Funfetti Mug Cake Recipe - It's a light, fluffy, simple vanilla cake overflowing with colorful sprinkles that comes together in just a few minutes — a perfect way to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or any special occasion!

Mug cakes are impeccable when you're a home and wanting for some cake. Rather than heating a whole cake, which can take up to two or three hours, a mug cake takes under 2 minutes, and you can make single serving as well!

Funfetti Mug Cake is my latest microwave mug cake incarnation, and this one is super  yummy. I made this cake two times till today first on valentine day for my tiny valentine i.e my toddler aarush. and second time last weekend for my elder valentine ;) my husband. This is so delish mug cake, both of them really liked it.

What is Funfetti ?

Funfetti is a homemade sprinkle cake. The sprinkles cake was created in 1989 when the Pillsbury Company introduced a new type of cake that is called "Funfetti Cake". This is also called Confetti Cake. This was a white cake mix with multicolored sprinkles mixed into the batter and bake as usual. 

Most recipes call for 1 min on high in the microwave, if the cake is still not baked yet, put it back on high in the microwave at 30 seconds burst until the top of the cake is dry.

You don't need to wait for any occasion when you're craving for cake or sweets, this is the better way to enjoy your cravings.

This mug cake batter takes only a couple of minutes to stir together, and then the cake bakes up in the microwave in another minute or two. That means you’re less than five minutes away from your own personal vanilla cake studded with happy, colorful sprinkles!

And if you want to make several mug cakes at once, simply multiply the recipe accordingly, stir up the batter in one bowl, divide it evenly between the appropriate number of mugs, and microwave them one at a time. 

I just double the ingredients and used the batter in one mug and two wide microwave safe bowl. Looks like a party to me! HaHa
