I like to keep my baking simple and easy - no difficult ingredients or weird instructions. I would like to think that when you come across one of my recipes, you can whip it up in an afternoon with things you have lying around in your cupboards!
This is also one of the reasons I love mugcakes. It is basically a little cake in a mug, which you cook in the microwave rather than in the oven. The whole process is usually done in less than 10 minutes and then you got yourself a warm, tasty treat. Being the chocoholic I am, I usually make a dark chocolate mug cake, but last week I decided to create my own recipe for something a little more autumnal. Expect a ton of cinnamon coming your way these upcoming months (it's one of my fave spices to use in baking), starting off with this oh-so-yummy, super gooey cinnamon & apple mug cake!
It's the easiest to start off with cracking the egg in the mug
and to beat that up a little bit. Then add your coconut oil
(make sure it's on room temperature!), honey and almond milk.
Mix this in. Add your flour and baking powder and fold this in.
Add your sugar after this (and mix again, surprise!).
Then add your cinnamon (you'll notice this is quite a lot of
cinnamon for a tiny mug, but trust me, it makes is taste amazing!)
and chopped up apple and mix really well untill all combined.
Microwave for 1-3 minutes. It depends on your microwave
how long it takes, but make sure your cake has risen until
the top of the mug. The top should still look a bit moist
(sorry, I had to use that word).
Be careful when you take it out of the microwave! You usually
have to let it cool down for about a minute before you can
dive in, or otherwise you'll burn your mouth.
But that's really all, so easy!
