Jamie recommends "Mug Cakes: 100 speedy microwave treats to satisfy your sweet tooth"

Have you ever had a taste for cake, but don’t want to go to the trouble of baking and frosting the whole thing?  If so, Leslie Bilderback has come up with an amazing book to help you out.  I admit to being skeptical that I could make a cake in a coffee in the microwave when I checked this book out, but, amazingly, it worked!  That craving for a blondie on a Friday night was satisfied with a recipe that included chocolate chips.  You do need to mix the ingredients just as you would for a regular cake, but these smaller recipes accommodate two mugs, which make them great for sharing.  There are 100 recipes in this book and she even has recipes for those who need gluten-free, sugar-free and vegan options. I’d definitely recommend this book for whipping up a quick dessert right in the microwave!

For teens and adults.
