Mug Cakes

Mug cakes are such a great way to satisfy that sweet tooth without making an entire cake. Less effort, less mess, and endless possibilities for flavors, mix-ins, and toppings!

How do you make a mug cake?

You can use a cake mix or start from scratch to mix up the batter. Some recipes even have you do the mixing right in the mug or ramekin (extra points for fewer dishes)! Pop it right into the microwave (or bake it in the oven kind of like a cupcake). Add a scoop of ice cream on top, and enjoy a delicious, warm cake for one!

How do you remove a mug cake from the mug?

You don't! Grab a spoon and dig on in. But if you really want to remove it from the mug, you'll need to mix the batter in a separate bowl and then pour it into a greased mug. After it cooks, use a silicone jar scraper to gently pop it out.

Can you bake a mug cake in the oven?

Sure! Just make sure you have an oven-safe dish first. And don't forget to use a mitt to remove it from the oven (the reminder sounds silly, but you'd be surprised how easy it is to forget and reach for that mug handle bare handed!). Here are a few fun options for oven-safe (and microwave safe) mugs and ramekins that would be great for mug cakes!
