Happy Monday! I’m linking up with some other bloggers this month to bring you Mugcake Mondays throughout the month of May! Fun, right? My first mug cake I ever made was this Nutella one and it turned out so well I’ve been looking for other mug cakes to try.
I decided to kick off my series with one appropriate for breakfast because I often want something a little more fancy or complicated in the mornings (a baked good, eggs, etc.) but my bad morning attitude means I really don’t want to put a lot of effort into making something. Especially since I expend most of my effort on feeding my children well. Sound familiar?
Anyway, when I ran across this blueberry muffin mug cake recipe HERE I decided to try it. Now while it’s not the consistency of a traditionally baked muffin, it’s still tasty and comforting… especially considering how little time and effort it takes to make. It made me happy this morning and that’s reason enough to share the recipe. Enjoy!
I’m participating in Mug Cake Monday during May with some other food bloggers. I will be posting a new Mug Cake recipe each Monday throughout the month of May.
