My Mug Cake Review:  The Mug Cake came in a cute little box that made it perfect for gift giving. I was really excited to try these out. The fill lines right on the inside of the mug allow you add water easily without having to dig for a measuring spoon. I have had mug cakes before but the tended to taste artificial and the consistency was too spongy. I tried the Raspberry Chocolate Streusel Cake first and it was so delicious! The chocolate and raspberry mixture blended perfectly together and the two flavors were evident in every bite. The Cinnamon Streusel Cake was also extremely flavorful  and the taste reminded me of autumn (one of my favorite times of year to bake!).  Both cakes had a bit of that spongy consistency that I came to expect with mug cakes; however, the strong flavors were so delicious that the taste sensation along with the crunchiness of the streusel completely overwhelmed the spongy texture. These were by far the best mug cakes I have ever tried. These would make a great care package for a college student or a fun way to welcome a younger child home from their first day of school. Or in my case, these would be great to have on hand for those PMS emergencies! The best part is you can have a delicious treat in just 3 minutes (1 minute cook time and 2 minutes for cooling). You can't go wrong.
