This is a little shortcut that is perfect for those days when you’d like to serve a dessert, but really don’t have the time to be mixing from scratch. It’s quick and with a few supplies from the pantry, you can make something ordinary into something exceptional!
I took a “Mug Cake” package. Greased the inside of a taller shaped mug (to get more height) and baked according to the directions on the package. When slightly cooled, I turned it out to cool. Then I gently sliced the cake in half. Frosted the half with the frosting much like a layer cake except a little more generous. Placed the top half on and spread some more frosting on the top. Sprinkled on some chocolate chips and a light dusting of confectioners sugar.
These make great little cakes for individual desserts. Try piping on the frosting for a more decorative look. Colored sprinkles or chocolate jimmies, etc. The possibilities are endless.
