Our Mini Family: "What Would Beyonce Do?" Cake in a Mug

"What Would Beyonce Do?" Cake in a Mug

Disclosure: I received this mug, complimentary, for the purpose of this post. All opinions are 100% my own.

Good morning, lovelies! 

I hope you are all enjoying your Saturday and have some fabulous plans for the weekend! I for one will be working all day today and tomorrow, but I'm excited to share this post with you today (and also to party with you for our weekly Bewitchin Projects link up!)

Have you ever yearned for a coffee mug that both embraces your love for Beyoncé and inspires you to be the most fabulous person you can be? Well, now you can buy one thanks to Charm & Gumption! And because of this mug which has now filled a void in my life I had no idea was even there in the first place, I was inspired to create this cake-in-a-mug recipe:


My very own "What Would Beyoncé Do?" Mug Cake!

I know what you're thinking: "Cathy, I'm pretty sure Beyoncé didn't get to look the way she looks by eating cake out of a mug.." Well, I realize that--and when life gets tough and you've had a tiring day at work and don't have the resources/energy to bake an entire cake to put a little sunshine in your day, sometimes you just need a bite & to blast your favorite Beyoncé songs!
(which, let's be real: is all of them!)

    15 minutes7 minutes2 minutesCatharineMini
  • Ingredients

    • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    • 2 1/2 tablespoons sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • A pinch of salt
    • 1 tablespoon oil
    • 4 tablespoons whole milk
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • And 1 cup of your favorite, Beyoncé-approved frosting
  • Instructions

    1. 1. Drop your dry ingredients into your mug and blend.
    2. 2. Once blended, add your wet ingredients one by one slowly and stir with a fork as you add them.
    3. 3. Set aside your frosting room temperature to use after cake is done.
    4. 4. Let cake sit still with all ingredients (but frosting) for 1 minute to set in the mug you are going to bake it in.
    5. 5. Set your mug into the microwave.
    6. 6. Microwave on high for 5 minutes, but check in intervals to ensure it's baking evenly.
    7. 7. Use a toothpick to check if cake is done. Insert it into the center of the cake inside the mug, and if you pull out the toothpick with minimal residue on it then it's done ;-)
    8. 8. Take out of microwave and let sit for 2-3 minutes to cool if you're going to frost it (and so you don't burn your mouth because it *will* be boiling, lava hot).
    9. 9. Apply frosting as needed.
    10. 10. SURFBOARD! You're done. Enjoy. To the left, to the left--put your dirty dishes in the sink to the left. *and all other Beyoncé references I could be making*
