I’m not a fan of microwaves, but a mug cake in the microwave is definitely an exception.

Microwave mug cakes steam up instead of dry out.

The mug cakes end up super moist, small, and personal-sized for a quick treat!

Plus, mug cakes use so few ingredients that you can make so many variations and use up the little bit of crushed pecans or powdered sugar you have in your cabinet.

Seriously, mug cake recipes are GENIUS!

These mug cake recipes are our favorite picks and they’ll be yours too!
