oh just this amazing thingLAMINGTONSmisethis is another multi stepmulti mug situation but dooo it even if you don't have the cutest mug ever like i do which chipped a while back causing euivalent damage to my heartaerialthen you gotta shoomp it out onto a platethis cake has holes than G'sM which is one of the problems with mug cakes it's hard to stir the ingredients together properly in such a little spacebut once you frost it and roll it in frosting and coconut and doll it up all nice you'd never know how unstable and porous it is underneathassemblethis one is mighty AND delicious AND sometimes looks like a grumpy monster faceRED VELVET CAKEmiseagain i think i have chosen the perfect mug bowl? for this cakebraaiiiinssszombie braaiiinsssmade even brainier when the frosting is addedi haven't tried it yet; dinner first but i will report backokay so bitebelieve it or not coming from someone who has never given a shit about red velvet anything before this one is a new favorite the frosting was just the right amount of sweetness for the not very sweet cake and it was just warm and gooey and wonderful even sean of the house loved it and he has similar although rudely expressed opinions about red velvet cake so glad i changed my mind and made this one CHOCOLATE GINGER PEAR CAKEmiseokay so i caved and bought crystallized ginger after all this recipe calls for candied ginger in syrup which as far as i can tell is not something that existshas ever existed anywhere so i made my own with crystallized ginger and ginger syrup and it turns out that the only thing cheaper at whole foods than my local grocery store is crystallized ginger so wheefor this one i also used what is precisely defined as a bowl but this time it was definitely necessaryi'm not sure how anyone could fit an entire pear in a proper mug and not have the cake explode up around it plus this is adorabledefinitely cook it longer than it says though because the pear releases juices as it cooks so the cake surrounding the pear takes a while to become cakey then top it with ginger syrup and cocoa powderand yum biteSTICKY TOFFEEmiseaerialmugthis is another one that you dump out of the mug and onto a plate with great messinessgo home mug cake you’re drunkewww and disorderlythis one was really really good i didn't have high expectations; i thought it would just be another not chocolate dried fruit cake and who needs of those right?

    This book arrived and I gave it as a gift to my daughter for her 22nd birthday It was greeted with great delight I think? In any event she does regularly make mug cakes though they're the box mix kind So she'll have to up her game I've offered to bake microwave mug cakes with her especially while she's here at home during the coronavirus lockdown Fun mother daughter activity days await I'm surePS karen say this is the best mug cake cookbook ever So there you go

    This is how I got into this mess is Karen's March project See above for pictures of mug cakes Karen has made than you will even believe is possible for which my family are eternally grateful Inspired by this and who wouldn't be?? I actually took out five Mug Cake books form the library and for the past three days since it is Spring Break here the mug cake baking has continued almost unabated Sometimes there has many as ten people here smaller people let's just say making all manner of concoctions in mugs Med in a microwave yes so instant gratification Not enough pics of this activity in my house to make an entire book of them but some of them are like science experiments Pickles and peppermints yeah why not?? What's corn starch Dad? Do you think putting it with lemon would taste any good? You guys What do you think whipped cream and cherries and ice cream and peanut butter and fill in the blank with your personal food fantasies would taste like? I know you want pictures from MY family sorry but if you look at Karen's pictures imagine a late middle aged man with dozens of kids swirling around him he mildly amused and then annoyed and then okay let's take a little break from mug cakes shall we kids?? Are they any good you ask? Some are pretty great and some are disgusting obviously But this empowerment to get six ten year old boys and girls to see themselves as bakers Right?

    These days it’s all to easy to run out of time for things and it’s far too easy to let baking become a lost art in the time crunchNow of course making mug cakes isn’t baking and it certainly isn’t art But this is a revolutionised kind of baking in single servings for busy people or for people who don’t want to have to wash utensils galore once the cooking is doneAnd you might just be surprised with the resultsHere everything can be prepared and cooked in the same mug Here you need a fork and a spoon at most Here you will find a book for those of us who constantly make excuses to avoid the kitchenThe rest of this review complete with top tips and a list of my favourite recipes from the book can be found HERE

  9. Nadine Jones Nadine Jones says:

    This will be a joint review from me and my daughter Lily Really it should be HER review since she made the mug cakes and took the pictures But I'm the one in the habit of writing long book reviews on GR so here we are Full review pending because my computer is not cooperating

  10. Lilian Goldberg Lilian Goldberg says:

    I have tried various mug cake recipes with rather mixed results These use English teaspoon and tablespoon measures and so far have worked brilliantly Some really innovative recipes in the book as well
