The last time I baked carrot cake, I was thinking about the mini version of it. You can check my carrot cake recipe under “Cakes and Cheesecake” section. Baking a cake requires time, effort and is meant for more than 2-3 people. For a single serving, mug cakes are the best. These are instant dishes which requires lesser time to prepare with no elaborate ingredients. They also help to satisfy instant dessert cravings

Now Mug cake and Baked cakes will have different texture but the taste is awesome. Oh, this mug cake was absolutely delicious and I have made this more than once.
