This Carrot Cake in a Mug Can Be Made in a Blink

There’s nothing we love more than a recipe that takes less than 10 minutes to create. We’re even happier when it’s delicious! This carrot cake in a mug is the best of both worlds. Top it off with cream cheese frosting for a more classic take, or just a dollop of whipped cream if you can’t wait to dive in.


  • 1½ tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons finely shredded carrot


  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • ¼ cup confectioners’ sugar


  1. Combine the melted butter, brown sugar, vanilla, milk, flour, baking powder, and cinnamon in a mug. Stir or whisk the ingredients until smooth. Fold in the shredded carrots.
  2. Microwave the mug cake for one to one-and-a-half minutes. Begin checking at 1 minute. The cake should look set but not overcooked and dry.
  3. Allow the cake to cool before topping with whipped cream, cream cheese glaze, or powdered sugar.
