Microwave cupcake

The other night I needed to make a single cupcake and wanted to do so with as little work as possible. So I followed this recipe and then microwaved it for 90 seconds instead of baking it. I’d heard of these so-called microwave mug cakes before and figured I’d give it a shot.

While the result wasn’t something I’d actually serve to someone–it was spongy and kinda odd–it was actually a little more edible than I would have expected. Basically, the texture was off, but the flavor was OK.

Pretty cool. Next think you know, you’ll be able to microwave popcorn.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
