My microwave Christmas mug cake recipe recipe only takes a moment to cook and fills the air with the scent of Christmas.

Based on my Chocolate Mug Cake recipe from my book I adapted it for ITV This Mornings Christmas Special. Which also includes my prawn starter mug meal and my entire Christmas Dinner cooked in a mug!
