A mug cake is a real homemade cake using all the ingredients you would put in a regular cake. They only takes a few minutes to make and cook so perfectly for our excited and impatient children. It is so simple and the only equipment you require is a mug, a fork or whisk and (sometimes) a bowl. There is even no need to weigh anything – we can just measure out in spoons.
This recipe is so lovely for kids to do for their beloved Mom & Dad for Valentine’s Day.
The brilliant thing about this is, it is so perfect for children – totally do-able, very little mess, portion controlled and it allows them to achieve and grow and develop their sense of self belief and their growth mindset.
With fun & deliciousness,
