This easy cinnamon roll microwave mug cake is the perfect treat when you’re craving a little something sweet!

Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup flour, all purpose, whole wheat, whole wheat pastry or spelt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp. unsweetened vanilla almond milk or other milk + 1-2 tablespoons more, as needed
  • 1 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. coconut oil
  • 1 Tbsp. brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Spray a microwavable mug with cooking spray and then mix together flour (or pancake mix), baking powder, milk, maple syrup, vanilla and coconut oil inside. Add 1-2 tablespoons more milk, if needed for desired consistency. You want the batter to stay thick, but not dry.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together brown sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the top of the mixture in mug. Use the tip of a knife to swirl cinnamon mix into the top of the batter.
  3. Microwave on high for about 1 minute and 25 seconds. Take out of the microwave and if desired transfer muffin to a plate. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

I usually use spelt flour to make my mug cakes. Instead of flour, pancake mix also works. Try Bisquick or Kodiak Cakes Flapjack mix (my personal favorite). If using pancake mix, leave out the baking powder.

I’ve also enjoyed this mug cake without the brown sugar topping with a little jam. Delicious either way!
