  2. Add in carrots, onion, garlic, mushroom, bell pepper, and oyster sauce.
  3. Cook the noodles together with peanut butter sauce for 5 minutes.
  4. Place noodles on a platter, then top it with the stir-fried chicken, vegetable mixture, wansoy leeks, and roasted peanuts.

Store-bought dessert? Nope, but it’ll definitely look like it. Stock up on MAYA Happy Mug Cake Mix’s two flavors, chocolate cake with caramel sauce or caramel cake with chocolate sauce. Just follow the instructions on the back to prepare your base. Now, here’s the exciting part: upgrade your mug cakes!

  1. Add mashed bananas (best with chocolate cake), sweet matcha powder, ube jam, strawberry jam, or cookie butter into the mixture.
  2. Pop these little treats in the microwave for 2 minutes
  3. Drizzle the sauce over the top as you add fresh fruits and whipped cream before digging in—the same way your fave pastry chefs do.
