5 Mug Cake Recipes You Absolutely Have To Try

When you want a quick dessert, mug cakes are the answer!

I am very much a dessert person (a name that Claire Saffitz likes to call herself - and her cookbook too). But often, I don't have the time to create entire cakes, cookies, or crumbles, and especially not during a semester. So when there's times I really feel like baking something (and eating something delicious), I'll whip up some mini cakes and cookies - in microwaved form of course. Don't get me wrong, these are no replacements for the oven-baked versions. But they are great for a dessert that comes together in a quick pinch.

Classic Chocolate Mug Cake


Try this chocolate mug cake recipe from Table for Two! It's full of chocolate chips and/or hazelnut spread and is a delightfully chocolatey treat.

Apple Pie Mug Cake


This apple spice mug cake (also from Table for Two) sounds absolutely delicious! You could even top it with a little mix of chopped apples coated in cinnamon and sugar for an even more comforting dessert.

Funfetti Mug Cake


What is more festive than this funfetti version of a mug cake from Mel's Kitchen Cafe!? Classic vanilla paired with brightly colored sprinkles is a dessert that can bring a smile to anyone's face.

Chocolate Chip Mug Cookie


You might be surprised that a chocolate chip mug cookie works, but it really does! Try out this recipe from Mel's Kitchen for a beautifully soft, gooey, and chocolatey cookie.

Peanut Butter Mug Cake


This mug cake is for people who love peanut butter and chocolate together. Oh, Sweet Basil's recipe is a great one to try if you fall into this category!

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
