I love mug cakes! They are simple to make and perfect for when I want just a little something sweet. If I bake an entire cake, I usually end up eating at least 3 or more slices. With a single serve mug cake I can satisfy my sweet tooth and don’t have leftovers to tempt me later.
I also enjoy making mug cakes with my kids. Each of them can fill their mug with ingredients and have their own dessert! No more fighting over who got the bigger piece of cake (If you have multiple kids you know they fight over anything.) My kids love having their own dessert that they helped make.
The best part about mug cakes is you don’t have to wait an hour for it to cook. Just mix up a few ingredients and microwave for a minute or two for a piping hot and delicious single serve cake. It’s so easy, it’s dangerous. Here are 20 of my favorite mug cakes recipes. Enjoy!
