It is quite likely that you have already seen them in suggestive and striking photographs. In fact, they have been flooding Pinterest for quite a few years now. They are known as Mug Cakes, which in their translation would be something like mug cakes.
They consist of biscuits that are cooked directly in a cup, the same one in which they are later served and tasted. They are usually biscuits that are cooked in just 5 minutes, using the microwave almost exclusively for cooking. That is to say, they are easy and ready biscuits in 5 minutes.
The traditional thing is to opt for sweet Mug Cakes, opting for it by typical ingredients in the preparation of sweet biscuits, as is the case with chocolate. But they are desserts that even allow the inclusion of salty ingredients: bacon, cheese, vegetables.
