Looking through her blog was fun and I enjoyed making the white chocolate christmas trees and the single serve Coffee cake in a mug. I couldn't find coffee in the ingredient list so instead I added cocoa to my mix to make it a chocolate cake. I used the measurements in Melissa's recipe but I think my mug was too tall and the cake did not fill my mug to the top so I remade it again and doubled the ingredients so that I could get a photograph of the cake showing in the mug. The cake turned out gooey and fairly dense almost like a chocolate brownie. I guess this was because the recipe did not have egg in it. I am not complaining though, the cake tasted delicious and was chocolicious and delectable.For sheer indulgence a scoop of vanilla ice cream would have taken it to heaven.
