Came back from Hawaii yesterday morning. If it were up to me, I would never leave that island. Maybe there were other people feeling the same way, because my flight back to Vancouver was on the most empty airplane that I have ever been on… ever. There were people literally sprawled out horizontally on 3 chairs sleeping.
So I’m back to the cold and the rain. How can I possibly lift my spirits?
Another mug cake? I think yes!
Ever since I made vanilla bean paste I have been searching for recipes that call for it. Because when I don’t have it in my house, the recipes are everywhere. When I finally do, I can’t find any recipe that calls for it.
But when I saw this recipe from Table for Two, I knew I needed to make it and satisfy my new found mug cake obsession.
This Vanilla Bean Mug Cake is made with no egg. Such a quick and easy personal dessert recipe that is ready in under 5 minutes.
- 6 Tbsp all-purpose flour
- 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 6 Tbsp milk
- 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
- 1/2 Tbsp pure vanilla extract
- 2 Tbsp butter, melted
In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
Whisk together the milk, vanilla bean paste and vanilla extract.
Mix in the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and mix until fully combined.
Pour into a mug, and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes, and remove to see if it’s done. If not, continue to microwave in thirty second intervals.
