Recipe| 4 Microwave Mug Cakes

Cakes! Who doesn’t love cakes? Well, I know some people who absolutely detest cakes and it makes me wonder how can someone not love this amazing creation?!

Fun fact: The ancient Egyptians were the first ones to show evidence of the baking skills and I think that’s where cakes made their first appearances, that is in the 13th century.

Long time, huh? Since then, this finger-licking desert has evolved drastically. There are, cheesecakes, cup-cakes, sponge cakes, mug cakes and oh my god so many more!

But, there is a drawback, it takes so freaking long to make these delish thing to relish on! (haha, that was totally intentional) If you are ever craving cakes, you need to stop being lazy and actually go bake them, and that is a very hard task for today’s generation. On the other hand, people are also lazy to just drive to their local bakery to satisfy their craving!

That’s where the mug cakes enter! These are super easy to make all you need is a microwave, mugs and some other important ingredients and you are good to go! It only takes 10 mins to make them and I suggest you to get up grab all your ingredients and start baking!
