Who else gets cravings for a little baked good now and again? Well after the holidays with treats and sweets everywhere… the sweet tooth withdrawal is hitting me a bit. That’s why it’s good to have a quickie microwave (or oven!) blondie cake recipe ready to go. I do not snack past 8pm, it’s one of those simple adjustments you can make and see big results and feel much better each morning. So when it’s 7:30 at night and I know I want a dessert to #treatmyself …this fluffy blondie is everything I need and I’m done well before 8. Hows that for a hack to have your cake and eat it to?! Plus… this all takes place in 1 bowl, because you don’t need to do anymore dishes.
Thoughts on microwaves… they’re not the most nutritious way to cook and I use mine rarely, (which is nice because I hate cleaning them), but they’re good to have in a pinch. The great part about this recipe is, the choice is yours depending on if you own one and depending on how often you like to use them. This brings me back to mug cakes in college dorm rooms… except it’s much better 😉

I was craving something sweet today and this hot the spot! Super easy and delicious! I didn’t have vanilla protein powder, so I just left it out and used vanilla almond milk. Will definitely make again!
Perfect, so happy you were able to adapt with what you had on hand.
What a little beauty of a cake! ♥♥♥
I’m with you on the microwave. I really dislike them and hardly ever use mine. But when there’s a mug cake to be made — bingo!
definitely the best mug cake i’ve ever seen – the texture looks perfect! i agree that microwaves are great in a pinch. and when you have a sweet tooth craving, making it single serve is so nice. i’ve got to get my hands on some of that protein powder! xo
How bad is it when a mug cake looks good… until it’s lava on the inside- HAHA. That was me in college.
You’d love the vanilla protein powder, it’s so good!! XO
Oh, this sounds perfect! I love having a little something after dinner and this would fit the bill well. Brilliant! xo.
Thanks, doll!! Definitely will be a great after-dinner treat.
I love mug cakes, especially when its high in protein and has good for me ingredients! Amen to single serving recipes!
Thanks, Bethany!! Amen indeed 😉 less chance of a binge!
