Funfetti Mug Cake is a light, fluffy, single-serving vanilla cake bursting with colorful sprinkles that comes together in just a few minutes — the perfect way to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or any special occasion!
Guess what today is??? Five Heart Home’s 3rd blogiversary! That’s right, friends…three years ago today, I gritted my teeth, squeezed my eyes shut, and hit publish on my very first blog post. And I never could have imagined the journey since then…that with lots of hard work, this blog would evolve into my full-time job and, in the past year, even lead to me writing a cookbook. What?! Crazy. So what say we celebrate with sprinkles and cake!
(And don’t forget to scroll down in a moment for the BIG GIVEAWAY!)
Funfetti Mug Cake is my latest microwave mug cake incarnation, and this one is super festive and yummy. Despite the fact that I generally avoid feeding my family food coloring, my kids do adore sprinkles. So we occasionally indulge on special occasions, and today seems as fitting a reason as any! This mug cake batter takes only a couple of minutes to stir together, and then the cake bakes up in the microwave in another minute or two. That means you’re less than five minutes away from your own personal vanilla cake studded with happy, colorful sprinkles!
The base of this mug cake is my tried-and-true recipe. It yields light, fluffy cake, and the sprinkles add little bursts of sweetness and crunch. I added a tiny bit of almond extract in addition to the usual vanilla extract, which I think gives this Funfetti Mug Cake even more of a birthday cake vibe. And if you want to make several mug cakes at once, simply multiply the recipe accordingly, stir up the batter in one bowl, divide it evenly between the appropriate number of mugs, and microwave them one at a time. Looks like a party to me!
To thank y’all for three fun-filled years of amazing support — for visiting, for reading, for making my recipes, for leaving comments, for following Five Heart Home on social media, for sharing it with your friends and family — I’ve put together a little giveaway today. Enter via the Rafflecopter below for your chances to win a $100 Amazon e-gift card, PLUS my new Real Food Slow Cooker Suppers cookbook (which will be shipped to your door once it comes out this fall)!
Five Heart Home is my creative outlet and my dream job in one, and it wouldn’t be possible without y’all…I truly can’t thank you enough. So GOOD LUCK on the giveaway, and after you enter, let’s toast three years of blogging with some Funfetti Mug Cake, shall we? 😉
P.S. When my kids saw me whipping up Funfetti Mug Cakes for this post and inquired why, I explained that it was the 3-year anniversary of Five Heart Home. So those three little stinkers promptly disappeared…and then re-emerged a bit later with homemade congratulatory cards. Sweetest. Kids. Ever. Or maybe they were just buttering me up for some mug cake… 😉
