chocolate mug cake

Our oven is still being sassy. Which is the pits because it’s warm food and baking season! The weather even currently matches! Hopefully it will be fixed soon. In the meantime, we got the idea to make little microwave mug cakes! A fun evening treat to mix up after baby bedtime. (ps- it says two minutes, which is the cooking time, but then it says wait 15 minutes for cooling. So it’s kind of a lie, but still fun.) Do you have any favorite no bake or microwave treats we can try??

bundt cake

Bundt cakes are one of the scariest cakes, because of the pan. Mixing it up just requires you to follow the directions. Easy enough. But you can follow every direction for preparing the pan, and there is still the heart stopping moment when you turn it over, praying out loud that the sucker will just slide right out.

I flipped this one over, took a time out before I got too frustrated, and I would say 98% finally came out perfectly. The 2% was thankfully more cosmetic than structural, so you can’t even notice. Going into the win column.

Couple from over the weekend.

1. It was rainy and drizzly for a lot of the weekend. But not too cold for flip flops.

3. I crossed all my fingers and toes that the cake would come out of the pan.
