Once in a while we have a cancellation on the Morning Blend that results in getting creative to fill a segment. One of the jobs of a producer is to brainstorm something to fill the time.
It occurred today and thanks to some searching on the computer I came up with a recipe for making cake in a mug from scratch in the microwave.
The challenge with making food on television is the short period of time available to make it. I Googled "5 minute cake" and found this easy recipe.
