Mug Cake Mayhem

So, for the last two weeks, I’ve been embarking on a new adventure. Mug cakes. I’ve had them before, we made them at Rangers a few years ago, and I’ve made the odd one at home, but with a new challenge on the horizon, set by my best friend, I knew that I was going to need to start eating lots more cake, and so mug cakes have been my second best friend recently!

I started on Monday with a chocolate mug cake. Of course, it was perfect but I forgot to take a photo, so I made it again on Wednesday, and true to fashion, this one exploded into a big chocolatey overflowing mess. Was tasty though, and I’d definitely recommend!

Tuesday, on recommendation from a friend, I decided to try a cinnamon mug cake. I made this apple cinnamon mug cake from thehungryhedgehog with normal icing due to a hatred for cream cheese, and it was small but delicious.

Friday, I decided to try a mug cookie. I was a bit sceptical about this, but I found a recipe on Sweetest Kitchen, and decided to give it a go. We didn’t have any chocolate chips so I followed the advice of a commenter, and added a spoon of Nutella on top.

Admittedly, I think the cakes were a better option… But it was good enough that I had another on Saturday, this time with ice cream as well!

Sunday, I discovered a this five minute mutella mug cookie cookie. We didn’t any chocolate chips, and I made this in a mug, not on a plate, but it was divine all the same. The picture really doesn’t do it justice. I promise you that it is BEAUTIFUL. This one is definitely going to become a regular in my life, and I think that you should try it too!
