How many times have you had a sugar craving, only to discover 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. πŸ˜‰ But other times, IneedsomethingsweetandIneeditrightNOW! And in those instances, spending a few minutes throwing together a microwave mug cake seems a bit more refined than scarfing chocolate chips straight out of the bag.

Did y’all happen to catch the One-Minute Chocolate Peanut Butter Mug Cake that I posted last spring? Because it is, to put it bluntly, awesome. In fact, I’ve had quite a few comments from people declaring it the best mug cake they’ve ever tried. And while it’s hard — nay, impossible — to top chocolate and peanut butter, sometimes I’m in the mood for something vanilla-based instead. So I decided to take my Chocolate PB Mug Cake and attempt to remove the chocolate…and the peanut butter. And would you believe my efforts were a success?!

Snickerdoodle Mug Cake ~ bakes up in the microwave in just one minute, yielding a warm, cinnamon-sugary treat that will satisfy any sweet tooth! | FiveHeartHome.comI clearly have a thing for cinnamon, seeing as how I’ve already shared cinnamon-y variations of popcorn, candied pecans, quick bread, muffins, and coffee syrup. So what would be more natural than a cinnamon sugar mug cake that ends up tasting like a soft, warm, snickerdoodle cookie?

Snickerdoodle Mug Cake is just that…a moist, tender cake, spiced with cinnamon and layered with cinnamon sugar. And y’all…it can be crossing your lips in under five minutes from start to finish! Just a few basic ingredients are mixed, poured into a mug, and microwaved, and before your very eyes the batter transforms into cake, rising up to the top of the mug and then collapsing a bit once the baking stops.

(Oh, and I realize that y’all are smart enough to figure out how to layer the batter with cinnamon sugar, but I was playing around with baking one of these in a clear mug…so you get a photo. It was actually fun to watch the batter transform into cake, like some nerdy food blogger science experiment.)

Snickerdoodle Mug Cake ~ bakes up in the microwave in just one minute, yielding a warm, cinnamon-sugary treat that will satisfy any sweet tooth! | FiveHeartHome.comA mug cake is perfect for those there’s-nothing-sweet-in-the-house sugar cravings. But since making it does require minimal effort, it’s easy enough to stop at one. And one mug cake can even be shared! I actually make a couple of mug cakes for dessert sometimes and split them between our family of five.

Since all microwaves vary in strength, you may have to experiment a bit the first time you make this cake. My Snickerdoodle Mug Cake was done to my liking in one minute and 15 seconds, which is slightly longer than I bake my Chocolate Peanut Butter Mug Cake, since I prefer that one to have a molten center. I also advise you to place a plate under your mug the first time you make this recipe to catch any potential spillage. Using a straight-sided mug will help your cake cook evenly, and I find that a 14-ounce mug is the perfect size to prevent overflow. But again, experiment with what you’ve got and you’ll quickly figure out the winning formula.

If you like cake…if you enjoy snickerdoodles…if you’re a fan of instant gratification…if you own a mug…this Snickerdoodle Mug Cake recipe was made for you! Please say that you’ll try it and let me know what you think? And then go ahead and try the Chocolate Peanut Butter Mug Cake and let me know which one you like better. Because for me? Honestly, it’s a toss-up at this point. They’re totally different but equally scrumptious. Guess I’ll keep making them both until I can decide a clear winner. <insert fake sigh> Food blogging is a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it… πŸ˜‰

Snickerdoodle Mug Cake

Yield: 1 mug cake

Snickerdoodle Mug Cake

Snickerdoodle Mug Cake bakes up in the microwave in just one minute, yielding a warm, cinnamon-sugary treat that will satisfy any sweet tooth!

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup milk, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • For layering/topping:
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon until thoroughly, completely combined, with no streaks of any ingredients remaining. Blend in 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.
  2. Microwave on high for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, or until cake is done to your liking. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes before serving.

