Cake in a Cup

I love desserts. If you've read my 'About' page you'll know it to be a simple, but true statement. Although, rarely does the opportunity to have such sweets arise with busy days at the university and fancy dinner parties usually put on hold. Although, this past weekend I had such a craving for vanilla cake. I knew even if I made cupcakes, there was no way I was going to eat them all before they went bad. Luckily, my Mum had a great recipe for a quick and easy cake that takes only 4 minutes, 4 MINUTES to make! So whether you're at university or simply in a mood for sweets like me, then this is the recipe for you!

This recipe is available in vanilla or chocolate so I'll post both for whichever suits your preference : ) Make sure to pick a fun mug! Everything's better with a fun mug. Preferably a large mug is best so I borrowed one of my Dad's favourites.

When it comes out of the microwave done, it should have a slightly gooey top but be a beautiful golden, vanilla colour. Exactly like a normal cake!

Enjoy!
