Unicorn Mug Cake

by Stephanie

Do you ever just want a piece of cake, but who wants to go to the trouble of making an entire cake? It takes too long and buying one can be pretty expensive.  That’s why microwave mug cakes are so perfect. Cake in about 3 minutes to hit that sweet spot.

How to make a funfetti mug cake.

This is a fun and fabulous Unicorn Mug Cake. You can be a grownup and still love unicorns and fancy unicorn cakes.

If you have a roommate who also loves cake and/or unicorns, you can even share this delicious treat by doubling the recipe and make it for 2 people easily.  Just split the batter into two separate mugs.  They will totally love you for it. 

Plus, this recipe doesn’t have any eggs in it, which is great for those of us with egg allergies or those of us who are out of eggs.  There is nothing suckier than finding a recipe you want to make and realizing you are out of half the ingredients. 

Ingredients for a Unicorn Mug Cake

Now I’ll tell you a secret about this cake.  If you need a vegan cake or just don’t have any milk, you can switch the milk out for water and have a dairy free and egg free treat. OR…if you aren’t vegan and want to indulge a little, you can switch that milk out for cream or half and half.  It’s really good that way, too!
