Snickerdoodle Mug Cake


Snickerdoodle Mug Cake

We love the name "snickerdoodle," but if you want to call these cinnamon mug cakes, it's fine by us.

Snickerdoodles are a “first cookie love” for a lot of us. The soft, fluffy sugar cookie texture and warm cinnamon flavor are a heavenly combination. It turns out that those traits also make for a pretty darn good snickerdoodle mug cake. This recipe has everything you love about snickerdoodle cookies, but you can make it in your microwave in about five minutes. We’re almost sorry for making it so easy to cook this snickerdoodle mug cake, but not quite. It’s actually pretty fun to make a little cinnamon cake whenever you want.

From the Chef: Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite types of cookies--especially in the fall when cinnamon is at the peak of its popularity. I usually like to add a bit of whipped cream and extra cinnamon on top to really wrap up the flavor.
