My kiddos and I love mug cakes! We often whip.them.up as a quick dessert after dinner. I love that you made oat flour using oats. We always have oats so this is perfect!
I love mug cakes! Just as much as you want and fresh! Love the topping ideas 🙂
You and me both Dana, Yess you’re absolutely right! Like a freshly baked cake to enjoy all to yourself 😉 Thankyou, so glad you like those ideas! What are your favourite toppings? ?
Simple, quick recipe, worked well but lacked sweetness. Was fine topped with custard or I think next time will top with Natvia Salted Caramel or Natvia Maple syrup. Makes it entirely sugar free but adds sweetness.
