How to Make a Cake in a Mug

I have a confession to make: I love cake. Baking a cake in a mug sounds like it should be super easy, right? After all, it’s just a tiny little cake.

Cake in a mug is a lot easier to make than you think. In fact, you’ll wonder why you ever bought those boxed mixes that require six different bowls and a hand mixer. Now you can make cake from scratch without all those annoying bowls!

This cute little cake is perfect for that after-dinner treat, or it’s great for breakfast if you’re that kind of person. Either way, it’s super simple to make, and will take less than 5 minutes of active work on your part.

The great thing about this recipe is that you don’t have to use just one mug or one type of mug. You can use different mugs in different sizes for different portions. So if you just want a little bite of cake, use a smaller mug. If you’re having company, use larger mugs.

To celebrate Fall, I know you will love the following recipe. This is so simple, so let’s get baking. Here’s what you’ll need:

Pumpkin Spice Latte Mug Cakes

Ingredients:

2 Tablespoons butter, melted and cooled

1 Egg

3 Tablespoons brewed espresso coffee or very strong coffee, room temperature

1 Tablespoon canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)

1/4 Cup sugar

1/3 Cup Original Bisquick™ Mix

1/2 Teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Pinch of salt

Whipped cream, for serving

Ground cinnamon, for serving

directions:

  1. In small bowl, beat melted butter, egg, espresso and pumpkin with whisk. Add the sugar, Bisquick mix, pumpkin pie spice and salt. Mix until incorporated; batter may be lumpy.
  2. Divide batter between 2 microwavable mugs. Microwave uncovered on High 2 minutes. Cool a few minutes before serving.
  3. Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

TIP #1: If you want to save on clean up mix the batter in one mug, and then pour half of it into the other mug.

TIP #2: If you are not a fan of coffee, you can use another liquid such as water, buttermilk, Chi Tea, milk, etc.

Your taste buds will thank you! This is way better than the canned stuff and a lot tastier than what comes in the plastic bowls.

3/4 Cup heavy whipping cream (Very Cold)

2 Tablespoons powdered sugar

directions:

  1. In chilled medium bowl, beat whipping cream with electric mixer on high speed.
  2. Add powdered sugar before stiff peaks form.
  3. Beat ingredients until stiff peaks form.

TIP #1: For enhanced flavor, try adding a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract when adding the powdered sugar.

TIP #2: Make sure you keep your mixing bowl and your beaters in the freezer until you are ready to use them for best results. And you want your heavy whipping cream very cold too.

TIP #3: This homemade cool whip is great on Pumpkin Pie, Sweet Potato Pie, Strawberry Short Cake or whatever you want to put it on. Enjoy!🧁
