Take a microwave-safe mug and add all the dry ingredients — all-purpose flour, nutmeg powder, cinnamon powder, baking powder along with salt — as per the measurements mentioned above.

Mix them using a fork. Then add refined oil along with milk and mix. Once mixed, add the star ingredient — 2 tablespoons of grated carrot. You can add half a tablespoon extra if you want the flavour to be prominent.

For a nutty flavour, add walnuts. Mix to combine everything and then place the mug in a microwave for 1 minute.

Now, take 1 tbsp cream cheese (you can make it with this recipe) and add 1 tbsp honey to it. Mix nicely and spread it on the cake.