Notes

A tall, cylindrical mug with straight (not angled) sides will ensure that the cake bakes evenly. I found a 14-ounce mug to be the perfect size to allow the cake to rise up while baking without overflowing. (I filled my mug to the top with water and then transferred the water to a measuring cup to determine its capacity.) If you use a smaller mug, you may want to bake the cake on top of a plate or paper towel to catch any possible overflow.

The strength of individual microwaves can vary. The first time you make this recipe, be prepared to experiment a bit to make sure that 1 minute is the perfect length of baking time. The nice thing about this cake is that even if it is undercooked, you don't have to worry about raw eggs!

Unsalted butter will work just fine in this recipe, but I find that using salted butter adds a tiny flavor boost.

  1. wait…you mean scarfing chocolate chips straight from the bag by the handful ISN’T refined?? I guess this means I have to try this now. After causally walking by and ignoring the oatmeal raisin cookies on the counter…I’ve yet to try a mug cake I really like but something tells me this one will be divine!

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Ha, Meaghan…refined or not, I have no reservations about eating chocolate chips straight out of the bag! But mug cakes can be a nice change of pace… πŸ˜‰ Hope that this is the mug cake you’ve been looking for! If you like chocolate & peanut butter, you should check out that one, too…I adore them equally. πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by…have a fabulous week!

  2. Wow! This sounds delicious! I had a snickerdoodle cookie when I visit the USA in February 2015 it was so good! Can’t wait to try this recipe! Thanks for sharing!

    Em πŸ™‚

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      I hope you love this mug cake, Emma! Hopefully it will measure up to the American snickerdoodle you so fondly remember… πŸ˜‰ Thanks for taking the time to comment and I hope you’re having a wonderful week!

  3. I love mug cakes, but have to be careful making them because I’ll want to make another right away! Snickerdoodle is a great flavor and I can’t wait to try this πŸ™‚

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      You are so right, Megan…mug cakes are juuust convenient enough to be dangerous! πŸ˜‰ Hope you enjoy this snickerdoodle twist if you have a chance to try it. Have a fabulous week!

  4. you are amazing…I want one now! Sharing and pinning and totally making this for my cheat day this week!

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Thanks so much, Kristen…I appreciate the share and the pin and I hope you enjoy every bite of this on your cheat day! πŸ˜‰ Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

  5. Just something about mug cakes that taste better!

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      I couldn’t agree more, Lori! Maybe because mug cake is still warm when you eat it? And this past week I discovered that vanilla ice cream on top is a nice contrast to this warm snickerdoodle cake…I’m in major trouble now! πŸ˜‰

  6. Wow…what a scrumptious little treat. I love the idea of a mug cake. I have never tried one and can’t wait for this yummy recipe to be my first. Thanks for sharing! PINNED!

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Thank you, Michelle! I appreciate the pin and I hope you love this if you end up trying it. πŸ™‚

  7. Sam – I LOVE you! What a brilliant idea. I can’t wait to try this. Your gorgeous photos always grab me by the neck and make me drool. Thanks much for sharing at Weekend Potluck!

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Thank you for stopping by, Marsha, and thanks (as always) for the fun party!

      I wanted to let you know that I’m so sorry about your dad. I tried to leave a comment on your blog post the other day but the comment form wasn’t working for me for some reason. Big hugs, prayers for you and your family, and my deepest condolences…

  8. Oh, yum! I love snickerdoodles and always make a point to NOT buy snacks for myself. This may just need to be made in the next few days. Going to check out the chocolate/PB version too!

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Ha, Leslie…I like mug cakes because they’re easy enough to whip up quickly, but there’s just enough effort involved to give me time to stop and ponder whether I really need a treat in the first place. πŸ˜‰ Hope you enjoy this if you try it…and the chocolate one, too! Happy Friday!

  9. This mug cake looks so delicious! And of course being so quick to make how can I not try this ASAP?! If you had a spare moment, I would be delighted if you’d drop this (and anything else you’d like to share) by at the #PureBlogLove DIY and recipe link party!

