Mug Cakes - instant cake satisfaction

Mug Cakes - Mima Sinclair

I am a great lover of cake but sometimes the thought of having to wait an hour for a cake to bake is too much like torture for me. Mug Cakes removed any of these concerns, making cakes in just a couple of minutes.

The book contains 40 recipes (I have not counted but that is what the cover claims!) so there is always a cake that suits some people. It also has gluten free and dairy free recipes so again this should mean there is something for everyone.

I got this as a gift and although keen to get it I was also a bit dubious that the cakes would not taste that good but I shouldn't have worried as they tasted delicious.

One of the benefits of Mug Cakes is that you can always have a source of cake even if you haven't been to the shop. When I had visitors we each chose a cake that we wanted and had ingredients in the house for and each cake and all were enjoyed by use and M.

For each cake you only need a tablespoon or two of each ingredient and can make additions of certain ingredients if you want. It means you don't have to have huge bags of flour a cake to be made.

Each cake needed a mug, some bigger than others, but assuming you have a selection of mugs at home you will be sorted.

Each cake takes a couple of minutes in the microwave and come out tasting wonderful. You can then enjoy hot cake (or you could wait until it cools but why would you?).

Simply wonderful - well loved in this house.
