    Chocolate Chip Cookie Mug Cake

    For a sweet single serving treat, all you need is a mug, a microwave, and a few pantry staples. Brown sugar cake batter is speckled with semisweet chocolate chips in this cookie-inspired mug cake!If ever there were a time for the mug cake to make a return from its heyday in, well, whatever year it was, (2015 or thereabouts?) it is now. It’s a quick solution when you need a sweet, comforting treat for just one or two people, all while sparing your kitchen much mess.I developed this recipe to soothe both my cake and cookie cravings. The brown sugar batter is light and springy, and it reminds me of a chocolate chip cookie with pockets of gooey melted semisweet chips.
    This recipe stirs together with nothing more than a fork, and cooks in the microwave for 45-50 seconds. That’s almost instant gratification!
    Similar to my recent crazy cake posts (chocolate and vanilla), this recipe requires no eggs, milk, or butter. It’s pantry staples all the way!
    The mixture is stirred together and then poured into an 8 oz. mug. These days the usual coffee mug size is about 11 oz. and that size will work also. The cake just won’t rise all the way to the top of the mug.
    A mug cake fresh from the microwave will be hot and steaming. The top may look under cooked, but it’s not – it’s just shiny from the steam generated in the microwave (you can check with a toothpick tester to be sure).As the cake cools it will pull away from the mug ever-so-slightly. You could turn it out on a plate, but there’s no reason to, really! Enjoy it straight from the mug.
    The brown sugar batter could be varied with other flavors of baking chips such as peanut butter or white chocolate. Nuts, dried fruit, or even a chopped fun-size candy bar would work as a mix-in!
    The vegetable oil in the cake batter keeps this cake moist and tender while baking powder gives it a springy texture. This mini cake is wonderful on its own, but served hot with a scoop of ice cream on top, it’s truly decadent!

    Chocolate Chip Cookie Mug CakeYields 1 serving3 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed1/4 teaspoon baking powderPinch of salt1 tablespoon vegetable oil3 tablespoons water1/2 teaspoon molasses1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract1 tablespoon semisweet chocolate chips, plus more for garnishIn a bowl or a glass measuring cup with a pour spout, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir together with a fork using the tines to break up any lumps of brown sugar. Add the oil, water, molasses, and extract. Stir together until smooth. Stir in 1 tablespoon semisweet chips.Pour the batter into an 8 oz. (1 cup capacity) microwave-safe mug. Use a rubber spatula to effectively scrape all of the batter into the mug. Add a few more semisweet chips on top of the batter, if desired.Microwave at 100% power for 45-50 seconds, or until the cake is well-puffed. Let stand for 2 minutes. A toothpick tester should come out without any uncooked batter clinging to it. Serve warm.Notes:This recipe was tested in a 1000 watt microwave. Higher wattage will cook this cake faster, lower wattage will cook slower. Adjust the time 5-10 seconds accordingly.Turn the cake out onto a plate if desired. For easiest removal, spray the mug with cooking spray before adding the batter to it.This recipe will work without the molasses if you don’t have any on hand. It will not taste as cookie-like, but still delicious.Serve this warm with a dollop of whipped cream or topped with vanilla ice cream if you have it!

    Three Ingredient Cream Cheese Mini Biscuits

    These tiny biscuits are rich and buttery beyond words! Serve them when you’re short on time, or when you’re looking for a fuss-free bite.This year we’ll be celebrating Easter with a lot less people around our table, but I’m still holding tight to our holiday dinner traditions. I’ll be making a smaller version of Easter dinner with a turkey breast I found in the freezer, some scaled-down sides, and these lemon icebox pies in jars for a sweet ending.Last weekend I was able to replenish my eggs and dairy, but flour is still proving to be elusive. I was planning to make my favorite buttermilk dinner rolls, but ultimately decided 7 cups of flour for one recipe was too much to part with right now. Instead I’ll be whipping up these truly decadent cheesy mini biscuits.
    This is a recipe that’s easy to commit to memory. You’ll need a package of cream cheese, a stick of butter, and a cup of self-rising flour. If you don’t keep self-rising flour on hand, then a cup can easily be made at home with my recipe notes. 

    When measuring flour for this recipe, I recommend the spoon-and-sweep method. Spoon flour into the measuring cup until overflowing, and then sweep the top level with the back of a flat butter knife. This will help you avoid tough biscuits, which can happen with too much flour. You could also weigh 120g of flour on a scale to be absolutely certain you’re getting the amount right.
    These baby biscuits bake in a mini muffin tin (1 3/4-inch cavities), and you won’t even need to grease the pan! These biscuits butter themselves!The dough is lax enough to pipe into the cavities, but if your dough seems too firm to pipe, place batter in the tin using two spoons.
    Fill the cavities all the way to the top! The tops may look a little ragged, but you can smooth them down by dipping fingertips in water and then lightly tamping them down.
    Bake until the edges are puffed and lightly golden brown.

    These little biscuits are so rich and cheesy, they could almost be an appetizer or part of a cheese course! Although they are delectable warm, they are also quite good at room temperature. I might just serve these as an hors d’oeuvre when family and friends are able to celebrate together again.

    Three Ingredient Cream Cheese Mini BiscuitsYields 14-16 mini biscuitsThis recipe requires the use of a mini muffin pan.1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, at room temperature1/2 cup (1 stick/113g) unsalted butter, at room temperature1 cup (120g) self-rising flour (*see note for substitution)Preheat oven to 400°F.In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and butter until creamy. Gradually add flour beating at low speed, just until blended.Pipe or spoon dough into ungreased mini muffin pans (1 3/4 inch cavities), filling them full to the tops. If dough looks ragged, dip fingertips in water and pat down any peaks in the dough. Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until the muffins are lightly puffed and golden around the edges. Serve warm.*Note: For homemade self-rising flour, combine 1 cup of all-purpose flour in a bowl and whisk in 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Use in this recipe as a replacement for self-rising flour.
