Mugvember with the Library – Throughout November
This month we’re getting cozy with some fun mug recipes! Recipes will be posted every week in November on our social media (so follow the library on Facebook and Instagram!) and will be available in the library, too.
Get a free, limited-edition Gibsonville Mural mug to use when you donate to our Community Pantry. We’d love to see your mug creations, so make sure to tag us @gibsonvillelibrary when you post pictures!
Recipe for November 6th: Snickerdoodle Mug Cake
Soooo… we kind of forgot to take a picture BEFORE we ate the mug cake, guys. But we’ll do better on the next one – promise!! Just pretend that ours looked as pretty as the images at FiveHeartHome.com, which is where we found the original recipe. After some GPL kitchen testing, here is our adapted version:
Adapted from recipe by FiveHeartHome.com after being tested in the GPL kitchen.
¼ cup + 2 TBSP all-purpose flour
2 TBSP sugar
¼ tsp baking powder
½ tsp cinnamon
¼ cup milk
2 TBSP salted butter
½ tsp vanilla extract
To mix in:
1 TBSP sugar
1 pinch cinnamon
1 mug (14oz or bigger)
1 large measuring cup or small mixing bowl
Measuring cups and spoons
A fork for mixing ingredients
1. Put the butter in your mug and microwave until melted (start with 30 seconds or so then check it)
2. Add milk and vanilla to the melted butter in your mug and set aside.
3. Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and cinnamon together in mixing bowl or large measuring cup*
4. Pour the wet ingredients from your mug into the mixing bowl and blend it all together until smooth.
5. Pour the cake batter into your mug and top it with 1 TBSP sugar plus a pinch of cinnamon.
6. Use your fork to swirl the sugar-cinnamon combo into the batter.
7. Microwave your mug of batter for 1 minute, then check on it.**
8. Give your cake a few minutes to cool after you take it out of microwave – it comes out HOT!
9. Enjoy your sweet, cinnamony treat!
* We used a 24 oz measuring cup to mix things in because the pour spout made it easier to transfer the cake batter back into the mug.
** We tested this recipe in a 1000W microwave, and it took about 1½ minutes to cook completely. Yours might be different.
