Carrot Cake in a Mug


I’m not much of a cake person. For birthdays my kids LOVE giant cookie cakes or skillet brownies. I will on occasion make cupcakes at Stella’s request, but even that doesn’t happen very often.

My cake pans pretty much just collect dust in the back of my cupboards.

But, Easter is nearly here, and in case you have not noticed, carrot cake is everywhere. Carrot cake is one cake that I absolutely LOVE.  Unfortunately, it’s the one cake my family will not eat.

At all.

If I make a carrot cake, I’d have to eat the whole thing by myself. Which may not be a bad thing except that the weather is changing, and I can no longer hide under my comfy sweater. At least not without sweating profusely. 

So what’s a girl to do when she really wants carrot cake?

Make it single serving, and healthier, that’s what, and it’s ready in less than 5 minutes, so I can have it whenever I want.
