Hi Bold Bakers!
Ok, time for some trivia, what is the most iconic flavor when it come to cake…? I bet all of you can agree it’s good old Funfetti! Just saying the word makes me feel all kinds of warm and fuzzy. From Birthday parties to family get togethers no festive celebration is complete without a bit of color, sprinkles, sweetness and vanilla cake. And that’s why Funfetti really does the trick. It’s all that baked into one tender spongy cake, topped with bright or pastel frosting and enjoyed by all. But sometimes you want a single-serving version or a little cake fast, so that’s where my 1 Minute Microwave Funfetti Mug Cake comes in.
Whether you’re a kid or an adult you probably love Funfetti Cake. The thing is you usually don’t get to enjoy this treat any given day. Well now you can with my 1 Minute Microwave Funfetti Mug Cake. Just like you, I love this fun flavor but don’t exactly want to make a whole cake just to have one slice. That’s why I created this single-serving gem of a mug cake.
This Funfetti Mug Cake is made super moist and tender from the milk and butter and perfectly flavored with sprinkles and vanilla to really deliver on the “fun.” I think this recipe is perfect for any dorm room celebration or after school treat. Let me remind you, birthday cake tastes just as good on days that aren’t your Birthday. Every day is one to celebrate. If you have a minute to spare and a few basic ingredients this special treat is all yours. Enjoy!