  10. My gosh! These photos are making me drool!. Thanks for linking up at Funtastic Friday. Hope to see you again this week.

  11. YAY for you Sam! This lovely recipe is one of our featured at this week’s Weekend Potluck! I have the printed recipe sitting on my counter and I hope to make it this weekend. So glad you are willing to share with us…keep em coming…please! Enjoy a super weekend.

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      I hope you love it, Marsha! I think it’s about time I whip up another one for myself… πŸ˜‰

  12. eileensideways says:

    delicious. mine took 1 min and a half. if u cook it too much, it gets rubbery. i think vanilla ice cream would be perfect with it or a dollop of whip cream.

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Glad you enjoyed your mug cake, Eileen! And yes, if you microwave this too long, the texture will definitely suffer. As far as ice cream or whip cream on top, I can tell you from firsthand experience that it makes this cake even better — ha! πŸ˜‰

  13. Barbara F. says:

    i have tried a few mug-in-a-cup recipes and they have not really worked, but I couldn’t resist giving this one a try. Soooo glad I did! I am making a second one now as a treat for my college-aged daughter who came home sick for the weekend. Snickerdoodle is her absolute favorite. And what could be better than a warm cake all to herself. I just discovered your site and will be back for more….there’s chocolate and peanut butter here! Thanks for the great recipe.

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      You are so welcome, Barbara! I’m glad you enjoyed it, I hope your daughter did, too, and I hope she’s feeling better! Thanks for taking the time to comment, and have fun exploring the site for more goodies. πŸ™‚

  14. Your photos are gorgeous and just adds to the perfect dessert! I don’t know what is better, the recipe or the photograph! lol I’m going to share this. Thanks for linking this up at Totally Terrific Tuesday last week. It is live right now! Can’t wait to see what else you have to share! Hope to see you there!

  16. Joanna Krell says:

    So yummy! The kids and I gobbled them up with a tall glass of milk! Delicious, fun to make and definitely satisfied my late night sweet tooth. Thank you so much for the fantastic recipes. My family is really enjoying everything I have made!

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      So happy y’all loved these, Joanna! And I’m thrilled that you’ve enjoyed all of the recipes that you’ve tried from the site so far…it makes my day to hear that. πŸ™‚ Happy Friday!

  17. This was actually so good! I was surprised. Wow, I’m really satisfied. Thank you!

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Ha ha, Mimi…well I’m so happy you were pleasantly surprised by how this mug cake turns out! πŸ™‚ Hope you get to enjoy it again the next time you have a craving for a little something sweet… πŸ˜‰

  18. I haven’t tried this out yet but I images, if it is like the brownie mug recipe, you will want to spray the mug with cooking spray. That will for sure save you some time.

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Great tip, Althea! I don’t use cooking spray if I’m going to be eating this cake straight out of the mug, but spray would definitely help if you want to overturn the mug and have the cake slide out. πŸ™‚ Hope you enjoy this recipe if you have a chance to try it!

  19. i’ve just tried it. Absolutly the best mug cake ive ever made

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      That’s wonderful to hear, Bees! Thanks for taking the time to share. πŸ™‚

  20. This looks amazing but what to do….. In the netherlands we don’t work with cup we work with ml

    Can you tell me what the recipe will be if doen in milliliters???

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Hi Nicole! I’m so happy you want to try this mug cake, but I apologize that I am not experienced in converting recipes to the metric system. If you Google a baking conversion calculator, you should be able to find a tool that will give you the measurements you need. Good luck and enjoy! πŸ™‚

  21. Missy Schafer says:

    This was the perfect small dessert for my daughter and me to share. It was scrumptious! Thanks for sharing it.

