|Brown Sugar Mug Cake and Frosting|
Real talk - Sometimes you just need a little cake. Not a lot of cake. Not cake for the whole family. Just a little bit of cake to get you though the day.
I've made snack cakes for years. That's nice when I want a little cake for all 5 of us. This recipe makes enough cake for just 1 person.
Brown Sugar Cake for 1 (with Frosting)
2 Tablespoons all purpose flour
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
1 Tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon milk
1 teaspoon oil
drop of vanilla
Mix all ingredients in a bowl.

Now set the cake aside to cool and make frosting.
Frosting (for 1 cake)
3 Tablespoons powdered sugar
1 teaspoon soft butter (NOT melted)
1/2 teaspoon milk
1 drop of vanilla
Using a fork, mash powdered sugar into the butter.

Once the cake is cooled completely, frost the cake.
Bakers Tip: If you frost a warm cake, the frosting will melt into the cake. (Some people like it like that.)
