Marks & Spencer is offering pre-made mixes that you put in a mug and microwave. 

The new Cuppa Bakes are simply a matter of stirring in butter and milk, and then pressing go. The retailer is also offering ready-made sauces to pour on when the bakes are done.

The mixes come in three flavours – lemon & poppy seed, raspberry & coconut, and salted caramel & chocolate.

The first is a lemon and poppy seed sponge with a lemon sauce, the second a chocolate sponge with a salted caramel sauce and the third a desiccated coconut sponge with a raspberry sauce.

Cuppa Bakes cost £3 each and will be available from April onwards.
