Fluffy cakey dessert baked in 1 minute? YES, ME. HERE! I’m here for it.
Who says funfetti cake can only happen on birthdays? In my opinion, sprinkles just bring the smiles and lately, we could all use more smiles.
This microwave mug cake has a delicious vanilla base and fun colorful sprinkles mixed in.
Aside from the happy bursts of color, it’s so fluffy and moist and has the best cakey texture I know you’re going to love.
I’m not one to brag but my son took one bite and enthusiastically told me, “Five stars… I give this five stars.” Oh, thanks kid, let me sear that compliment into my brain to fuel me through all those dinners you hate.
