The Weekend ReTREAT: Salted Caramel Mug Cake

Salted Caramel Mug Cake


Congrats! You made it through another week! In adult life, that can be quite an accomplishment. I know for me it feels like this week has gone on forever. With Phil out of the country for work, and battling this flu/sinus thing/I-must-sleep-for-hours bug, I’m ready for the weekend. Or more so, I’m ready to start a new week where I blow my nose less, and am awake and up and running more. I did manage to make a delicious mug cake to share with you, and anything with gooey caramel, and a little salt to even out the sweet is always acceptable.  And as I’m sure you’ve noticed, the Mug Cake book I’m going through, clumps similar things together.  So I think you have to survive through two more chocolate themed mug cakes and then we’re in the clear. You mad?

I love salted chocolate things.  My Salted Caramel Tart (one of the first things I ever posted here) is still something I love to make, and may dream about from time to time. I definitely replaced salted caramels in this recipe, which I couldn’t specifically find, with regular caramel candies and adding a pinch of salt.  The result was just as delicious.

  2. One by one, add in cocoa, flour, baking powder, and melted butter, beating in completely before adding the next
  3. Cut the caramels in half and stick into batter (adding in salt if using), mix so caramels are distributed relatively throughout
