5-Minute Coffee Cake in a Mug! Fluffy, moist vanilla cake, rippled with cinnamon swirl and topped with crunchy cinnamon topping!
I’m convinced there is nothing more magical than a mug cake. I mean, 5 minutes, a few ingredients, and then you have… cake?! All for yourself?! It is truly one of my favourite kitchen hacks for those days when you want a sweet treat but don’t have a lot of time. Also great if you don’t want an entire giant coffee cake sitting around you kitchen that you’ll snack on all day instead of eating real meals (guilty)!
This recipe couldn’t be easier, yet still has all the best parts of coffee cake: that cinnamon ripple in the middle, and the crunchy top! I just love this recipe so much and I hope you do too.
Ps: mug cakes are best made and eaten right away, so don’t plan to let this sit on your counter for too long before you enjoy it, because they tend to dry out quickly!
Fluffy, moist vanilla cake, rippled with cinnamon swirl and topped with crunchy cinnamon topping!
3 tbsp vegan butter, melted
3 tbsp non-dairy milk
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
5 tbsp flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp sugar + 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
Set aside 1 tsp of melted butter.
Combine the rest of the melted butter, milk, sugar and vanilla and stir until sugar is dissolved.
In a small bowl, stir together the flour and baking powder. Add the wet mixture and stir until smooth.
Pour half of the mixture into your mug. Sprinkle with half of the cinnamon sugar mixture. Add the other half of the batter and smooth on top. Add the rest of the cinnamon sugar, then drizzle with the 1 tsp of melted butter.
Microwave on high for approx 1 minute 20 seconds, until slightly puffed up in the center (it shouldn’t look wet on top, it should be slightly springy to the touch.
Remove and let cool a few minutes before eating. Enjoy!
