“I really wanted to try to make some carrot cake like the carrot piece cakes that they sell at some cafes. I tried to make it at home, but making the cake required oven, which I don't have at my house, and the cakes were too big for me to make. So I decided to create a simple carrot mug cake that you can make and enjoy at anytime!”
