Over the Counter #163

What book caught my eye this week as it passed over the library counter and under my scanner? Well.....a 'little' bit of cake can't be too bad for you can it?

Mug Cakes: 100 Speedy Microwave Treats to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth by Leslie Bilderback.

From the publisher, St. Martin's Griffin:

"Satisfy your sweet tooth instantly with a microwave cake baked in a mug.
Mug Cakes contains one hundred recipes that are ready in a matter of minutes! Why reach for store-bought mix that takes up to an hour to bake? Let Mug Cakes show you how to make a quick, tiny batter to mix in a mug with a fork! They are the perfect personal serving size when you don't feel like baking an entire cake.

With dozens of mouthwatering recipes, there is something to please every taste. It's all here, from basic Buttermilk Cake to fancy Chocolate Caramel Fleur de Sel. Let the kids try their hand at S'mores and Root Beer Float cakes. Then send them to bed and try the liquor-infused recipes from the Adults Only chapter. There are recipes for cake lovers with special dietary needs, and even noncake recipes like mug puddings, pies, and cheesecakes, when you get tired of cake ( can happen!).

So if you've got five minutes to spare, grab a mug, mix up a mug cake, and satisfy your sweet tooth ASAP!"

(Over the Counter is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World. I've sadly come to the realization that I cannot physically read every book that catches my interest as it crosses over my counter at the library. But...I can mention them and maybe one of them will catchy your eye as well. See if your local library has them on their shelves!)
