Welcome to Brad's online memory archives.

Cake

I sometimes crave sweets at night. I try not to keep them around my house, because I don’t have much self-control when I get a hankerin’ for sweets. Last night, I got a really strong urge, but not strong enough to go out to get something. Laziness always wins.

Instead, I went looking on the internet for a microwave cake-in-a-mug recipe. I’ve done chocolate cake-in-a-mug before, but this time I didn’t have any cocoa, so it would have to be something else. THIS is what I found. I had all the ingredients except for strawberries.

Mmm...

Mmm…

It was good. I thought it would be more vanilla-flavored, but mostly I tasted the cinnamon. I should have put some more glaze on it, but I was running out of powdered sugar. I would definitely make this again, but I think I liked the chocolate mug cake better.

    Mmmmmm…. looks delicious…. Good for you for being so resourceful! Would adding strawberries have tied it with chocolate?

    I’ve never been a ‘must have dessert after dinner’ type, but the past few weeks Lloyd and I have each bought a pint of Ben & Jerry’s and I’ve been having a scoop after dinner each night. I have to say – good tradition.

      Wait…you can only do a single scoop of ice cream and call it “good”?! I have a new respect for you, ma’am.

      I agree. That whole pint is a serving for me.

    I’ve always loved the word hankerin’. It reminds me of something medical.
    I had me a nasty hankerin’ last week…. the doctor gave me some ointment…cleared it right up.

    And I too applaud your resourcefulness. Looks really good! I must try these!

    Hey! I saw your commercial this morning while watching CNN. It was a little freaky to hear your voice and then see you on the TV. I hope you are getting royalties… that was a great performance!
