This healthy raspberry mug cake for one is a quick and easy way to satisfy those sweet cravings. It’s made with pantry staples and ready in 40 seconds!
Want a warm dessert without having to bake a whole cake or tray of muffins?
As much as I love my sea salt dark chocolate and mini PB cups from Trader Joe’s, there are nights when I want something warm, gooey, and not chocolate.
This raspberry mug cake for one is my new go-to. Not only is it super quick to whip up – less than 1 minute! – but it’s also just the right amount of sweet.
I love mug cakes.
But when I look for recipes online, many of them are much higher in calories and fat than I’d like for an everyday dessert.
But when I’d go to try “skinny” versions, they went too far in the other direction by using artificial sweeteners, which made them not taste quite as great.
This healthy raspberry mug cake for one is the perfect balance of healthier yet satisfying:
Unlike my chocolate mug cake, which is super gooey, this healthy vanilla mug cake recipe is a bit denser.
Rather than tasting like a cupcake, it has a slightly denser texture that’s more similar to a muffin or pound cake.
I personally love it as I find it to be more filling and satisfying, but if you’re looking for more of a cupcake-consistency then I’d give this recipe by Just So Tasty a try.
To make this healthier raspberry vanilla mug cake, you’ll need just a handful of pantry staples:
Making a mug cake is as simple as an Easy Bake Oven recipe. Which essentially means that if your kid-self could do that, then your current adult self can definitely make this recipe.
All you have to do is:
My main tip is to use a butter knife for stirring – trust me, it’ll blend everything together mug better!.
Also, if you want your mug cake on the gooier side, start with 35 seconds and increase by 10 seconds at a time after that. I found 50 seconds to be the sweet-spot for my microwave.
