This healthier vanilla mug cake takes less than 5 minutes from start to finish and is so fluffy and delicious! It only has a handful of basic ingredients and can easily be adapted to be completely gluten, dairy, & refined sugar free too!
My late night sweet cravings are OUT OF CONTROL! It never fails, I’ll be watching tv with the family in the evening and once 9 or 10 o’clock rolls around, I want dessert, like now! I’ve even been known to begin baking close to midnight because I just had to have some chocolate chip cookies! 🙈
Well, thank goodness for mug cakes, because these babies only take a few minutes to throw together and are the perfect quick treat to satisfy your sweet cravings. Best of all, this delicious dessert doesn’t require the use of a mixer, cake pans, or oven either. Just a mug, microwave, and 5 minutes of your time. Can a homemade, from-scratch dessert get better than that?
You better believe I’ve already created a chocolate version, so for all my vanilla people, this one’s for you!
Now, you could make this vanilla cake and just enjoy it as is, but honestly that’s kind of boring. To me, vanilla is like a blank canvas in which to add other good stuff, amiright?
I included the basic vanilla cake recipe along with three flavor variations—vanilla cake with chocolate frosting, strawberry shortcake, and funfetti!
I love vanilla cake with strawberries, but I’m also a sucker for a good vanilla cake with chocolate frosting, so I had to include those variations. The kids love all things fun and colorful so they enjoyed their funfetti version made with naturally dyed sprinkles! What’s your favorite vanilla cake variation?