  22. Oh wow, that was yummy. I used coconut oil instead of butter because that’s what I had. I love that since it doesn’t have any egg I didn’t feel bad about tasting (and almost devouring) the batter, which was also delicious. And I was able to undercook it just a little, leaving a tiny bit of gooeyness at the bottom (my mug is slightly sloped), which I loved. To me it tasted like a much more delicious, fluffier version of sweetened pie dough. I did taste a little bit of that homemade-cake-nuttiness as well. Soooooo good, thanks!

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      I’m so happy that you enjoyed this, Brie! I bet it was extra yummy with coconut oil…I’ll have to try that next time! πŸ™‚

  23. I can’t get over how outrageously delicious this looks!!!!

  24. Thank you very much for this really good recipe! I will share it on my blog in french.

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      How fun, Corinne…wish I could read it in French! πŸ˜‰ I hope that you and your readers enjoy this recipe!

  25. Roberta Wolf says:

    Moist and absolutely delicious. My whole house smells wonderful too.

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      I’m so glad you enjoyed this, Roberta! And I agree…as a bonus, it makes a pretty nice air freshener for just a minute or so in the microwave — ha. πŸ˜‰ Thanks for taking the time to comment and I hope you have a great weekend!

  26. Catherine says:

    one word: WOW! This cake is amazing!!!!!!!! I’m eating it right now after my exam it’s very good πŸ˜‰ I have to show it to my mom for sure! (by the way I hate cakes but this one is amazing!)

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      So happy to hear that you enjoyed this mug cake, Catherine! And I’ll take it as the highest compliment that you typically dislike cake but loved this one. I’m sure you definitely deserved a yummy treat after your exam. πŸ˜‰ Hope your mom loves it, too!

  27. I started a gluten free diet today and was craving cake but was too tired to hunt out a gf recipe/make a proper mix! Anyway, I tried this with gf flour and it came out absolutely delicious! Definitely saving it.

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Fantastic, Becky…I’m so happy to know that this recipe works with gluten-free flour! I’m sure your comment will help someone else wondering the same thing. πŸ™‚ Glad it was a hit, and I hope you’re having a great week!

  28. I just tried this and it was the best mug cake recipe I have ever tried. I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfect. Everyone was craving something sweet, and sometimes you just want something besides chocolate, and this satisfied everyone sweet tooth!! Thanks for the recipe!!

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      That’s so wonderful to hear, Monica…thank you for letting me know how much you enjoyed this mug cake! And I don’t know if you saw that I recently adapted this recipe to make a Blueberry Muffin Mug Cake. Hope you get to try that one next! πŸ˜‰ Have a great rest of the week!

  29. What about making this ahead and sitting in the mugs before a dinner party? I’m wondering if this has to be mixed right before “baking” or if it could be mixed and sit for a bit before?

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      I haven’t tried making this recipe ahead of time, Jo, but that’s definitely an intriguing idea. Why don’t you try mixing just one mug cake and letting it sit awhile before microwaving it as an experiment? It would definitely be a fun dinner party dessert if it works! Keep me posted if you decide to try it. πŸ™‚

  30. Mandeline Kuhar says:

    I normally have a sweet tooth but now that I’m pregnant its even worse then before and hard to control. We try not to keep many desserts in the house so my husband and I don’t over indulge. Sometimes my sweet tooth just gets to strong and I need a little e something. I’ve tried a few mug cakes and felt terribly let down, but I am so happy I tried your recipe it is hands down the best one I’ve had!! I can’t wait to make these with my sister for our girls night! Thank you so much for sharing this!

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      I love that this mug cake was a success for you, Mandeline! Hope your sister enjoys it just as much when you make it for her. Have fun at girls’ night! πŸ™‚

  31. Milania says:

    This is amazing! I decided to add chocolate chips in the layers and it was even more amazing

  32. Milania says:

    ADD CHOCOLATE CHIPS IN EACH LAYER YOU WONT REGRET IT

  33. This one really is good!. I’ve tried a few mug cakes and found the texture or flavor off… this one really is good… nice texture too and very flavorful!..

