Me thinks molten chocolate cake has finally jumped the shark by becoming Mug Cake.
I do wonder when I still see Molten Chocolate cake on dessert menus.
Has the molten cake not had its day pastry people? At least mix it up a little. How about molten on the outside, cake on the inside!
Wait, that’s chocolate cake with sauce. OK. It’s over.
Or is it? A little Dr. Oetker Mug Cake made its way into my house recently. Did I raise my inner foodie eyebrow? Oh yes, I did.
But, forging ahead with an open mind and open cupboard, I pulled out a mug and did some baking. Using my 10-year-old, not so high-powered microwave, after a couple minutes I pulled out a moist, chocolate cake in a mug—kind of goopy in the centre where it hadn’t finished cooking. You bet I ate the whole thing.
And then I really opened my mind to the universe and thought, Who’s to say you couldn’t pour a little Drambuie on this baby and flambé it up? Just call it Flug Cake.
And since I’m on a drunken roll, here’s another great idea: Mug cake for high tea! Watch the Royal nuptials while sipping a mug of warm cake.
Just call it Smug Cake.
