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?

I mean – I like a decadent dessert. I love a rich and creamy piece of cake or a fruity and fresh pie that comes out of the oven piping hot. Don’t get me wrong.

But I also love instant gratification and this easy mug cake recipe is more about instant gratification than anything else.
