Cake-in-a-mug update update

Cake-in-a-mug update update

Previous Entry Share Next Entry
Right. So, for the past week, I've had an itch to try the cake-in-a-mug. Again. Because even though I got wicked heartburn last time, I just had to make it again. I think I may be clinically retarded for it, but I had to find out if it happens every time, or if it was just a fluke occurance. Since, you know, I am trying to figure out cooking through trial and error.

In the last update, I said I would ditch the chocolate chips, and I think that it was a wise decision. I also didn't bother measuring the amount of vanilla, as I am getting more comfortable with liquids and how much to pour for various amounts. Huzzah for experience! It was a tad bit dry, though. Not entirely certain how to fix that.

Another thing that I am trying to figure out is how to make a rainbow cake-in-a-mug, as that would just be too cool for school. I think the best way for me to figure that out would be to compare yellow cake recipes to chocolate cake recipes, and from there to the cake-in-a-mug, so I can see what to change and by how much. I think it would be a super-nifty thing to make.

Anyway, I need to get back to hacking out a short story. I don't write those often enough. Goodnight everybody, and stay safe out there.
  • That does sound tasty

    I used to be a baker, and yeah, chocolate chips in cakes are fun occasionally, but really, if you're going for a chocolate cake then cocoa is the way to go. Sounds like you're doing some cutting-edge cake-making here... I'm awed. I want a cake in a mug!

      Not quite cutting edge yet. Once I step off the road and start experimenting, though... that's where things will get interesting.
  • The rainbow cake-in-a-mug would be really interesting. Have you thought of using a pyrex measuring cup or beaker to show off the layering?

      That's the glory of a cake-in-a-mug! You don't eat the thing while it's still in the cup, you flip it out onto a plate. When I figure out a rainbow variation, there will be pictures.
