Who knew that Bisquick mix could be used to make a light and fluffy cake.

I’m always open to suggestions for a new mug cake idea. Last week, I received a tweet from @SDFoodTrucks suggesting I try a Bisquick mug cake. So here it is.

I had to give this some thought. Was I trying to make a pancake mug cake or an actual cake? After some mulling, I aimed for an actual cake using Bisquick mix. I played around, and surprisingly came up with a result that was super fluffy and light.

Nado Gelato was recommended to me a while back, but I don’t make my way to Coronado often. This weekend we were in Coronado, so I  made sure to go check it out.

The cafe serves coffee and Bottega Italiana gelato. There were about a dozen flavors of gelato offered, including several I haven’t seen before. What I was most intrigued by were the gelato flavors with alcohol. I love boozy desserts.

After sampling a few, I chose two flavors: Disaronno and Panna Cotta. A small is $3.50 which I think is pretty reasonable.

Mini pancake cups filled with sausage bits. Favorite breakfast items wrapped into one. Dip it in some maple syrup and you have yourself a deliciously yummy breakfast/brunch item.

I came up with the idea when my mind wandered off during work. I was thinking back to my bacon pancake egg cups and was wanting something even simpler. I was really craving pancakes and sausages so I came up with this.
