The Weekend ReTREAT: Tropical Mug Cake

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.

It’s been a great endeavor to go through a recipe book and actually make everything. To see how they turn out, how they look in real life compared to the beautifully crafted photo in the book.  And a good bunch of them came out pretty darn close.  But I have reached a point where I am happy to move on from this series. I’m ready to start a new easy weekend chapter.  I like the cocktails idea, I’m also throwing a couple other ideas around in my head to figure out which is the most feasible, affordable, and interesting. But without further ado, the final mug cake in the series.

I reduced the rum in this recipe.  I’m a boozy chick but in this small cake, the original amount was even too much for me.
