Looking for an inexpensive, quick and easy treat using ingredients you most likely have on hand? Well, you have found it! This Crazy Cake in a mug is the perfect small treat when you don't want to bake a whole cake and its only you or maybe one other person.
So many times a whole cake is too much for one or two people to eat before it goes stale, so this is the perfect solution! This cake has no eggs, butter or milk because it was formulated in the 1930s when these items were luxuries that could not be afforded by every one. So they came up with a recipe that is incredibly moist, and decadent with out the expensive ingredients. This was actually the first cake my mom taught me how to make and the first her mom taught her to make! But in my family we call it Wacky Cake.
Its such a great time tested and true recipe, and I can only imagine that the single serve option would be just as awesome! The cake itself is great because it can pass for vegan and is great for people with certain food allergies. Mary, from the Sweet Little Blue Bird blog, has perfectly adapted the old time recipe for a single mug serving and guarantees it tried, tested and true. She even lists some extra tips for us at the bottom of the article as well as some enticingly delicious looking photos of a Crazy Mug Cake she made with whipped cream on top... I am drooling... Try this awesome, time efficient recipe for your after dinner sweet tooth craving, and I am sure you won't be disappointed! It would be a fun baking experiment for kids too! Helping them learn about measurements and portions!
