Vanilla Mug Cake

Vanilla mug cake is a light and moist vanilla cake made in a mug. This vanilla microwave cake can be made in a fewminutes. Top this cake mug cake with frosting and sprinkles.

Grab your favorite mug. It should hold at least 10 - 12 oz. (300 - 360 ml) of liquid.

Step 1:  

Place the butter in the mug. Microwave the butter until melted, about 30 seconds in the microwave.

Step 2:  

Stir or whisk in the milk followed by the sugar, vanilla extract, almond extract, salt and baking powder until smooth and well combined.

Step 3:  

Stir in the flour until smooth and well combined. If you would like to add sprinkles or any other mix in, do so now. I like to mix a few sprinkles in and also top the vanilla cake batter with a few more.

Step 4:  

Microwave the mug cake vanilla cake in the microwave for 90 - 120 seconds (1 ½ - 2 minutes). 

Step 5:  

Make the buttercream while the cake cools. Just like with regular cake, the vanilla cake in a mug needs time to cool if you’re going to top with frosting. Mix room temperature butter in a bowl until smooth. Mix in the powdered sugar and milk until smooth and well combined.

Step 6:  

Top the cooled mug cake with the frosting and more sprinkles if you like.
