Lazy Saturday Morning 3 minute treat

2 Minute Cinnamon Cake in a Mug

2 Minute Cinnamon Cake in a Mug

It is rare that I have a lazy Saturday morning.  Well this morning it is cold and just nasty outside.  Most mornings like this I like to bake and warm up the house but this morning I am just not feeling it… No I promise I am not sick.  Just enjoying my morning coffee and reading the paper.  But also want something good and warm that would make me feel just a little bit more cozy.  Yet again I am not really feeling the creative backing thing.  Plus I have a hair appointment to get dressed for  in a little bit.  So as I was going through my recipes, I found one I use to do many many moons ago that was simple and comforting I wanted to share.

Cinnamon Cake/Bread in a Coffee Cup/Mug

First find a coffee cup/mug you like does not have to be very big it can be a regular size coffee cup. Just make sure it is microwave safe!  Spray it with your favorite cooking spray. Now I like the make the icing first. You don’t really need icing on this but I have a little sweet tooth!


  • 2/3 cup of powered sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbs milk
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Mix icing ingredients above in small bowl and set aside. (If it is to thick you can add just a tiny bit of milk at a time to get it to the consistency to drizzle)

Now in the Coffee cup/mug mix the following:

  • 2 tbs all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon **(see substitutions below)
  • pinch or dash of salt (not much really just a pinch)
  • 1 1/2 tbs of  flavored syrup – I like maple or cinnamon – You can even use Pancake Syrup)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbs of whole milk – You can use reduced fat milk or Almond
  • 1 tbs of melted butter – Sorry I always use real butter!
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

(Make sure you mix it as well as you can with a fork).  Place in Microwave for 2 minutes.  Drizzle with icing.  Enjoy!!!

Note:  Always be careful when removing items from microwave they may be hot.

** Substitutions for Cinnamon – I have used Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix, Apple Pie Spice Mix.  It is up to you and your taste.  Be creative!
