Do you remember the Chocolate Mug Cake  I made some time ago? Well, I called my friend  Laura  the other time and she told me that she had made this cake many, many times since then and she asked if I could make a mug cake without chocolate. I said to her that I was going to try and experiment a little bit and the results would be posted.

So, I did experiment and I did come up with two very tasty variations on this. The one is with orange flavor and the other one is with honey and cinnamon, nutmeg and ground cloves. It never ceases to amaze me how easy, quick and tasty this cake is! Never. It took me practically 12 minutes to make both of them and we devoured them in less than five lol! What can I say? Even though you know very well I am a big, or better say, huge fan of chocolate, I loved both of them  as much for their taste, as for their easiness and quickness in making them.  They can also become handy when unexpected guests come to your house. You can easily prepare them for the exact number of your friends and serve them in the mug. It is so much fun and there are no leftovers. And if anyone asks for a second mug, well it only takes 6 minutes to prepare it! I am telling you it can save your day!

If you crave for some sweet, but you are bored or you don’t have the time to make it, as it often happens in my case, do try these two. You can play with flavors just as I did. If you follow the basic ingredients, then you can try any flavor you like. It is easy, cheap and so much fun to play with this cake!

So, let’s go and see how these two sweet treats are made!

    Τέλειο Κατερίνα μου.
    Πολύ ωραία ιδέα και γίνεται γρήγορα και είναι εντυπωσιακό μπορώ να πω.
    Οι γεύσεις και οι δύο μ αρέσουν πολύ.
    Για να μην πω και βολικά που ψήνονται μέσα στις κούπες.
    Ψήνονται καλά στα μικροκύματα ?

    Φιλιά πολλά
