Cinnamon Mug Cake


Do you ever just go to sleep with every intention in the world of going to your 8am Psych lecture but then your husband accidentally sets alarms for 5:00am AND 5:30am, waking you up both times; when you finally fall asleep again, your husband has a sleep spasm and accidentally flails his arm into your face to jolt you awake again; you decide to just wake up a little later and skip a shower to get to school on time; and you wake up for a last time to your dog literally vomiting on you (he ate too much too quickly -_-), THEN PEEING ON YOU?

Because I just had that morning. It sounds like a goddamn movie right? A goddamn horror movie.

So needless to say, I took a shower, and while my Professor is explaining sensory perception to his class, I’m here in bed, all showered and shamelessly taking some time to recuperate and prepare for rest of the day. Which is especially exciting because I have a recipe for you that I didn’t think I’d be able to get out here until at least tomorrow. Thanks world?

The recipe of the day is a delicious cinnamon mug cake, microwaveable 5-minute dessert goodness. I would indulge in one right now but I don’t want to risk the tummy ache that happens sometimes when I have sugary foods in the morning. I am teetering on the edge of sanity and I can’t risk being thrown off by physical imbalances right now.



After you cook the mug cake, you can drizzle (or just pour it all) some cashew icing on top with some cinnamon for some extra creamy flavorful yumminess, like so:



If you try this nifty, quick little dessert, please do let me know! I love to hear from you and I especially love to know ways that you modified the recipe or any improvements you think I could try with it. Have a good day, friends. I will take a few meditative minutes to help myself have a good one as well.



OH YEAH, also! I used one of my hand painted cups for this recipe to microwave test it, and it seems great! Catch all of my cute hand painted cups over on my Etsy shop, and look out because I’m putting up new stuff all the time!



Love and peace and happiness and joy,
