Going on vacation this Summer with no access to an oven? That’s the pickle I was in last week. We had delicious dinners of blintzes, vegetarian chili, Mac & Cheese, peanut butter pancakes…but without an oven, dessert was a little trickier! Enter these sweet and fantastic cinnamon roll filled mugs…HEAVEN. I found a recipe online from Cooking Classy, tweaked it a bit, and created this to die for dessert. I burnt the roof of my mouth because I scarfed it down so..yeah..it’s good. The recipe is good for 2 mugs worth, so feel free to double, triple, quadruple ..you get the idea!
Cinnamon Roll in a Mug:
4 tablespoons apple sauce
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
5 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
dash of salt
Cream Cheese Icing:
2 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
4 tablespoons powdered sugar
2 teaspoons milk
- Prepare cream cheese icing; set aside.
- Combine all ingredients listed above ( except for the cream cheese icing), in a small bowl, whisking with a fork until smooth.
- Distribute batter equally into mugs, and microwave on high for 1 minutes. Microwave an additional 10 seconds if you think it is not fully cooked.
For the Cream Cheese Icing – Combine all ingredients, whisk with a fork and when the mugs come out of the microwave, drizzle or pipe icing in a swirl or spoon it on top.
TIP*– An easy recipe for buttermilk.
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 cup milk
Stir to combine and let sit for 5 minutes.
