Microwave Mug Cakes

Ingredients

  1. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    1 large egg
    2 tablespoons milk
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/4 cup granulated sugar
    6 tablespoons self-rising flour
    A pinch of salt
    Whipped cream, frosting, and/or sprinkles, for topping (optional)

Directions

  1. Heat the butter in a small microwave-safe mixing bowl in 10- to 20-second increments, until melted.
  2. Add the egg and beat with a fork until smooth.
  3. Mix in the milk, vanilla, and sugar.
  4. Add the flour and salt, and whisk until smooth.
  5. Divide the batter between two mugs.
  6. Microwave each mug separately, for 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 minutes, or until the cake has risen and is firm and springy to the touch. (It will not brown.)
  7. If you're topping it with whipped cream or frosting, allow it to cool to room temperature. Then frost and decorate with sprinkles (if using).
