Mug Cakes For Every Meal Of The Day To Make Your Meal Prep Quick & Easy

The Labels and Lacquer girls love mug cakes. They are just so easy to make. It’s pretty amazing that you can have a cake like consistency in a mug in less than 5 mins. Science is crazy haha It makes for a perfect late night snack. When you don’t have much to make for dessert, but you have eggs, flour, and sugar – you basically have everything for a mug cake.

It also makes for a nice breakfast snack. This morning I made myself blueberry muffins in a mug. It makes mornings quick, easy, and delicious. I know it’s back to school season, making easy mornings needed. And even if you’re not going back to school, we know you’re busy and could use food hacks.

We found a variety of meals all of which you can make in a mug! For breakfast, dinner, and dessert we've got you covered. Get that microwave ready!
