Also the weekend my sister (Auntie Hunter) was over, she had just broken up with her boyfriend the night before. At the age of fourteen regardless if she broke up with him there is still some pain and hurt there. So I gave her a big dose of things that would make her feel better. Some Maia time, which is sure to brighten up anyones day. A trip to Target, who doesn’t love a good Target run. A minty green mud mask, some coffee, and a delicious chocolate mug cake!
Mug cakes are always hit or miss and most of the ones I’ve tried have been misses. So the ones I share with you are the ones that have been fantastic successes, so as long as you follow the directions you’ll never be disappointed! So the mug cake I’ll be sharing with you today is crazy cake or depression cake.
Ok now I’m about to drop some history on you here. Back during the Great Depression ingredients like milk, butter, eggs, and sugar were either to expensive or hard to come by. So they needed recipes that used very little of these things or none at all. So this cake has no milk, butter, or eggs making it vegan friendly. It does contain sugar but back during the Great Depression they would have boiled raisins with a little bit of sugar and spices to make a syrup to use in the cake instead. Alright so that was a little history lesson for you today now on to the mug cake!
