Microwave Miracles …

It came to my attention about a month a go that it is possibly to bake a cake in a mug, in a minute, in the microwave.  Me not being much of a cook myself this quite frankly, came as marvelous news!

How could any baked good taste good being cooked in the microwave I hear you ask?  I will admit its no delicate pastry from a little French patisserie, yet it certainly gets rid of the sweet cravings (and avoids having to go outside – bonus!)  I might also add that there is certain novelty aspect of cooking a cake in a mug.

Mug Brownie

Try the mug brownie, it can come out of the microwave a little over done and rock hard yet also comes out under done a lot of the time.  It’s all about striking a happy medium I personally prefer the later.  It tastes of slightly under done Aunt Bessie creation.  http://www.instructables.com/id/Mug-Brownie/

Or try my lemon (drizzle?) creation.  Not really drizzle I will admit, kind of just tastes like lemons:

4 tbls flour, 4 tbls sugar, 1 tbls lemon rind, 1 egg, 3 tbls milk, 1tbls oil

Mix it all together, put it in the microwave and voila – A microwave Miracle!
