Soul Sister Birthday Lunch!

We took Marjorie out for some birthday sushi and shopping this week!

Mug cakes and sharpie coffee cups are all the rage over Pinterest right now, so it inspired my gift:

"There Might Be Cake In Here" Mug:

I taped off my lines and wrote the message in an oil-based fine tipped paint pen then placed in a cold oven, turned the heat up to 350 and baked for 20 minutes.

I filled bags with the ingredients for Snickerdoodle Mug Cake:

  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup milk, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 
  • For layering/topping:
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon until thoroughly combined. Blend in milk, butter, and vanilla until batter is smooth. Into a microwave-safe mug with straight sides, scoop a big spoonful of batter, then sprinkle with a spoonful of cinnamon sugar. Alternate layers, ending with cinnamon sugar.
  2. Microwave on high for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, or until cake is done to your liking. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes before serving.

Bag up the dry ingredients into 2 separate bags (flour mixture in one and cinnamon sugar in another) and tuck into your "This Might Be Cake" Mug and gift it to your nearest and dearest cake lover.
