It’s 10 p.m. and you feel like having a sweet treat. But if you don’t have anything in your pantry, that means you have to make something.

Of course, there aren’t many people who are up to baking an entire cake at a moment’s notice. Besides, baking takes far too long. That’s where the mug cake comes in.

Mug cake: it gets its name from the fact that it’s made just like a normal cake with flour, sugar, eggs, and oil — except that it’s cooked in a coffee mug instead of a cake pan. You can even bake it in the microwave instead of an oven. That means it’s ready in just a few minutes!

Even though mug cakes are delicious, most of them leave a lot to be desired when it comes to the healthy side of things. But now, there’s even more reason to rejoice. These mug cake recipes aren’t just delicious and ready in minutes — but they’re also healthy.

Yep, that means that you can have a cake that is gluten free, low carb, low sugar, or even vegan. So, the next time you have a late-night craving, don’t reach for the cookies. Make a healthy but delicious mug cake instead.
