We love making mug cakes at my house because all you need is a microwave and a dream. And you know what? I have both. This microwave mug cake recipe can be altered to suit whatever craving you have and is ready in under 2 min.
Read my instructions below and then swap out bright sprinkles for chocolate chip cookies if that is what you prefer. The choices are endless.
Mug cake recipes WORK because if it’s just you sitting at home watching a movie, you can whip up a serving for one in NO TIME and I just love that. It’s about portion control, but it’s also about the dishes and WAIT TIME.
There is not oven requirements. You literally stand in front of the microwave impatiently for about 2 minutes or so and then you EAT. Are you with me on this?
