I’m dealing with the s4 finale by aggressively writing fanfic.
prompt: “You bake when you’re stressed and sometimes you give me cookies, but recently you’re giving me whole baskets each day, now I’m not complaining but are you okay?” for Bellarke. Ao3.
It’s probably not normal to immediately think “poison!” when
someone leaves cookies outside of your door, but Clarke’s been in a
passive-aggressive note war with her upstairs neighbor for the last nine months
and, at this point, she wouldn’t put anything past him.
something dry (coconut flour, nut flour, cocoa, desiccated coconut, ground flaxseed) OR a big tablespoon of softened cream cheese. I don’t know why this works but it does in a pinch
maybe some oil or melted butter, or other wet ingredients like greek yoghurt or coconut cream or mashed avocado or, indeed, more cream cheese
maybe some other flavours (sweetener, salt, cheese, lemon, vanilla, carrot, pumpkin, coconut, cream cheese, ginger, berries, cinnamon, olives, herbs, rosewater, matcha green tea powder, lavender, feta, garlic, pesto, anything you want)
and maybe some chunks (walnuts, other nuts, chocolate chips, fruit, vegetables, etc)
pick some ingredients that go together, and mix them up until the consistency is somewhere between a runny pancake mix and a less-runny brownie mix. (be prepared for a few kinda-average cakes before you find the perfect ratio of ingredients and attain the perfect cake.)
put on a topping if you want (cinnamon, sesame seeds, olives, cheese etc)
microwave for like a minute. sometimes less, occasionally more, depending on your microwave. if psyllium husk is anywhere in the mix, you might need to cook it a bit longer.
and maybe you want some icing! like, mascarpone or whipped cream or butter or aioli etc.
Now you have all of my secrets! Good luck :D
and if anyone else has a keto mug cake recipe or idea to add, please feel free!
