Baking is something that I thoroughly enjoy doing; I find it cathartic and obviously, there isn’t much that beats snacking on homemade cake with a big mug of tea now, is there? However, sometimes I can’t be bothered with the washing up and just want a quick cakey fix. That’s when my trusty mug cake recipe comes in handy! Perfect for a little January pick-me-up. Diet? What diet? Enjoy.

    Ooh this is like a hot chocolate you can eat! I’d be even more indulgent and add cream and marshmallows to mine for the full effect. Love that mug cakes don’t make a mountain of washing up.
