So far all the mug cakes recipes I’ve come across have all been chocolate. While I love chocolate cakes, sometimes I’m in the mood for something lighter and more refreshing like a white cake with fresh fruit.

So I set about trying to create a simple white cake. And since blueberries were on sale, I added some fresh blueberries to the batter. My first attempt was a failure. But on my second attempt, I create a pretty fluffy mug cake filled with fresh berries. Delicious.


Mangia Mangia is a San Diego food truck that offers gourmet Italian food. Owner Marko has a passion for Italian food, having worked as a waiter both in Italy and in the US for over 20 years before deciding to start his own food truck.

The truck has been opened just shy of a year and already was featured on Food Network/Cooking Channel’s “Eat St.” program. They were named one of the best San Diego food trucks by San Diego Union Tribune and recently took second place in a San Diego Food Truck Wars.

On Thursday nights, you can even get a 5 course meal for $20 when Mangia Mangia parks in front of the 57 Degrees Wine Shop in Mission Hills.

On FH’s visit, he chose the meatball panini sandwich ($7), and a side of fries.

Continuing on my breakfast cup recipes, I recently tackled Bacon Egg McMuffin cups.  English muffin + bacon + egg = Yum.

The English muffin develops a nice crispy exterior similar to if you had toasted it. The bacon doesn’t quite wrap around the entire muffin, but it does seem to fit right inside the muffin cup. Inside the crispy bacon wrap is the egg.
