Carrot Cake Mug Cake – A perfect one-serving dessert that tastes just like a carrot cake! It is a delicious treat that is sure to be a new favorite!
It’s time for another mug cake! Currently, this is the fourth I’ve made but only the second I’ve actually posted. Since this was more of a spring flavor, I pushed this one ahead of the other two! This was by far the best carrot cake I’ve had and it was a SO easy! I will definitely be making this again later this week as I have a really large bag of carrots and no other plans for them currently.
As for toppings, I made a homemade whipped cream to go on top along with a bit of shredded carrots and chopped pecans. They all worked so well with the mug cake, I highly suggest! I considered making a bit of butter cream frosting for the top but decided whipped cream would be a bit easier since I didn’t have any cream cheese or butter softened.
I’ve been a bit addicted to making mug cakes for lunch, it’s been happening at least 1-2 days a week for about a month. They are so easy to make and a lot more exciting then a boring grilled cheese sandwich or any of my normal options, I don’t usually get super creative when it comes to lunch so these have been a welcome change!
