Apologies and Cake

I’m sorry.

Really, truly sorry.

The picture you are about to see may harm you.

This is your last chance to look away…


So what happened? Well, I managed to come home for a long weekend and leave both of my cameras at school. This left me with no option other than to photograph this recipe with my iPad. Once again, I am sincerely sorry that you had to view such a heinous picture.

You are probably wondering what that is even a picture of. Well, it’s a pretty amazing mug cake.  Thankfully, this recipe is so good that you may be able to forgive me for the poor picture.

This pineapple mug cake is so incredibly easy that you can make it in a matter of minutes in your dorm room. Here’s what you do:
