The Return of the Mug Cakes

Ok, so I don't really have much to say about this, but I have to blog about it now.  Right now.  Because it was that amazing.  And it was a nice diversion from my afternoon of reading.

I happened to have a picture of cake up on my computer and NES immediately said "I want cake."  Oh, and I did too.

So, I made a mug cake . . . a red velvet mug cake!  I haven't made one in such a long time!  At least not from scratch.  Maybe since last school year?
And I even used the water trick to make sure my egg was still fresh!  I need to remember that one.

It was awesome.  I mean, of course, having cream cheese frosting on hand made the whole thing so much better.

Red Velvet Mug Cake
adapted from My Happy Place

4 tbsp. flour
4 1/2 tbsp. sugar
1/8 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tbsp. cocoa powder
3 tbsp. oil
3 tbsp. buttermilk
1 egg
1/2 tsp red food coloring

Mix all ingredients in a large mug using a fork or small whisk, trying to get the batter as smooth as possible.  Microwave for about 1 1/2 - 2 minutes.

Top with cream cheese frosting.

Perfect for sharing. :)


  1. MUG CAKE! I haven't made it since leaving Gordon, and I had even bought a mug specially for that purpose! I guess I need a microwave.
