Cinnamon rolls are usually reserved for the weekend, but you can enjoy a warm, savory-sweet pastry in mere minutes with this genius idea
You know those Sunday mornings when you wake up at your leisure, throw a pot of coffee on, and fill the house with the smell of warm cinnamon rolls baking in the oven—yeah, those are the weekend mornings you live for, right? But you don't have to wait for the weekend day when you don't have a million errands to run to get that same cinnamon-y sensation in your belly. This genius recipe from Kirbie's Cravings for a Cinnamon Roll Mug Cake can be made in roughly 5-8 minutes (just get the ingredients out so they are at the ready). The blogger goes a step further by pointing out that if you wanted to make a big impression and a bigger mug cake, you can up the recipe ingredients by 1 1/2 times and really impress your friends at brunch.
When you pop the mixture and pretty swirl topping in the microwave, you'll be astonished how it transforms into a real cake-like cinnamon roll right before your eyes. Plus, the benefits to making this decadent treat on, say, a Wednesday morning, is that it's perfectly portioned for a serving of one—a.k.a. you won't have a half dozen gooey cinnamon rolls staring at you to eat just one more.
