Mine & Yours Valentines Desserts - Simple Lemon and Chocolate Mug Cakes

I love desserts. I mean if you've followed my blog for long enough you must have realised that by now. It's one of the first things I look for on a menu and if a restaurant doesn't do good desserts? Chances are I don't want to go. When we buy or make desserts at home it's a bit of a tricky one. I love chocolate, my husband doesn't. He prefers lemon desserts. Now don't get me wrong I love lemon too, not as much as he does but for my desserts should be chocolate. So often one of us has to compromise, I'm not saying which one of us gives in. But I've found a solution and it's easy. Wahey!
Mug cakes. They remind of being a student, not that I lived away, I stayed home but I'd often make myself one of these when I got back from uni. When I made them back then they were a tough rubbery. I'm pleased to tell you a lot has changed since then and I'm really happy with how these both turned out. There perfect for when you prefer different desserts, or if your single why not bake yourself one. Who needs a partner, huh? 

So whether you like lemon or chocolate I've got your back. Or you could share them? (If you're the food sharing kind?).

Also why not go the whole hog and buy your partner the mug you bake it in? I designed my own on Mr Nutcase and I think it's just perfect for Valentines Day.
