Mother's Day Mug Cake

This is a really cool recipe that I got while living in Brazil. Made a few adjustments to work with the American ingredients. Very easy to make and it came out very yummy!
 My daughter decorated a mug from the Dollar Store with permanent markers.
Kids will have fun decorating the mug and they can make this recipe right before breakfast and surprise Mom on her Special Day!
Note: since is done in the microwave, as soon it cools off, the cake will get hard. To avoid that, make sure you wrap your mug with plastic wrap to maintain moisture.

Within 3 minutes your mini cake is done!
My kids had fun watching it rise in the microwave!
 We got the seal of approval!


  1. This is such a good idea! I have made the cake in a mug before, but I never thought about making it a gift. Brilliant!
