Hi Bold Bakers!
The Fall is all about comfort food. When I was growing up, a lot of holiday desserts like gingerbread were full of warm spices that just made you feel good from head to toe. This Gingerbread Mug Cake is a perfect single-serving cake that will give you that warm feeling and it takes as long to cook as it does to mix up from scratch, which is almost no time at all.
Since Fall is here I like to make the most of seasonal flavors, like spices, apples and pumpkin. Don’t get me wrong, Spring and Summer have their perks but there is just something about the Fall and Winter months that I love. Growing up in Ireland, it was pretty much Winter year round so I’m very familiar with cold days and dark evenings.
