When you want something for dessert that's more than a chocolate bar or ice cream, but still easy enough to make that you can eat it ASAP, mug cakes are your friends. Most of these take less than 2 minutes to make in a microwave. Yeah, that's right.
Just because these desserts are made in a microwave, it doesn't mean the cakes can't be made from scratch and taste good. None of these mug cakes use a cake mix, and all of them go a little beyond your normal funfetti or chocolate pudding bomb kind of mug cake you normally see.
So whether you're living in a dorm, or sending your kids off to one soon, you can be prepared for immediate dessert consumption whenever the overwhelming feeling strikes.
