By now, it’s safe to say you’ve heard of the mug cake trend. We’ve even tried a couple of variations here on the show. The fact that they’re so easy to make and that you can get a single-serving of a delicious snack so quickly is what makes them so popular. We put another spin on mug meals by putting breakfast in the mug! Nobody likes to deal with the mess and take the time it takes to make pancakes in the morning when everyone is rushing out the door. So, we took care of that problem by sharing a recipe which means you can have a pancake whenever you want!
