Welcome to my fall series The Weekend Retreat! My mug cake series was under the same title but I love the word play so much, and am too lazy to come up with a new one! Since I’ll be traveling a bunch this fall, I wanted to come up with an idea that would allow me to showcase desserts, but I wouldn’t have to bake them all.  So I’ll be curating tours around the city that focus on one thing.  This gave me an excuse to try new places, eat delicious things, and hang out with my friends. The inaugural tour is ice cream! It’s not just for the summer, which I proved earlier this week. Welcome to The Weekend Retreat!

Tropical Mug Cake Domestic Batch

The time has finally come! It is the final Mug Cake! (for now!) I held off making this one because a tropical mug cake would go so well with all the recipes I shared this week! So here’s the grand finale, a mug cake using coconut and pineapple and a touch of rum, because why not. I’ve had a lot of fun making these, going through the book and seeing what each new week would hold.  I love how easy they are to make.  I do think some of them are too dense and I encourage you to cut anywhere from 1/2 – 1 tbsp  of flour from the recipe for a more moist cake.  But use your judgement, if the batter looks too wet, add flour, it’s always easier to go forward than back.

The home stretch of Mug Cakes continues. There will be one more after this, then perhaps a Top 5 recap to buy me some time for a new series and then onto a new weekend chapter. My friend Lori suggested replacing Mug Cakes with cocktails, which I’m a big fan of, but I need to stock my bar a little better.  Otherwise, you’re all get gin and tonic recipes every week with an occasional bourbon on the rocks thrown in.
