How To Make sprinkle birthday cake mug cake

  • Flour, sugar, and baking powder in a mug.
    Mix the flour, sugar, and baking powder inside a 12 oz mug.
  • Whisking together milk, melted butter, and vanilla.
    Add the milk, melted butter, and vanilla. Mix with a small whisk or fork until just combined.
  • Sprinkles added to the mug.
    Add 1 tsp of sprinkles and give it a quick swirl (don’t over stir or it will discolor the batter).
  • Sprinkle Birthday Cake Mug Cake in the microwave.
    Place in the microwave. Cook for about 90 seconds. Time may vary depending on the strength of your microwave. (Carefully remove the mug, it’s hot!)
  • Birthday Cake Mug Cake out of the microwave.
    The cake will puff up while cooking. When removed from the microwave, it will settle down to about an inch from the rim.
  • Vanilla frosting and sprinkles added to the top of the cake.
    Serve hot or cool. For decoration, top with 1 Tbsp of store-bought vanilla frosting and a pinch of sprinkles.
