Tea-Infused One Minute Mug Cake Recipe | Fall Tea Cake Recipe | Stash Tea

It’s as true now as it has ever been: the world needs more quick and easy dessert recipes.

These two recipes fit that bill. They’re so easy that you only need the most basic level of cooking skills to learn how to make a mug cake. (We’re talkin’ microwave and measuring skills, here.)

With some quick and easy recipes, you risk losing out on flavor. But by adding our teas, you’ll be able to kick the flavor up to another level. We made two recipes for you to choose from: a Snickerdoodle Mug Cake and a Double Chocolate Hazelnut. Our Double Chocolate Hazelnut Mug Cake uses our Decaf Chocolate Hazelnut tea, while our Snickerdoodle Mug Cake uses our seasonal Cinnamon Vanilla herbal tea.

How to make a microwave mug cake

Both of these mug cake recipes are easy to follow, take about 4 minutes from start to finish, and are perfect no matter the time of year. In the winter, when you want to warm up with a fresh-made baked good, fire up the microwave. They also make great sweet treats in the summer when you don’t want to heat up the house by using the oven. You could even add a little ice cream if you want to go there. Now that’s tas-tea!
