Thanks for this quick sweet treat! There are dozens of mug cake recipes on Pinterest, but yours came recommended by a friend. I think my microwave wattage might be a little higher, because my cake came out slightly tough. I think next time I would shorten my bake time by 10-15 seconds. And I scaled back on the milk in the frosting, for a thicker frosting. For those not familiar with making frosting from scratch, it is best to mix the butter and sugar first, and add the milk and vanilla last -- easier to mix together and comes out creamier. This made a nice little cupcake-size treat with a glaze-like frosting. Sprinkles made it look adorable on the plate! My kids would love helping me make these. Thanks again!

This is the microwave right now ... I doubled the recipe to have enough to share. I misread the butter being a teaspoon and put in a TBS - I'll let you know

My daughter made the dry mix in little jars as her Christmas gifts for me. I love the cake so much that I asked her to share your link to me. As a lactose intolerance, I used lactaid milk and pareve margarine. Sorry I can't say about the frosting as I am not into extra sugar Thank you for being creative and sharing this recipe.
