8 Yummy Five Minute Mug Cake Recipes

5 Minute Chocolate Fudge Smore’s Mug Cakes

As the daugh­ter of two gym teach­ers, I grew up with a lot of clap­ping, whistling, run­ning, and moti­va­tional sound­tracks. So with that as my excuse, THIS IS GOING TO BE THE BEST YEAR EVER! Let’s go for it this year! Who’s with me? Come on!

To start off the New Year right, we’re going to cel­e­brate with cake. Ok, it’s not the break­fast of cham­pi­ons, but it’s awe­some and awe­some always counts. These 5-minute mug cake recipes are super yummy and a snap to make.

    Hi Tracy,

    The best year ever and ever!

    High Five,

    I’ve got 5 kids and as surely as your par­ents moti­va­tional sound tracks have obvi­ously rubbed off on you, I think to some extent we dic­tate the mood at the begin­ning of the year for our kids. So heaps of fist pump­ing over here in Syd­ney, lots of moti­va­tional sta­tionery and grat­i­tude jour­nals. It can’t do any harm can it? Happy New Year!

    4 days into the new year, have only just had break­fast but still this post has given me crav­ings! You should check out an old british fave, the ‘self-saucing pud­ding’, ‘lemon deli­cious pud­ding’ being a notable high­light. It’s the cakey, warm type of pud­ding, not the cold cus­tardy ver­sion we have here in the US. Self sauc­ing means you dunk a table­spoon of hot water over your wet cake mix­ture and it cre­ates a hot pool of sauce at the bot­tom of your cake, like some kind of dessert miracle.
