This Two-Minute Microwave Mug Cake Is The Ultimate Lazy Dessert

It's not that you CAN'T bake — it's that you don't WANT to.

THE SITUATION: You're dreaming of cake. You NEED cake. Because cake is fantastic.

THE PROBLEM: Baking a cake takes *F*O*R*E*V*E*R.

Two-Minute Cookie Butter Mug Cake

Makes 1 serving


2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

2 tablespoons cookie butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 large egg

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

4 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Pinch of salt

1/4 teaspoon baking powder


Combine all ingredients in a mug that holds at least 12 ounces (most mugs do). Stir together with a fork to form a thick, lumpy batter. Microwave on high until puffed and cooked through, about 90 seconds.

Eat immediately. (Probably with more cookie butter on top.)
