My sweet and fluffy Vanilla Mug Cake is a decadent treat that you can whip up with only a few ingredients and cook in under two minutes! Everyone will love this quick dessert – the cake cooks in the microwave for just about a minute, but it’ll taste just as delicious as a cake from a bakery!
In a microwave-safe coffee mug or small bowl add the dry ingredients including all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir to combine.
⅓ cup all-purpose flour, 2 ½ tablespoon sugar, ¼ teaspoon baking powder, 1 pinch salt
Add the wet ingredients including melted butter, milk, and vanilla extract. Stir until smooth and make sure that you are scraping the bottom of the bowl or mug to moisten all of the flour mixture. Stir in sprinkles or funfetti if desired.
2 tablespoon butter, 3 tablespoon milk, ½ teaspoon vanilla extract, sprinkles or funfetti
Heat in the microwave on high power for 70-90 seconds until the top is set to the touch and still slightly shiny. Leave the cooked mug cake in the microwave to rest for 1 minute before serving.
All microwaves cook slightly differently, start with 70 seconds and check to see if the top is set. Add small 15-20 second increments if needed to finish cooking the mug cake. *My vanilla mug cakes are usually close to 90 seconds when done.
