Alright, for those who know me, you know that I cannot bake to save my life. I have been known to mix up salt and sugar, but we don’t talk about the pecan pie fiasco of 2010. Let’s be real, not all of us are expert bakers okay? I blame the recipes, not my baking skills. After burnt cakes, salty pies and lumpy cookies, I’ve found the perfect recipe. It’s fool proof and I’m sure, as my mother would say, “Allie” proof. I have been obsessed with mug cakes ever since I figured out that I could make an edible one. They are so easy and perfect for the person who loves homemade warm cake but can’t make their own. This short and simple recipe is my new obsession. Really, ask my roommate, I’m making them all the time. This vanilla mug cake with sprinkles is my all time favorite. Simple and delicious.
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- ¼ cup Granulated Sugar
- 6 tablespoons Flour
- A dash of salt
- Colorful sprinkles (my personal favorite)
Now lets make this thing!
Melt butter in a large mug (20-30 seconds in the microwave)
Freakin’ enjoy. You’re Welcome.
