We know that sometimes only cake will do.
We are going to let you into a little secret, mug cakes/microwave cakes are an actual thing, they are glorious and they are crazily quick to make.
Here are a few of our favourites…
– Peanut Butter & Jam Brownies
Larger than a mug cake, feeding 6 people instead of 1, these peanut butter and jam brownies are seriously indulgent and ready in only 15 minutes.
This recipe feeds 4 and does use quite a few ingredients you may not have in already but it is oh so worth it.
Prepped and cooked in only 10 minutes.
Top with ice cream and a little splash of liquor if you fancy.
– Microwave Coffee & Walnut Cake
A great recipe for knocking up a last minute cake as it contains ordinary cupboard staples. Super easy, feeds 4 and cooks in 10 minutes.
Didn’t know you could make meringue in the microwave?
Nope, neither did we.
This recipe is absolutely effortless and uses only 2 ingredients.
This chocolate molten cake is sure to hit the comfort spot. Gooey, rich, extra chocolatey and ready in 3 minutes.
Serve with ice cream for a little bit of extra indulgence.
Homemade rice pudding serving 6-8 people.
Does it get any better than homemade rice pudding?
Top and mix with any of your preferred ingredients. We like peanut butter, nuts, and seeds or frozen berries and maple syrup. YUM!
– White Chocolate & Berry Pudding
A delicious summery pudding to warm you up even on the coldest of days.
Serve with custard for extra warmth.
Fancy something a little zingier than the usual chocolate cake.
This fastest-ever lemon pudding cooks in only 4 minutes and goes great with a dollop of créme fraiche.
– Wacky Vegan Chocolate Cake For One
Completely vegan, moist (anybody else hate that word?) chocolate cake in a mug.
Throw in some raspberries, peanut butter or dark chocolate chunks for extra goo factor.

What our students say
Millstone is a brilliant place to live, Ive just book for my 3rd year. The staff are kind and caring. I have love living at Millstone as it has given me independence and a bigger family.
I moved to Mayfair Court 3 years ago and we love it here. My apartment is spacious and enlightened by large windows facing Wilmslow road. Commons, including a flourishing inner garden are well kept. Staff are friendly and always there to help, and the community is diverse. Location is very convenient. There’s a bus stop at the foot of the building, a supermarket across the street, Bodey Medical Centre behind the supermarket, and plenty of restaurants and pubs around. I'm happy to call this place our home while in Manchester.
I have been living in Brickworks about 7 months. Brickworks is a great place to live in. The location is really convenient (close to city center, good public transportation, near the supermarket and so on...). The buildings are pretty new (well maintained and very clean) it also offers study rooms, cinema room, gym, roof top party room and terrace. There are a lot of common areas for entertainment (PlayStation, Pool, table tennis...). Additionally, free coffee and tea services are amazing!
Brickworks team all of them are AWESOME. They are always up for helping... I highly recommend the Brickworks for people who need a place to call home... Thanks for everything.
Searched for loads of student accommodation before I found this gem amongst the rest. Really nice sizeable apartments in a great student busy location. Would highly recommend Mezzino.
Living at The Junxion has been a very homely experience for me, as from moving in on my first year of university I was a little nervous about living on my own so far away from my home in Liverpool; but that all change once I moved into my new room, as the buildings interior design gives off such a relaxing vibe that will allow you to study in peace. Although the staff in the building where so very comforting to speak to and will offer guidance on pretty much anything, as they are always there to help. Other than that I would highly recommend The Junxion to anyone as I am currently a second year living with my friend at The Junxion and I couldn’t feel more at home.
Excelente ubicacion, atencion y servicio. Muy cuidado todo, las recepcionistas siempre ayudando y dando atencion. Lo recomiendo.
