Christmas is a season full of wonder and magic…
And well known for excesses of culinary delights.
The week before Christmas is traditionally baking week in our family.
Shortbreads, cookies, White Christmas, Cherry Brandy balls and so on… it’s been a busy day of baking.
Another favourite for us at the end of the day is hot chocolate and the occasional mug cake…. mmmm.
Last time I shared one of our mug cakes on FB a commenter stated that “mug cakes are SO last year”.
Well, I guess I’m behind the times then because I still love an occasional mug cake for a treat….. it’s quick to make, can serve one or two and there are no left overs to tempt me later on!
Today we tried out the Salted Caramel Mug Cake recipe from HERE.
And it was delicious…. dare I say, just perfect for a day when we are all so busy with Christmas guest check-ins, 2/12” of torrential summer rain, roof leaks and flooding.
A hot chocolate and sugar fix were the perfect pick-me-up today.
Lucky Christmas calories don’t count!
