Peppermint Swirl Mug Cake

MogoBlog MogoLicious Tasty Tip of the Day:   This yummy mug cake tastes just like peppermint candy, and has swirls of red that makes it look very festive for the holidays.

Peppermint Swirl Mug Cake


  • 4 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3 tbsp fat free milk
  • 3  tsp granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1  drop of red food coloring
    • Optional Toppings
  • Cool Whip
  • whipped cream frosting
  • chocolate drizzle

Directions (make in your MogoBox Mug):

  1. Add all ingredients except food coloring into an over-sized microwave safe mug. Mix with a whisk until batter is smooth. Add in one drop of food coloring. Using a fork, gently swirl in a circular clockwise motion until red swirls form, but stopping before cake batter turns completely red.
  2. Cook in the microwave for about 1 minute or until done. The cake is a bit plain, so I recommend that you serve it with whipped cream, Cool Whip, or a chocolate drizzle. (Optional)

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Yields: 1 Mugs with Attitude® servings
