10 Delicious Mug Cakes You can Enjoy Guilt-Free

Looking for a dessert that will satisfy your sweet-tooth but won’t derail your healthy eating? Mug-cakes, also known as cakes-in-a-mug, are the perfect small bites for these cravings.

If I had to choose between sweet or savory foods, 9 out of 10 times, I would pick savory. I don’t really have a sweet tooth which is great because I have a slow metabolism. Yet, even with a palate that leans toward savory, I still find myself with the occasional sweet cravings. Cake mugs are perfect for these times.

I like them because they’re bite-sized and they disappear after one serving. You don’t have to face the temptation of eating half a cake over the course of the week. So the next time your sweet tooth kicks in, take your pick of these (almost) guilt-free desserts. Many require only a few minutes of prep time and just a few ingredients.

They all look incredible but I think I’m going to try the 5-Minute Toffee cake first. My kids would be all over the Cinnamon Roll and my husband’s favorite will be Cake Batter.