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      So happy you enjoyed it, Kim! My goal was for this mug cake to taste like a regular (non-microwaved) cake, so I’m glad to hear that you were a fan of the flavor and texture! πŸ™‚

  34. I was looking for a quick and easy treat to make and came across this and I couldn’t have been happier with the results! I made a couple for my sisters and they all loved them! (I’m eating my second one right now..)

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      I’m glad that this mug cake was such a hit, Cassie! And what a nice sibling you are to make it for your sisters… Hope you all enjoy this recipe for many mug cakes to come! πŸ˜‰

  35. This is an amazing recipe…. added tip… add a dollop of salted caramel sauce / chocolate sauce and let it melt into the core…. a.m.a.z.i.n.g!

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Oooo…I like the way you think, Jes! I’ll have to try the dollop of caramel/chocolate sauce next time…thanks for the tip! πŸ˜‰

  36. Hello! I made this with soy milk and dairy free butter (added a few pinches of salt). Absolutely delicious! Thanks for creating and posting this recipe (-:

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      So glad this recipe worked out with your substitutions, Paige, and I’m very happy to hear that you enjoyed it! πŸ™‚

  37. Easily, THE most annoying thing when clicking onto a blog post, is having a surprise video start playing at me from the very bottom of my mobile browser. I’m not trying to be a jerky punk, but I thought I’d let you know that is something that will immediately turn off so many people from reading a blog. Please rethink having the YouTube video?

    Love,
    All nursing mothers, slackers at work, and insomniacs surfing beside their sleeping hubby πŸ™‚

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Hi Jen! Thanks for letting me know. There are actually not supposed to be any pop-up videos with volume playing on my site. If I ever see one slip through, I report it to my ad network and they are supposed to immediately block it. Unfortunately, I’m not privy to everything that slips through, so I appreciate it when a reader reports it to me. I do have non-volume ads in my sidebars and at the top and bottom of my site, and the revenue from these ads allows me to work on this blog as a job and continue providing content. However, I find intrusive ads as annoying as you do and I have refused to allow photo-overlay ads, pop-up ads, video ads with volume, etc. on my site (even though they earn more money), because I want my readers to have an enjoyable experience when they visit my blog. Anyway, that’s all a long explanation to say that I’m sorry. The ad that you saw was not supposed to be there, much less wake anybody up. I do what I can to stop them but ultimately, there are some that slip through. I’m not able to personally place each ad on my site — an ad company does that — so sometimes it’s out of my control. Again, I apologize, and thanks for letting me know. πŸ™‚

  38. I would post a pic of my Snickerdoodle Mug Cake , but the cup is empty! It smelled sooooooo good, I had to drive right in! This was my first mug cake. It will not be my last!

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      So happy to hear that you enjoyed it, DeAnna! It never lasts long when I make it either… πŸ˜‰

  39. just eating eating…perfect! Being honest i was not sure about the taste and mixture as the recipe is egg free,but what comes to savor is completely delightful! I have posted a photo in instagram and tagged you,thanx again,good morning from Greece!

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      I’m so happy you enjoyed this mug cake all the way from Greece! Thanks for taking the time to let me know that it was a hit. πŸ™‚

  40. This is by far the best microwave mug recipe I’ve tried! Excellent flavor and texture! This is the first I’ve found that doesn’t turn out to be a mug of hot goop.

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Yay, Megan…glad you enjoyed this mug cake so much! Thanks for taking the time to come back and let me know. πŸ™‚ Hope your week is off to a great start!

  41. THANK YOU FOR THIS! πŸ™‚ I’ve been wanting snickerdoodles for weeks, but baking up a few dozen when I’m trying to cut back on sweets seems counterproductive. This was perfect for satisfying my sweet tooth!

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      You are so welcome, April! Glad that you enjoyed this mug cake so much…it’s definitely perfect for quickly satisfying a snickerdoodle craving without ending up with a whole batch of cookies. πŸ˜‰

  42. This was a nice sweet treat for a late night me time! I thought it was missing something that would make it taste more like a snickerdoodle and then I realized it needed cream of tartar! Next time I am going to add some and see if that makes it the perfect taste match. Otherwise, I really liked it!

