I am going to try this later with the kids when they get home from school. Sounds good. I think Sara posted this too, or something similar. I'll have to ask her what she thought of it if she tried it.

Thanks :chef2:

It's actually pretty good, and a good way to make some cake and not having the entire thing sitting there mocking your efforts to eat better, should you be attempting to eat better.

Be sure to use at least a 12 oz. mug. The cake will rise over the top fo the mug but won't run over.
