I think if there is one thing that most of us can relate too, it’s our love for the sweeter things in life. I for one have a major sweet tooth and love to occasionally indulge in my favorite sweet treats such as cake, brownies, pies and more. The only problem with this is often times I get a craving for something sweet late at night and don’t really feel like dragging a bunch of pans and dishes out to bake something. Last year I posted a recipe for Cake in a Mug which is a super easy dessert to make but what if I told you there is something even better. I’d liked to introduce you to a genious company called Shirley J which recently sent me several boxes and mugs from their mugging line to try out with my family.
Mugging! is a brand new baking concept which you can do at home in your own microwave. It’s an easy way to make the perfect size desserts and other savory dishes with little effort. Making your favorite desserts couldn’t possibly get any easier. All you need is water and a microwave along with your favorite Shirley J Mix and Mug and in 90 seconds your favorite dessert is ready.
Shirley J Mugging! Mixes Include:
Old Fashioned Yellow Cake & Cobbler
Chocolate Brownie Cake
Gluten Free Chocolate Brownie Cake
Quiche in a Cup
We have already tested out almost all of the flavors from the Shirley J mugging line but my favorite so far is the Chocolate Brownie Cake. To make this you simply pour the mix into a cup, add 5 TBSP of water, mix with a fork or whisk until smooth and pop in the microwave for 90 seconds. Once out of the microwave you can add chocolate chips to the top which will melt and make a yummy icing.
The cake is super moist and honestly I didn’t think it needed any topping at all. It tasted great all by itself. If you really wanted to you could add chocolate chips or even peanut butter to give your cake a really sweet kick.
I also love the fact that these Mugging mixes are so easy that my son Jeremy who is nine can make a dessert or even pancakes all by himself. He thinks this is pretty great also. Right now I am hooked on Mugging! and find that this is the easiest way to cure my sweet tooth without making a mess. For more information on Shirley J and Mugging!
