French Toast Mug Cake...

Last week was a hectic one for me... Come Friday at 5:00 p.m., it was nap time. I was just too tired to do anything other than sleep.... not even eat dinner.

So after I woke up from my 'nap' at midnight, I was a bit hungry... it didn't seem right to make a full meal at 12:00 A.M., so I simply decided to make a little two minute treat while I cuddled up and watched a movie on the couch {and I must be candid with you, the movie I ended up watching was Muppets in Space... I'm not even ashamed of it}.

I have made mug brownies and even a mug peanut butter cake before... but I decided to take pretty much every recipe I have seen for quick microwave sweets, and combine them into this little concoction. Now, if you're looking for gourmet texture and flavor, this is not where you will find it. If you're looking for something quick and delicious considering you made it in the microwave in two minutes, then definitely give this recipe a try!

French Toast Mug Cake...

  • 3 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1 small egg
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp orange juice
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • powdered sugar {for dusting}


  • In a small bowl, whisk a small egg. Add the remaining ingredients to the whisked egg and mix well. 
  • Pour your mixture into a large mug {I used a small mason jar}. Make sure the batter does not rise past the halfway point of the mug, otherwise it will rise too high and spill over the sides of the mug.
  • Place the mug in the microwave and cook on high for about two minutes. Make sure to watch your mug, as the power of your microwave might be stronger than others.
  • Remove from microwave, dust with powdered sugar and enjoy!

Oooh yum! I've never made any mug sweets before. Only scrambled eggs but that's a different story. I'm really in the mood to bake, but I'm trying to stay strong! If I bake it, I will eat it.
