WHEN YOU NEED MUG CAKES

  • For something sweet at lunchtime
  • For an afternoon snack when you hit that slump
  • At work with a cuppa, just take your dry ingredients & wet ingredients to work with you in separate tubs, pour into your mug, stir and microwave for 1 minute to the jealousy of your colleagues
  • For dessert for one
  • As a treat for kids
  • When you don't have time to make a batch of brownies
  • When you don't want a full batch of brownies tempting you
  • When you need that chocolate or cake fix quick

MUG CAKES


I love mug cakes.

My son loves mug cakes and my husband loves mug cakes.

In fact, that husband who never goes into the kitchen unless I'm passing him some food is actually venturing in there and making them for himself.

Last night he made himself my jam pudding mug cake and tucked into it with a dollop of Swedish Glace vanilla ice cream (vegan) on top.

WHY MUG CAKES ARE SO GOOD?


  1. They are the perfect portion for one.
  2. They are super quick.
  3. They use a small quantity of ingredients.
  4. They are cheap.
  5. They are very easy to make, even for children or those who aren't confident in the kitchen.
  6. There's only a mug, a spoon and a measuring spoon to wash up.
  7. They taste great!

WHAT TYPE OF MUG SHOULD I USE?


You want a large mug for making mug cakes. The sort you might use for soup or hot chocolate.

I like glass mugs as you can see the mug cake, which is rather nice.

In case you are wondering, my panda mug is from Asda.

Oh and most importantly make sure your mug is microwave safe.

MICROWAVE POWER

Microwaves vary in power.

My microwave is 800 watts.

If your microwave is a higher wattage you may find this brownie is ready in 40-45 secs.

If you have a lower wattage microwave, it may need an extra 10-20 seconds.

  3. I find this kind of recipes to be too dangerous 🙈 because I can have dessert everyday if I want to! I just love mug cakes, but I haven't tried brownie mug cake yet. I can't wait to try it this afternoon.

  13. Brownie in a mug is my fave mug cake - mine does not have baking powder so is lovely and dense. I love the sound of oil (instead of melting butter) and golden syrup so will have to give this version a go!
