Introduction

Why a mug cake? It’s easy, delicious and ready in only 5 minutes.

The biggest joys in this world are work and family, the only joys that gives life a meaning” Jean-Henri Fabre, French entomologist

So, for today : Less work and more time with the family!

Because my daddy is the strongest, I used some dark-chocolate.

Because he’s always sweet, I added some raspberries (and it’s summer today!).

Because he’s classy, I added some almond butter.

Because he deserves the best, I finished with some Molitor Origin from Jimini’s.

  • For a gluten-free recipe : I tried with some amaranth flour and it works also perfectly even if the dough doesn’t rise as much.
  • If you don’t have some almond butter and almond milk, you can use normal butter instead.
