Two exciting things to share with you today! First things first, Almond Breeze has Almondmilk Cashewmilk.

My second piece of delicious news- I created a damn good Gingerbread Microwave Mug Cake, just in time for cozy evenings snuggled in front of the Christmas tree!

Gingerbread Microwave Mug Cake- cakey, soft, full of comforting flavours, and the only things standing between you and this vegan cake are 8 ingredients and 5 minutes of your time.
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup flour all purpose, whole wheat, whole wheat pastry or spelt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 3 tablespoon Almond Breeze Almondmilk Cashewmilk Blend + 1 tablespoon more as needed
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar coconut sugar or 1/2 tablespoon Splenda brown sugar blend work great
  • ¼ tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • dash of ginger
Instructions
  1. Spray a microwavable mug with cooking spray and then mix together flour (or pancake mix), baking powder, ginger, milk, molasses and coconut oil inside. Add 1 tablespoon 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, cinnamon and a few dashes of ginger and sprinkle over the top of the mixture in mug. Use the tip of a sharp knife to swirl cinnamon mix into the top of the batter.
  3. Microwave on high for about 1 minute and 5 seconds. Take out of the microwave and if desired transfer muffin to a plate. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

I usually use whole wheat or 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.
