Epic Chocolate Mug Cake Recipe (cake in under 5 minutes!)


As we head into the cooler months it’s time to welcome back Mug Cakes (ok maybe they never left).

We love mug cakes for many reasons but really the main reason is that they are soooo quick to make.

You feel like cake? Cool, you can have cake in around 5 minutes. Voila. 

The other reason is that you can kind of go crazy with the toppings and just make it look oh so drool worthy.

We recommend topping with dark chocolate, yoghurt, berries and peanut butter. Is there really any better combo? We think not.

Ok! Let’s get mug caking, if you do make this recipe, let us know, we’d love to see it on the socials! Tag us @themerrymakersisters 

Always merrymaking,
