk 1 egg 1/2 tsp red food coloring For the frosting: 2 tbsp cream cheese 2 tbsp butter 1/2 cup sugar Directions: Mix all the ingredients together into an oversized mug using a fork or small whisk until batter is smooth. Let cake cool slightly before piping frosting.

- sweet road -: How to make 1 cupcake Picking out a single dessert to indulge in (alone or with a friend!) at a bakery almost has a romantic allure to it. Baking a batch of cupcakes or brownies at home often seems like a fun idea, but sitting alone in the kitchen with a half eaten pan of brownies and a stomach ache is not exactly my idea of a good time. Besides, desserts always taste better when you savor them, knowing that you only get one!I decided to combine my love for baking with this kind of one-time indulgence: I give you the single serving cupcake recipe! One Delicious Vanilla Cupcake! -Combine the Earth Balance and sugar until well incorporated -Add 2 tbsp of the almond milk (make sure the milk is at room temp or warmed up to prevent clumping and separation in the butter) -Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt, then add to the butter mixture -Add the remaining milk and vanilla and mix until incorporated -Bake at 350-375º F for 15-20 minutes *Update Another single cupcake recipe for a creme fraiche cupcake

How to Eat Five Times a Day … If you want to give yourself the best chance at succeeding in your weight loss efforts, you need to improve your metabolic rate and consume less calories than you burn.
