Single Serving Blueberry Mug Cake
This is the first time I’ve ever made a mug cake. I couldn’t believe how fast, easy and delicious this was! The batter literally takes minutes to put together, the cook time in the microwave is 60 -90 minutes. Check after 60 minutes though, it would be very easy to overcook.
Cinnamon and nutmeg give the cake that warm spice flavor we love so much. Brown sugar sweetens the cake and gives it a rich brown color and pairs well with the spices. The cake texture is soft, moist and studded with fresh blueberries. The glaze made of powdered sugar and water is just enough to drizzle and makes a nice topping.
How many times have you wished you had something sweet but didn’t want to make a whole cake? This is perfect for those occasions. Kick this up a notch by adding a scoop of ice cream to the warm cake (my husband’s suggestion as he was gobbling his up) for a decadent little treat for just the two of you. Just think about how nice it’ll be to have a sweet treat in the summer without turning the oven on! Single Serving Blueberry Mug Cake, this one’s a keeper Kids!
