The 2015 Twelve Posts of Christmas #2

Mrs. BA is thinking about a Holiday Open House around New Years.  I'm on board with this plan.  Maybe we can make a boatload of mug cakes, particularly this one (from FiveHeartHome). (via BuzzFeed)

Snickerdoodle Mug Cake 
Yield: 1 mug cake

  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar 
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder 
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 
  • 1/4 cup milk, at room temperature 
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter, melted and cooled 
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
 For layering/topping: 
  • 1 tablespoon sugar 
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon until thoroughly, completely combined, with no streaks of any ingredients remaining. Blend in milk, butter, and vanilla until batter is smooth. Into a 14-ounce (or larger) microwave-safe mug with straight sides, scoop a big spoonful of batter, then sprinkle with a spoonful of cinnamon sugar. Alternate layers, ending with cinnamon sugar. 
  2. Microwave on high for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, or until cake is done to your liking. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes before serving.