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Great idea, Lucinda! I may have to try that the next time I make this recipe as well. πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing!

  43. I made the snickerdoodle mug cake with self rising flour and omitted the banking powder. So tasty. I only used about a teaspoon of sugar and did a visual adjustment of the cinnamon for the topping. Loved it.

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      So happy to hear that you loved this mug cake, Loren! And thanks for sharing the recipe adjustments that you made…and letting us know that they worked! πŸ™‚

  44. ok.. what did I do wrong? I followed the instruction perfectly and ended up with a runny mess even after I put it back for another minute. I’m an experienced mug cake maker so I’m not sure what happened- no egg right?

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Hi Judee! I’m not sure what could have happened. I’ve had overwhelmingly positive reviews on this recipe. You are correct that there is no egg…leaving it out prevents the cake texture from becoming gummy. At any rate, I hope you have better luck if you decide to give this mug cake another try! πŸ™‚

  45. Hey there! I’ve made this mug cake numerous times since there’s rarely ever anything sweet in my house, and I love it! But the first time I made this I had no butter, so I substituted vegetable oil for the butter, and it was equally as delicious! I think I actually prefer to use the oil rather than the butter because the sugar melts into the cake and makes it 1000x better! Thank you so much for this recipe!

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      I’m glad to hear that you enjoy this recipe so much, Nicole! And thanks for sharing your tip about using vegetable oil. Happy New Year! πŸ™‚

  46. Thanks for this recipe. We tried it and it turned out great. I had to tweak it a little bit: it was a little underdone in our microwave at a 1:30 so we increased the time to 2:00 and it was perfect. Also I like to add a tablespoon of mayonnaise to all of my mug cake recipes to replace the egg if it doesn’t call for one. I find it keeps the cake from drying out too much. This cake reminded me of a cobbler. So for one one I added a canned peach cup (the single serving kind) to the bottom and it turned out perfect! Almost like the peach cobbler we make when we go camping.

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      So glad this was a hit, Jenn, and your peach cobbler version sounds delicious! Thanks for taking the time to share all of your tweaks. πŸ™‚

  47. I just wanted to let you know this was exactly what we needed for my baby girl’s 1st birthday tonight. The party is this weekend, but after dinner, I was craving something quick to celebrate and for the 3 of us to enjoy. It was so quick and easy, she played happily in her high chair after dinner while I whipped it up, stuck a candle in it, and enjoyed with 3 forks. πŸ™‚ Simple ingredients I wasn’t worried about giving her and the perfect little treat. (and her first cake!) Just wanted to share that you made our night for us. So thanks for the perfect treat. πŸ™‚

      Awww, your comment made me smile, Erin! Happy 1st birthday to your little one and I’m so glad she enjoyed this as her first cake! πŸ™‚

    This was delicious. I substituted coconut oil for butter, and stevia for sugar… And I was actually out of vanilla… But this was still Amazing 😍

      So happy to hear that this recipe worked with your modifications and that you enjoyed it, Danylle! πŸ™‚

  49. May I ask you a question? Since the majority of people in Europe don’t have a microwave in there home, can we do this recipe by putting the mug in the oven? If so, at what temperature?

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Hi Sara! I don’t see why this wouldn’t work in the oven. Just make sure the mug you use is oven-safe, and preheat your oven to 350Β°F (about 177Β°C). I’m not positive on the baking time, but I’d probably let it bake for about 10 minutes and then check it. From there, I’d keep an eye on it for a few more minutes until it tests done. Hope this helps and good luck!

  50. My husband and I tried these last night for our midnight snack. They tasted pretty good… I’m going to have to try some more. Thanks!

      You’re very welcome, Amy! I’m glad they were a hit…and that’s my kind of midnight snack! πŸ˜‰
