  1. Hey gemma I love all your recipies and follow you all the time. Kindly mention the ingredients in the description box below . Happy new year!

    1. hi Fizza,
      The ingredients and method will be here on my website. youTube is not a great platform for this type of detail. We did try this too, but found it more satisfactory to have a well developed website, where recipes can be saved, and printed.
      Gemma 🙂

  2. hi gemma what is the new recipe today i hope that it is yummmy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. YOu’re heaven-sent Gemma…. Im in the teaching profession ,but I super love creating…and its been so long that my daughter and i have planned recipes, desserts etc… Im glad you’re there. The decorating/artistic part of doing these recipes makes us excited !

  4. Gemma,
    How could you have done this to me!!?? I’m wondering if I should just toss my microwave?? I’ve tried all of your mug recipes. Unfortunately, even when I don’t follow your recipes exactly, my mugs ALWAYS turn out yummy, scrumptious and ADDICTIVE! Especially, the Banana Bread in a mug. I’ve never bought so many bananas so often in my life. My mugs are bigger now, and my mug (face) is always in a bloody mug. Good thing I found your video and ingredients alternatives chart so I can cut calories, especially after the fact I ate my way through the Holidays. I thank you so much for the great recipes, but my waist and thighs don’t. Oh well, you can’t have everything. Happy New Year!

    1. Leonora, you make me smile! Get out that door with your walking shoes, the few extra pounds will fall away in no time, that is my plan!! I hope it works 🙂
      Hsppy New Year,
      Gemma 🙂

  5. And gemma i know I am a super crazy girl but if you like any of my suggestion then please if you bake it, please tell (in the video) that i gave you this suggestion because i really really really wanna be famous and my friends still don’t believe that i talk to you and you answer my questions( they’re also a big fan of you). Remember I am the girl who is ten and asks alooooooooooooooot of questions (sorry for that again i can’t help it).

  6. Hi gemma! I know s’more recipes are a big hit at BBB (and i am totally obsessed with your recipes) so can please you make s’mores dip (also known as baked s’mores). Those are chocolate (in a pan) and marshmallows and we bake it. At the end we enjoy it with graham crackers. And do you know Rosanna pansino? If yes then watch “bizaardvark”. episode 17 has her ACTING in it. Oh and happy new year to you and your family??

    1. Hi there Minahil,
      It is good to have you with us, offering great suggestions too!
      I will check out the Rosanna acting debut! that sounds interesting.
      I will add your dip suggestion to my list, i find it difficult to give shout-outs during a video as I am trying to focus on the recipe, and i get lots of requests too. However, i will keep you in mind. Happy New year to you and your family, and your friends too! Stay tuned, lots more to come.
      Gemma 🙂

  7. Hi Gemma I am currently loving your channel and I’m obsessed with your mug meals and cake and bigger bolder basics and everything on your channel and yes your no churn ice cream too???

  8. How do you stay so so slim? Your mug cakes are loaded with calories. Do you think you could come up with some that haven’t got so many calories? They are really delicious and hard not to eat the whole thing.

    1. hi Fran,
      Yes, these are calorific, but the portions are small. An occasional treat I would say!
      Happy New year to you and your family, more savory mug meals on the way,
      Gemma 🙂

  9. Hi !!
