Hello, everyone! I’m Rachel from HyperHypoMama and 2 Legit Media. I am so excited to share with you one of my all time favorite, ridiculously easy desserts. Ladies and gentlemen, I present the best ever Vanilla Chai Mug Cake, cream cheese frosting included.
I first began experimenting with mug cakes as an easy way to make desserts with my very impatient children. I just about gave up the whole idea of a mug cake after my first attempt. It was nothing like cake! However, my baby girl has a major sweet tooth and was not going to let me quit.
After lots of tweaking, I have finally found the perfect mixture of ingredients that will result in a fluffy mug cake. The best part is that the recipe is highly versatile. You can use the base ingredients to make almost any flavor of mug cake. I love making easy carrot cakes for my littles as a way of sneaking in some extra veggies. Albeit those veggies are probably canceled out by the fact that it is still a cake. But hey, there are also apples in it!
Anyhoo, while everyone else is going crazy for pumpkin spice now that fall has arrived, I am happy to stick with my trusty Chai. Check out the video below to witness the magic that is this Vanilla Chai Mug Cake. I’d love to hear how you made your mug cake your own. Let me know in the comments.
