Quick and Easy Carrot Cake Mug Cake

I’ve been on a huge baking spree lately, experimenting with a variety of different cake recipes. While I’ve sampled some truly stellar cakes over the last few weeks, for whatever reason I keep coming back to mug cake recipes. They’re such a convenient way to satisfy your sweet tooth in a healthy way. Take this carrot cake mug cake for example. You can make it from scratch in only three minutes and it’s made with all kinds of ingredients that are full of nutrients as well. The grated carrot provides you with plenty of vitamins and minerals, while the chopped walnuts are a great source of heart healthy fats.
