The Most Delicious Mug Cakes!
Mug cakes have taken off in popularity in recent years, and for good reason! Sometimes you just need a sweet treat to yourself to curb that dessert craving.
If you're like me, keeping a whole tray of brownies or chocolate chip cookies on the counter means you'll be inadvertently snacking on them 24/7. Single-serving microwaveable mug cakes are the perfect solution!
