Laura’s Team Pick:
You know that primal craving that comes to you in the middle of the night(/morning/afternoon)? Those diabetic whispers that nestle themselves comfortably in your ear singing, “sugar, sugarrrrrrrrr”? Well, I’ve found a new way to satiate my need for simple carbohydrates and its name is coffee cake in a mug.
Not only does it look beyond tasty, it is precious. Just think of all the girls you could bring to the yard with an owl full of coffee cake for them and only them.
