I’ve got a confession – I’m obsessed with mug cakes.

My sweet tooth is currently out of control folks.  Let’s blame it on the bad weather, the long days indoors and the countless evenings Mer and I spend binge-watching Netflix shall we? It seems that almost every night I find myself craving something sweet. Since I don’t like to bake large quantities of sweets all that often I’ve turned to experimenting with various types of mug cakes to satisfy my cravings. Confession two: I’ve tried almost all of the mug cakes listed below.

Guys, mug cakes are simply amazing. They are just enough to indulge that sweet tooth without going overboard. They are delicious, easy to make, reduce waste from uneaten leftovers and are super cost efficient without necessarily requiring a bunch of one-time use baking ingredients that’ll inflate your weekly grocery bill.
