Microwave Cinnamon Roll Mug Cake

Ingredients

1/4
cup Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ spice cake mix
1/4
cup applesauce
1
teaspoon cinnamon
3
tablespoons Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy cream cheese frosting

Directions

  • 1 In a small bowl, stir together cake mix and applesauce. Fold the cinnamon in just slightly, so ribbons of it are swirled into the batter.
  • 2 Spoon half of the batter in the bottom of a mug sprayed with nonstick baking spray.
  • 3 Spoon 1 1/2 tablespoons of cream cheese frosting on top of the batter.
  • 4 Top with the remaining batter.
  • 5 Microwave for 1-1/2 to 3 minutes. The cake is done when the top springs back when touched lightly in the center.
  • 6 Place the remaining icing in a ziptop baggie. Snip a small corner from the edge of the baggie, and pipe the icing in a swirl around the top of the cake. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Step By Step  

A quick little cake you bake up in the microwave that feeds your cinnamon-roll craving.

As prepared by Cheeky Kitchen,

You need that cinnamon roll flava, stat, so whatcha gonna do? Make these!

Got a wicked craving that ya need to curb quick? Yeah, we get it. Which is why we're cooking up cinnamon bun mug cakes…in the microwave. Three minutes and you'll have a hot mug of love, oozing with cream cheese icing and swirled with oodles of cinnamon.

So, I came across Cooking Classy's superfab Cinnamon Roll Mug Cake and found it so brilly, I decided to make one of my own.

I went ahead and added a few twists to the original. It's easier than ever with ready-to-go Betty Crocker spice cake mix. And maybe we added a middle layer of icing. Because what every cinnamon roll needs is a second layer of frosting, ya dig?

 

Microwave Cinnamon Roll Mug Cake

Start by pulling a quarter-cup of mix out of a box of Betty Crocker Spice Cake. This is such a fun recipe because you can make one serving at a time, then save all the fixings for later, and make another one (or two! or three!) whenever you choose.

Whisk a 1/4 cup of applesauce into the cake mix.

Then, spoon half the batter on the bottom of your prepped mug. Top with a spoonful of Betty Crocker Cream Cheese frosting.

Then, top it with the rest of the batter. Use a knife or the back edge of a spoon to gently smooth the top of the batter into a nice, flat top. Make sure all the frosting is covered with the second bit of batter, then zap it all in microwave for 2 minutes (or maybe a little longer, depending on your microwave). You'll know it's done when the cake rises toward the top of the mug, and the center springs back when touched lightly.

Now ice your cake with a bit of Betty Crocker Cream Cheese frosting. Just pipe it right out the edge of a snipped zip-top bag.
