Nuts and Bolts:
This book has very little in the way of an introduction. It whets your appetite right off with a “Contents” page before giving the reader a glimpse into what goes into a mug cake. Readers take note about the “equivalent weights” in this chapter because it will come in handy when you’re ready to make your recipe. “A few tips” is helpful, as well, giving you tips for the lightest fluffiest mug cake you can make and the ideal microwaving technique.
“Mug Cakes: Chocolate” hops right into the recipes. We start off with the classic chapter titled “Chocolate Basic.” The recipes in here are anything but basic and even provides a recipe to share (if the mood strikes you, of course). “Two Flavours” focuses on chocolate and another flavor. These are all fun options to spice up a normal cake flavoring. Some options feature Oreo cookies, Ovaltine, praline, and fruit. Up next is the tasty chapter “Melt in the Middle” which is all recipes that feature a melty center. Let’s be real, who wouldn’t want a mug cake with a deliciously melted center? The final chapter is “Swirls” which is a self-explanatory chapter featuring swirled mug cake options: trust us, your Instagram is waiting for a picture of one of these.
You can’t go wrong with this selection. Consider pairing this book with a witty mug for a perfectly personalized gift. If you know someone heading back to college after winter break, tuck this in with their piles of clean laundry and be prepared for the deluge of genuine thanks coming your way. The question isn’t if you need this book– it’s which mug cake are you going to make first?
