Yellow Cake in a Mug!

Yesterday was my birthday, and I needed to find an easy, vegan cake recipe for Nathan to make for me. After hours of searching recipe blogs and such, I stumbled across this recipe for cake in a mug. Once I made some changes to remove the egg and milk, it was perfect.

For young children (and apparently husbands, too) it is extremely exciting to eat your cake out of a mug! There were smiles all around, and the birthday mom was happy :-D

Yellow Cake in a Mug

6 T flour (you can use whole wheat, all-purpose, or gluten-free)
4 T sugar/sucanat
1/8 tsp baking powder
egg replacer to equal one egg (I use Ener-G brand)
3 T water
3 T oil
dash of vanilla

Mix the egg replacer and set aside while you combine the rest of the ingredients. Add dry ingredients to the mug and mix well. Stir in wet ingredients. Microwave for 3 minutes. The cake should rise. You can frost it in the mug, or tip it out onto a plate and then frost it. We ate ours in the mug!

Simple Vegan Frosting

1 cup confectioner's sugar
1-3 tsp water
dash of vanilla

Mix water and vanilla into sugar, starting with 1 tsp and adding additional water as needed to reach your desired consistency.
