Mug Cake

It's surprisingly not overwhelmingly sweet, which is really nice, considering I made these at 10:30 at night.


I am broken. :c
I was at a trampoline park with my cousin the other day, and I missed the trampoline and came down on the little divider beam instead and wrenched my ankle with a loud crack. SO… Now I’m on crutches. Yaaay.

As a result, I’ve spent a lot of time lying on my couch, resting, getting bored, and getting grumpy. Also as a result, I haven’t been able to make anything spectacular for today’s blog post. BUT! I stumbled upon an awesome, quick cake in a coffee cup… thing. You make it in the microwave. It’s snickerdoodley.

I should probably also mention that I’m not doing so well with words today. Sorry, all. :/

So, snickerdoodle cake in a cup. Grab your favorite mug and let’s do this!

First and foremost, here’s what we’ll need:

(Makes two cakes)

Ingredients
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup milk
3 1/2 tablespoons sugar
3 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Topping:
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar

3/4 teaspoon cinnamon


Here’s how you do it:

Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Mix in the milk and melted butter, followed by the vanilla extract, and stir until everything is smooth. In a separate bowl, mix the topping ingredients together and set them aside.

Scoop heaping tablespoons of batter, one at a time, into each of the straight-sided mugs. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar mix between scoops, finishing with a layer on top.

These are not the mugs you are looking for.


Place the mugs one at a time into the microwave and cook for 1 minute 10 seconds, or until the cake is just cooked through. Add another layer of the cinnamon-sugar to the top of the freshly-baked cakes, and let each mug cool for five minutes before enjoying.
