For all the hours I spend pottering about in the kitchen, I rarely use the microwave for cooking or baking. Yes, rarely. I have often wondered why. And never really arrived at a convincing answer.
I know friends who have amazed me with finger-licking delicacies they have whipped up using their microwaves.
And inspired by their proud successes, I have made many an honest endeavor. To tame the beast. But the results, while definitely not dismal, have never really managed to make me a convert. (And I have happily reverted to my old-school oven and gas stove.)
Barring one lone exception.
The mug cake.
A ludicrously simple no-fuss cake. Which believe it or not gets baked in less than 2 minutes. In a microwave. Decadent chocolate with a gooey peanut butter center.
My messiah on those nights when I absolutely need my chocolate fix before hitting the sack.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Mug Cake, Decadent chocolate with a gooey peanut butter center. Baked in under 2 minutes. In a microwave. Ludicrously simple !!!
