Microwave Meals In Mugs!


It seems to be a bit of a craze recently to mix ingredients in a mug and to microwave it to create all sorts of different snacks both sweet and savoury. One of the beauties of these mug meals is that there is no wastage and it takes hardly any time to prepare and cook. We’ve found a website which lists 18 different microwave snacks ranging from meatloaf to banana bread – the possibilities seem endless! I’ve picked my favourite three to share with you. The recipes can be found via the BuzzFeed website but I’ve listed ingredients below for each of my faves….
