Hi Bold Bakers!

If there ever was a reason to celebrate, this is it! We reached another HUGE milestone on Bigger Bolder Baking and surpassed 2 million subscribers on YouTube.

To mark this joyous event in true Big and Bold fashion I made this Celebration Mug Cake. It might be the most over the top, colorful, not to mention festive, Mug Cake yet (not counting my NEW Best-Ever Chocolate Mug Cake). And if the Mug Cake recipe wasn’t enough, I crafted a sign covered in sprinkles just so we are all clear that this is a party in a mug. Get this recipe below! And of course, you can get 100 more of my Mug Cake & Mug Meals recipes on my site.

In Ireland we are famous for saying “Thanks a million,” or in Irish, “Go raibh míle maith agaibh.” I can’t say this enough to each and every one of you for building such an amazing community of Bold Bakers! This milestone is just the beginning for us.

Thanks again,

Gemma, Kevin, and Waffles

I made this recipe with whole wheat flour (all I had), honey, and coconut oil and it turned out so tasty, fluffy, and moist! Now I can have a dessert and get some fiber and healthy fats, too! Will be making again! Thanks, Gemma <3

Tastes good! Would use butter instead if oil though.

I tried it and noooooooope it failed I didn’t know how long to cook because my microwave is less powerful, I ended up burning my favorite mug

I had faith 🙁

Just made this and halved the sugar because I don’t like my cakes too sweet – it was perfection! Fluffy and so satisfying! For those with a 700 watt microwave like me, I microwaved it for about 2 minutes :). Thanks Gemma!

This recipe is delicious. Tweaked it a bit. I used cake flour instead of all purpose. I also used fat free milk and was still delicious. Used butter instead of oil. Add a pinch of salt and used 1 teaspoon of vanilla instead. Served with tiramisu cream. I would recommend cooking this longer at least closer to 2 mins if you are trying all these tweaks. Thanks for the recipe ❤️

Hello Gemma,
I am so pleased to have discovered (by chance) you on-line presence. I love your “tutorials” and most of all I am happy that you give your measurements in metric/imperial, as an Irish lady, the cup measurements are fairly vague to me.
It’s wonderful to hear your lovely Irish accent, never loose it.
Many,many thanks,
Mary

Did this with my 3 year old son who has an egg allergy! Was soooo quick/ east and more than anything delicious ! Cooked for 90 seconds in microwave and turned out perfect! We took it out of the mug, cut in half to fill with whipped cream and strawberries then assembled and topped with more! YUMMM.

I made this “cake” and the batter was very doughy so I added more milk and it was more normal looking , unfortunately the cake was very bland even with madagascar vanilla which is very strong in flavour normally.
