Ode to "Bacon Concentrate"


Feeling Giddy. Am I Dreaming?
My once ordinary mug is steaming.

Can it be? Is it true?
Cake in minutes from chocolate goo.

I StumbleUpon this magic trick —
tablespoons of ingredients, microwaved quick.

Not just a fan, but a devotee.
Bacon Concentrate is the food blog for me.

I am completely overcome. Is there really any wonder why I am moved to poetry today? A recipe that allows you to make cake in a coffee mug that you microwave — Brilliant! When I StumbledUpon Bacon Concentrate the other day and saw this recipe, I just loved the IDEA of it. But, I tried it last night and feel…complete. I have found what I was missing: the ability to have chocolate cake in a moments notice.

I may need to practice this recipe and fine tune it. (I am more than willing) There are many helpful adjustments and additions in the comments. (Comments the gorgeous sprinkles on the cupcakes of a post) Mr. Party MOMster was not as moved as I was. But, he’s really an ice cream guy. In the words of one-hit 80’s wonder, Matthew Wilder, “Ain’t nothing gonna break a my stride” (Feel free to click and rock a little — maybe rock is a bit strong. Tap your toe energetically).

Spread the word, it can be done, Cake-in-a-mug-in-minutes. My beloved MacGyver would be proud. If anyone has any other microwave dessert recipes — bring ’em on!

    I am such a sweet lover. The idea of having cake in minutes sounds great to me. The other big pay off – no pan or bowls to clean.

    I'm with you sqkecleen! There was only one extra mug in the dish mountain growing in my sink — not enough to cause an avalanche!

    I feel I have been visited by a celebrity! Not believing cake in a mug could be topped — I see you now offer Booze in a Can. YOU ARE MY IDOL!

    Ahahahaha! Well, my own Party Momster is really to blame for all this debauchery–I've just done the reporting on the various boozy, chocolatey household items. I'll be sure to pass along the love, because everyone knows that a good Party Momster can never get too much love. 🙂
