Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Mug Cake


I am seriously neglecting this blog.

Even though I love my job as a teacher, I am looking forward to the summer holidays (only 3 weeks away y'all!)

Thankfully Canada has a long weekend this week, so I have until Monday to catch up on my marking.

But guess what I have made twice this week already?

You guessed it. The mug cakes are BACK BABY!

The first time I made this, I put the caramels in right before I microwaved it, but the caramels just sank to the bottom. Which is great if you want to eat a caramel soup at the bottom of your mug, but I wasn't really into it. I wanted the caramel as I was eating the cake. So I changed it up and added it mid-microwave session.

But whatever your preference, this mug cake is a perfect treat to pair with marking. Or with breakfast. Just saying...
