I know I missed a week or so there, but I’ll blame finances and if this was a more political blog, I’d go into the details of being a struggling, underpaid, under-worked, over-educated millennial, but this isn’t… It’s just that the past week, I was using up the minute dinners and cans of goods, so there wasn’t really anything worth posting. I did attempt this delicious mug cake below, but the first picture was horrible, so I made it again… it was that good.
I’ll first start off by saying, I didn’t alter this one in any way. I know that a lot of the times I will, substituting or adjusting for my own tastes, but with these mug cakes, I want to try and do that exact and find the best one. Let me say that this one really does taste like what it claims to be: a cinnamon roll in a mug cake. If the texture hadn’t given it away, I would have thought it was a cinnamon roll. Obviously, this has a more cake texture to it than the bread-like roll but boy, the flavors are so very, very close.
This one is a definite try. It actually cooks up in the time that the recipe says, is fluffy and full of flavor. I’d even recommend this on Sunday mornings (it was a tradition in my house as a kid that my dad would get up before church and pop in the cinnamon rolls for us when we woke up… it was the extent of my dad’s baking).
It has become clear to me that I need a better mug to do these in… so the search will be on…
