The Weekend ReTREAT: Blueberry Ricotta Mug Cake



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.

I scraped the mug clean on this cake, it was perfectly fluffy. The bites with blueberries popping in my mouth were my favorite. I couldn’t get enough. Once again, I dramatically scaled down the flour in this recipe and the pay-off was huge.  So grab some blueberries from your farmer’s market and make you and all your friends a mug cake!

There is a very small amount of ricotta in this when compared to how much is in an actual container of ricotta.  I recommend scooping some of your leftover ricotta on a plate, sprinkling some salt and pepper on it, drizzle a little honey and olive oil over it and and eating it with some crackers.  It’s one of my favorite snacks. 

And on the note of leftovers, that’s actually my theme for next week!! I had a bunch of stuff in my fridge from previous projects and didn’t want them to go to waste.  So I made a few recipes from things I already had and let me tell you……they were just as great as the recipes I originally made with those ingredients.  So get ready for some decadent leftovers!

We all deserve a little treat.....share!
