Minute Microwave Cheesecake

Minute Microwave Cheesecake
Margaret asked me if there was some way to make a quick cheesecake. “I’d love to see a cheesecake ‘in a minute,’” she told me. “Just a single serving size.” I love a cooking challenge so, with her mandate, I set out to create a simple dessert that: 1. The spoon in my mouth proves I achieved the desired results. You might wonder why I added the egg to the recipe. On busy work-week days, it’s important to have something that you can grab and take to the office. Some things to consider before you start microwaving: You can substitute high-fat cream cheese and sour cream for a lower-fat product. The ingredients coming together in the bowl before microwaving. 2 ounces cream cheese, softened 2 Tbsp sour cream 1 egg ½ tsp lemon juice ¼ tsp vanilla 2-4 Tbsp sugar replacement sub (taste as you go) Mix all ingredients thoroughly in a microwave-safe bowl. Optional: Top with fresh fruit, whipped cream and nut meal. Makes one, one-cup serving.

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. Well, until I was feeling superbly lazy last week and housing a mad chocolate craving. 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. !!! I want to marry this mug. 5 Minute Chocolate Fudge S’mores Mug Cake [adapted from food network] 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

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. …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 tablespoons granulated sugar

100 Calorie 2 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake Mug cakes have been taking the web by storm. I set out several months ago to make my version of the perfect mug cake, and created a Nutella mug cake you can find here. It’s been my most popular recipe to date.

Ha!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Mug Cake So I'm pretty much going crazy about this amazing weather. I mean, 80s and sunny in mid-March? YES PLEASE, OBVIOUSLY. But. You see, my little brother Boots loves boots. So every night we all gather in the living room for our current Star Wars marathon. And Boots wiggles his toes in front of my face as if to say, "just these five little piggies". And then my nose falls off and I die. So we coax him into washing his feet by telling him horrible tales germs that like to live on stinky toes. After such an episode today I found him sitting on the bathroom counter with his feet in the sink, pouring Listerine over them. Okay... that works I guess. Anyways, enough about grossness. This is a five minute chocolate mug cake that is laced with peanut butter. It's topped with a fluffy peanut butter mousse that tastes exactly like peanut butter pie, which takes two seconds to make. Top that with hot fudge. That's the batter in case you were wondering. And please.

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). The dough will be soft and moist. 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.
