Vanilla Cinnamon Mug Cake

My Vanilla Cinnamon mug cake is a great way to have a little dessert with very little effort and clean up. This recipe took several attempts to get the recipe just right. I wanted a light and fluffy cake that was not doughy in the center.

If you are not familiar with a mug cake, it is a cake you can mix together in a mug and bake in the microwave for about 90 seconds. Now that is a time-saving dessert recipe!

I used a 12 oz mug, but you could use a smaller one too.

The result is a cupcake-sized treat that is perfect for an after-school snack or a dessert.

Recipe for vanilla mug cake

It is so easy to put together. Once it is cooked, you can decorate with a little whipped topping and sprinkes.  It was so easy, I decided to show what I did with it once it was cooked in this Vine video:

Because who doesn’t love a little festive topping on desserts?
