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.
