If you want to know how to make a vanilla mug cake, these 28 easy vanilla mug cake recipes have you covered. Whether you want mug cake with cake mix, made from scratch, or a Keto vanilla mug cake that’s diet friendly, you can find it here. Mug cakes are so easy to make and perfect for when you’re craving cake, but don’t want anything to go to waste. You don’t even need an oven; just throw it in the microwave and enjoy deliciously moist cake for one in minutes.
Make It Your Own: There’s a whole world of toppings you can easily put onto any vanilla mug cake recipe, even if it’s not in the directions, so don’t be afraid to add something new. This makes making mug cakes a fun activity for the kids (or adults) as they pick their own special ingredients. Try chocolate chips, sprinkles or even marshmallows on top!
Mug Size: Make sure the mug you use to microwave your mug cake mix is big enough to hold the cake, if not you could end up with overflow in the microwave that you’ll have to clean up. If you’re unsure of which mug to use, go with the biggest one. This won’t effect the cake and ensures there will be no overflow.
Microwave Safety: Always double check that your mug of choice is microwave safe. You could end up losing a favorite mug to the heat if you don’t.
Cook Time: Depending on the wattage of your microwave, cooking times may vary.If you feel your microwave is too strong, try a little less cooking time to test it out first. If your cake is underdone (you can use a toothpick to test it) try putting it back in for small intervals of time until the toothpick is clean.
