Mug cake

You may have eaten a cup cake, but have you tried a mug cake? One of my aunts, Kristine Hornblow, sent me this recipe recently, and I recommend it as it is particularly quick and easy to make. The whole thing is made in a mug, cooked in the microwave, and can be eaten straight out of the mug too, so no other dishes are required.

      I guess I will have to make it again sometime and take a photo.

      • What about the photos that came with the recipe?

      • I did not take them, so I cannot trust them. Mine would have been a bit different to that made by whoever took those.
