Molten Chocolate Mug Cake

Last night, I had a really crazy day, including a dinner party and all I wanted afterwards was tea and dessert. But seeing as there was nothing left I decided to make something so quick and easy. It took the same amount of time as my tea took. So I was ready to snuggle in my blanket within 5 minutes. Which is perfect! You don’t want to miss out on this recipe. 

Recently I got a request on my Youtube channel from Salbiyyah from Malaysia. She also asked for my molten chocolate mug cake! It was the perfect time to make it! You definitely want to try it asap. Trust me, it’s easier and quicker than making a whole cake! The best cake for those late night cravings!
