I started to cook when my family moved to the US, leaving me alone to fend for myself. In order to survive, I went online to study recipes and watch cooking videos. I’ve learned to make basic dishes like stew and fried grub, but I’ve always wanted to make desserts. My hopes were dashed when I realized how hard baking is. It’s a science, after all. Even the deceptively simple no-bake mug cakes are hard.
A few weeks ago, I discovered a new product that takes the hassle out of making mug cakes. Maya’s Happy Mugs come in an easy to prepare recipe, where all you literally have to do is mix the powder and pop it in the microwave. After a minute and a half, you have a pillowy-soft cake that smells freshly-baked.
