I am impressed with this book, I have posted a recipe listing at the end but in short it would make for a great gift for teenagers and adults alike, owing to how easy and tasty the recipes are. Although do note one section is ‘happy hour’ and some cakes do have a couple of tablespoons of alcohol… so maybe not for younger readers.
My wife who also loves to bake ‘regular cakes’ loves the convenience this book offers as well as the novelty, so it’s for baking purists too I believe.
The book has 40 recipes with 10 recipes in each of the 4 main recipe sections:
Treats and Puds
Some of the sections are a bit of stretch – e.g. Almond and Berry Breakfast mug in ‘Occasions’?
But all in all, section controversy aside, the book is filled with inspiring recipes and the majority of which have a very nice and colourful image to accompany them.
It’s early days for us but our first mug cakes have been a taste success, just some have had ‘erupted’ whilst my wife’s cake was a little hard to get out of the mug. All in all though it’s a book we bought on a whim and I’m glad we did. I am now buying another as a gift for our 12 year old neighbour who is very keen on baking, with some recipes for her parents too!
All in all very highly recommended.

Would make a great gift for any cook, and covers quite a spectrum of ability levels really.
Its fun for a wide range of ages, and is good for adults to help little ones cook.... plus its quick and easy to do.
The book is excellent value for money, and is made from good quality materials.
This is actually the 2nd copy I have bought, the original copy I bought as a gift the recipient loved it so much and kept talking about it that I had to buy one for myself!
