Cinnamon Bun in a Mug


Who would have thought you could make a cinnamon bun in a mug? This recipe is amazing for single servings or for when you’re craving a cinnamon bun and don’t have the energy to wait for dough to rise and roll out a whole batch. It’s unbelievable how good and authentic it is.


1. In a bowl, combine melted butter, flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and milk. The dough will be shaggy. Bring it together with your hands.
2. Roll it out on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle.
3. In a small bowl, combine one tablespoon butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Spread over dough.
4. Cut dough into three strips with a knife or pizza cutter.
5. Roll up middle strip.
6. Match up cut edges and roll up the other two strips into one cinnamon roll.
7. Place in a greased mug.
8. Combine powdered sugar, milk and vanilla for glaze and set aside.
9. Cook the bun in a microwave for 90 seconds. If it seems undercooked, cook for 10 additional seconds.
10. Drizzle roll with glaze and enjoy warm.

Tips: If the dough seems a bit too sticky to work with, add a little flour. If it’s too dry, add a little more milk. The end result should be an easy to work with dough that rolls up beautifully.   Don’t overcook. If 90 seconds doesn’t seem long enough (it will vary depending on the strength of your microwave), cook more in 10-second increments. It is better to be a little on the gooey side than overcooked.
