So the other day, or should I say night, I was needing a yummy sweet snack and as much as I LOVE to bake I was not about to get my butt off the couch to bake anything. I needed something easy, quick, without making me feel toooo guilty for indulging. I remembered I had these mug cake recipes saved in my computer. Hmmmm...I've made a chocolate one in the past and it just really wasn't that good and I had blueberries in the fridge that were going to go bad if I didn't hurry up and use them. So I did a quick search for a blueberry muffin in a mug (with streusel). Found it! Literally it only took 5 minutes (commercial break) with mixing and microwaving. This is it and it's from here http://kirbiecravings.com/2013/05/blueberry-muffin-with-streusel-topping-mug-cake.html. I highly suggest you try it!
So today I decided I was going to try to come up with numerous variations to make all kinds of mug muffins. I decided on a base recipe and will take on these different variations on a daily basis (hopefully)...a mug a day.
I wanted to be able to see inside the mug (and for you to see inside too) while things were happening so I went out and bought two clear mugs. They are on the larger side too so hopefully we won't get spillage.
Here are my two mugs and below are the few measuring utensils I will need. (They're my Mickey Mouse ones from Disneyland)
My base recipe is (was) very simple. 4 Tbsp flour, 4 Tbsp sugar, 1/8 tsp baking powder, pinch of salt, 3 Tbsp buttermilk, 2 Tbsp melted coconut oil.
Flour and sugar now. I always use Organic Evaporated Cane Juice for my sugar. It has a more mellow sweetness to it.
The quest for mug muffin recipes will continue tomorrow when I will try for the right banana bread mug muffin recipe again.
