11 days since the beginning of Vegan MoFo, 11 days of intense cooking… I can’t pretend it always works. Far from it. Here is my latest failure, quite in theme with today’s « cookbook wednesday » theme…
Well, my idea was to try a miniature mug cake. The recipe comes from Lindsay Nixon’s Everyday Happy Herbivore, a great book for simple yet delicious recipes. Well, it seems that the size (and shape) does matter… I made it before, it worked really well in the « regular » size, but here I am, thinking about miniature mug cake in expresso cup, to serve with café as a « café gourmand » (which is an expresso with a couple bite-size sweets). That’s quite in fashion right now in France, most restaurant have the « café gourmand » option for people who don’t feel like having a full dessert but still want to end their meal with a sweet (which might apply for 99% french population)
Anyway…. I prepared the batter, poured it in expresso cup, filled half the cup so I though it should be just fine.
Well, it didn’t.
Cake was good though. But not as pretty as expected…
I modified Lindsay’s recipe as I received Dandy Marshmallows I ordered from the US and I wanted to try them in baked goods right away. I can’t blame the mug-cake-explosion on the marshamallow, yet, it was even messier to clean up !!!
Did this kind of stuff happened to you to ? I wondered if it could come from the shape of the mug… If you have any insights on that, I’d be glad to hear it !
Here’s the mess….
