Satisfying your sweet-tooth


How many times have you had a sugar craving, only to find out that there’s nary a cookie nor a cupcake nor a candy bar in the house? Now that’s not always a bad thing, mind you…sometimes the only thing that prevents me from ingesting too much sugar is the fact that I made a point not to buy or make sweets in the first place. But other times, INeedSomethingSweetAndIneedItRightNOW! Hahaha! 😀 If you’re the same as me and feel like you need to cheat a little, then don’t I have a perfect solution for you 🙂

What is that you might ask??? I made a Snickerdoodle Mug Cake. It was very light and delicious. This Cake bakes up in the microwave in just one minute, yielding a warm, cinnamon-sugary treat that will satisfy any sweet tooth!

Snickerdoodle Cake Mug

Ingredients

1/4 C + 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 C. milk, at room temperature
2 tbsp. unsalted butter
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

For layering/topping:
1 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon

Directions

1. Melt butter in a microwave safe bowl then add milk and vanilla and stir well. Set aside. In another small bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon until thoroughly, completely combined, with no streaks of any ingredients remaining.

2. Gradually mix flour mixture with milk butter, and vanilla until batter is smooth. Into a 14-ounce (or larger) microwave-safe mug with straight sides, scoop a big spoonful of batter, then sprinkle with a spoonful of cinnamon sugar. Alternate layers, ending with cinnamon sugar.
Microwave on high for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, or until cake is ready to your liking. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes before serving.
