For those without a microwave, there are tested oven options for all of them!

Happy Saturday, folks.

Time for another round of sweet and savory Saturdays! 

So, just a heads up- Amanda and I are taking the next little while off due to both of us having travel arrangements and busy schedules. 

Not to worry- we’ve got one epic round-up today to keep your sweet tooth in check EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

Mug cakes, mug muffins and single serve desserts made in a mug are one of my absolute favorite things ever. Being a single guy, I certainly have no need to bake an entire cake or a full batch of muffins (That’s not saying I don’t….sue me)

Back in the middle ages, I never thought such antics could be created in 1-2 minutes but alas, I stand corrected. If you’ve never tried a mug cake before, you NEED to set 5 minutes aside (including prep!) to whip one up and it will become a part of your standard snack/dessert rotation!

  1. You guys are queen & king of mugcakes! Though I have nothing to contribute, I am certainly taking away today!
    And yes, I totally use my microwave.

  2. I think I would die without my microwave! Melodramatic, yes, but I use it all.the.time.
    That mint chocolate mug cake looks like all that’s right with the world.

  3. I use the microwave every day–SERIOUSLY. It’s so convenient! Mug cakes are great for late nights or for last-minute desserts during bikini competition prep XD #questmugcakes

  4. Omg. The day when I discovered I could make a chocolate chip cookie mug cake in the microwave was the best day in the whole world. I did it every day for like a week.

  5. My family hasn’t had a microwave in years, though I often wish we did. I honestly don’t even know how to work one, lol. But I get by by cooking all these delicious mug cakes in the oven. I just have to wait longer 🙂
