When you've got a hankering for something sweet but don't want to make a full batch of cookies, mug cakes are the perfect solution. The recipe that follows is bursting with warm winter spices such as ginger, cinnamon and cloves – plus it uses a low-carb sweetener to make it a nearly guiltless pleasure.
This cake is just as delicious without the stem ginger, but if you have some it adds a nice bit of texture to this treat.
