Self-taught baker shares how to make red velvet cake in a mug in five minutes


We love dessert and we love it even more when it’s quick to make.

Thankfully an Insta baker has come up with a recipe that takes no more than five minutes to create.

Self-taught chef Eloise Head, who runs Instagram account Fit Waffe Kitchen, is back with another delightful creation – red velvet mug cake.

The London baker shared the quick recipe with her thousands of followers who can’t get enough of her tasty treats.

All you need for this delectable dessert are a few supermarket essentials that you probably already have lying around the kitchen.

To make the red velvet mug cake you’ll need milk, flour, sugar, baking powder, cocoa powder, vegetable oil, and a bit of red food colouring of course.

For the icing you’ll need cream cheese and icing sugar.

You can get the icing ready as you wait for the cake to bake in the microwave.
