Vanilla Mug Cake

Mug cakes are really the best dessert ever.  I love how they are single serving desserts that take just minutes to make.  Over the past year and a half, I have created all types of easy mug cake recipes from my ever popular Carrot Cake Mug Cake to the fan favorite Peanut Butter Cookie Mug Cake! This vanilla mug cake recipe is actually based off of my very first mug cake recipe, the Snickerdoodle Mug Cake! I tossed out the cinnamon and added some vanilla bean paste and this vanilla cake in a mug turned out absolutely perfect! If you need an easy dessert to make tonight or you just have a craving for a vanilla cake, then this is the perfect dessert to make!

Tips on vanilla mug cake recipe

  • Don’t have any vanilla bean paste on hand? Sub in vanilla extract!
  • Adding vanilla bean ice cream and whipped cream on top is extra delicious and indulgent!

    I just love vanilla and that cake looks so soft and moist. I’d be topping mine with a little ice cream too!

    Mmm, this is the perfect amount of dessert for me. I rarely make cakes unless it’s for a special occasion and I have people to share it with. This I can eat all on my own and not worry about the leftovers!

    Definitely giving this a try, love the single-serving option! With only two of us here in the house a full cake goes to waste…. I mean waist! 😀
