Eating is not only a necessity, but a pleasure for most people. While we can all enjoy a delicious tasting cake, many of us also concern ourselves with high quality ingredients. When we eat out we often don’t know what all goes into our foods. The same can be said of packaged foods. I have been seeing a lot of different mug cake recipes around the web, and by BuzzFeed, and what I love about them is that you know exactly what goes into your cake. This Fairy Bread Mug Cake is made from scratch, and you get to choose what brand and what quality of ingredients you will use.
I am partnering with DairyPure milk, by Berkeley Farms, to inform you about their new milk: backed by an exclusive Five-Point Purity Promise. This promise ensures that when you buy, and consume DairyPure milk, you are guaranteed the following of their products:
- Contains no artificial growth hormones
- Is tested for antibiotics
- Is continually quality tested to ensure purity
- Only comes from cows fed a healthy diet and
- Is cold shipped fresh from your local dairy
DairyPure is making it’s way into many stories. I found mine at Target! I don’t always purchase Whole Milk, but I decided to have some on hand for some of my seasonal baking. You can also find 1% Low Fat Milk, 2% Reduced Fat Milk, Skim/Fat Free Milk, Whole Milk, Heavy Cream and Half and Half.
What I love about this Fairy Bread Mug Cake is the ingredients are so simple that it is easy to memorize. Once you make it once or twice, you might have it down and won’t need to look at a recipe for future making. The measurements are the same, or similar for many ingredients, which helps too.
Unlike some cakes, this has a different texture and flavor, and is a cross between a bread and a cake. Top it with frosting and sprinkles, and enjoy. This recipe can be cut down for a smaller mug, but I like to prepare in a large mug/soup bowl, and turn over onto a dessert plate.
