Dessert for One: How to Make a Cinnamon Vanilla Mug Cake!

Last night, I discovered the mug cake. And I’m pretty sure my world will never be the same. Where have these magical, mini desserts been all my life? If you haven’t tried a mug cake yet, prepare for your mind to be blown. The first one I made was vanilla and cinnamon. Amazing. When I immediately made a second one (do not judge), I switched up the spices – cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, cloves – and it became kind of like a chai mug cake. Think I’m moving on to a chocolate mug cake next, so stay tuned for the recipe!

You’ll need:

  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • cinnamon, to taste (I used about 1/4 teaspoon)
  • nutmeg, to taste (I used about 1/4 teaspoon)

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Mix all ingredients. Pour into a mug.
  2. Microwave on high for about 60-90 seconds.
  3. Sprinkle the top with more cinnamon, if desired. Eat straight out of the mug!
