Mug Cake Mania


That is all I have to say about this post!  Well, o.k., it is also super easy, super fun, and will totally blow your mind away            at how this works.

Mug Cake

Being a total cake lover (while at the same time knowing that I should not eat a lot of cake!), I have stumbled upon  a way that has revolutionized the thought:

Have Your Cake And Eat It Too

They are called MUG CAKES

and you can have them for dessert, or for breakfast!

All you need is:  a Mug, a Boxed Cake Mix (any flavor you desire - even a gluten free mix), some Water, and a Microwave.

Then it is as simple as 3 - 2 - 1!

3 tablespoons of cake mix, mixed with 2 tablespoons of water, and microwave for 1 minute.  3 - 2 - 1

If desired, add some toppings like:  yogurt, fruit, nuts, or whipped cream.

What I love most about these Mug Cakes is that they make just a small amount of cake to satisfy a sweet tooth, without having to bake a whole cake.  

Storing Mug Cake Mix-1

I also love that you can purchase one cake mix, store it in a jar, and then have it on hand ready to go when you are, without worrying about having to throw excess cake away.  

Super easy, Super quick, Super Tasty 


And if having that little bite of ready-to-go cake in a mug is not exciting enough, how about the fact that with a few different ingredients, you can even enjoy a Mug Cake for breakfast!

Breakfast Mug Cake

1 very ripe banana, mashed

2 tablespoons of almond or peanut butter

1 egg

1/8 teaspoon of baking powder

dash of cinnamon

Mix all of the ingredients together well.  Bake in a microwave for 1 1/2 - 2 minutes.  

*I bake mine for 1 1/2 minutes, but all microwaves are different.  The mix will rise high, like a souffle, but will drop back down when finished baking. 

I LOVE having Mug Cakes for breakfast as it gives me a great portion of protein, which completely fills me for the morning.  Plus, they are so quick and easy, they have become my new breakfast on-the-go.

Cake for breakfast that you don’t have to feel guilty about - now that is my kind of way to start a day!

Let me know if you try  a Mug Cake and hope you enjoy (without feeling guilty)!
