Grinch Mug Cake

I have to admit, I sort of rock at making Grinch inspired treats for the holidays.

And I think I may have just topped them with this Grinch Mug Cake recipe.

Most of the recipes I make are made to feed a crowd but not this one. This one is meant to be enjoyed all by yourself (don’t feel guilty!).

If you can throw some simple ingredients into a mug and microwave it, you can make this recipe.

Can I use regular food coloring?

Yes. You can use regular food coloring. However, I find the gel food coloring gives a brighter, more true Grinch green color so I suggest using that. If you do use regular food coloring, use the neon green color.

How to Make a Grinch Mug Cake

In a 12-ounce microwave safe mug, add Milk, Oil, Flour, Sugar, Baking Powder, Vanilla, and Food Coloring.

Stir well to combine, and place in Microwave for 1 minute. 

Remove Mug from Microwave, and if the top is a little jiggly, or looks really shiny, or halfway runny, place the Mug back in the Microwave for 10 seconds. 

Remove from Microwave, and let stand for 2 minutes to cool slightly. 

Then top with Whipped Cream and Red Grinch Hearts.
