My sweet tooth seems to run rampant after dinner. I always need just a little something sweet to feel like the night is complete. Many times, though, I don’t want to be making up some large batch of cookies or brownies. I also don’t want to buy the break and bake cookies. I know those come in handy many-a-night, but they always seem over-processed to me.

Instead, I pull out a couple of ingredients from my pantry and fridge and whip up a quick mug cake. You may have seen these before, but it’s for good reason. They’re so simple to make, and take just five minutes of your time, including cook time, to make. Why wouldn’t you whip up a homemade cookie or brownie on a weeknight when literally the hardest part is waiting for it to cool down enough to eat?
