I sometimes every day it seems fancy something sweet, but don't have anything in. Then I discovered microwave mug cakes! cakecakecake

I've just had a chocolate one with a blob of peanut butter in the middle.

Anyone else, or am I banned from this MN board?

Do you make your own, or do you mean a sort of pre-made 'kit' ?

Simple and reliable.

OMG!! How have I not known about these? And no need for scales, which always puts a huge amount of time into making anything, having to be dragged out of the cupboard and all. Genius!!

Sorry! I just googled recipes. They are so easy! Just need flour, cocoa powder, sugar, veg oil, milk & eggs (loads are egg free).

Love this one

@Tolleshunt exactly!!! Tbh I thought everyone was going to flame me! But they are genius & perfect if you crave something. And soooooooooo quick! All store cupboard stuff.

@BackforGood I just googled recipes - all ingredients from cupboard.

@northernlites they are genius! So many recipes.

@LilQuim thank you for this!!! I will be indulging tonight! I may even buy some custard on the way home for a real treat!! X

@chillimartini if you have Nutella / peanut butter, put a plop in the middle. Omg I'm salivating! Enjoy!!!

Oh, you might struggle to get custard in the mug... I eat mine straight out of the mug! Lol.

YES: to the ones you make yourself. HELL NO: to the kind you mix up from a packet. DSis told me to buy some and I still have two of the manky things cluttering my kitchen...

@vinegarqueen throw that shit out! We will not accept substandard mug cakes!!! cake

@Lilquim Challenge accepted. As Prue would say, they are not worth the calories. Whereas a nice homemade one is lush.

I'm trying your recipe LilQuim. I always feel unjustified making a whole cake when I'm the only one in the house that eats it, so unless I have someone coming over - and have time to make a big cake - I don't make them. Making a single portion, and only having to use spoons and cups, is a real winner!

@vinegarqueen wise words!!

LilQuim Mon 18-Feb-19 09:37:13

@Tolleshunt ooooooh let me know how you like it! It's perfect for when you're the only one who eats cake. I'm
