Quick & Easy Creme Egg Mug Cake


I'm baaaack! Just Lucy's Life is back with a fresh new look and I am in LOVE! In my mini hiatus I've also planned a lot of new posts so stay tuned for lots of fresh content coming soon. For my first post on my shiny new blog I've got a real treat for you all (get it?), a quick and easy, super indulgent Creme Egg mug cake! *drools* 


If you've followed my blog for a while you'll know I like to pick up a wooden spoon every now and then and create sweet treats, last year's Creme Egg cupcakes are still one of my most viewed posts to date and I've even done a salted caramel mug cake before! So of course I had to create another treat featuring a Creme Egg, because they're just the best, aren't they?

The best part about this treat is it's cheap, quick, easy & super delicious! It's also great to cosy up with on these rainy days we've been having recently. I use the mug cake recipe from Wish Wish Wish's blog but usually use vegetable oil instead of butter as it's easier and I use 4 TBSP of water instead of 3, but just use what works best for you, that's the best part about this recipe you can't really go wrong. 

- Recipe -

4 TBSP FLOUR
4 TBSP SUGAR
2 TBSP COCOA
2 TBSP MELTED BUTTER (OR VEGETABLE OIL)
3 TBSP WATER

First of all, mix all the dry ingredients together. Then add in the butter or vegetable oil and water and mix together until combined. 




Now for the Creme Egg!


Flatten down your mixture and cut 1 Creme Egg in half. My mug was big enough to put both halves on the top, but if you're isn't big enough then I think one half in the mixture and one on the top would work great too. 


Once you've done that stick your mug in the microwave for 1 minute. I usually find 1 minute works well for me and leaves it still slightly gooey inside which is what you want. There's no egg so no need to worry! If you want it to be more of a cake texture though put it in for another 30 seconds or so, but be careful as too much can dry it up!


Then, voila! It's ready to eat. I love how the Creme Egg cream melts across the mug cake! It's so nice and the perfect indulgent treat this easter. 

Will you be trying this quick & easy treat this Easter? Let me know if you do and if you love it as much as I do!

  3. This is so cute!! I'm trying to bake more (made some pretty cool cupcakes yesterday) and mug cakes always seem pretty simple but somehow I feel like I'll mess everything up haha!! I'll definitely give them a try though :)
