Cinnamon Roll in a Mug



1½ tablespoons salted butter, melted (set aside)½ cup all-purpose flour½ teaspoon baking powder2 tablespoons granulated sugar3 tablespoons milk, I prefer whole milk½ teaspoon vanilla


1 tablespoon butter2 tablespoons brown sugar½ teaspoon cinnamon


⅓ cup confectioners’ sugar1 tablespoon milk, (can also use heavy cream)



Add the flour, baking powder, granulated sugar, milk, vanilla, and melted butter to a small bowl and stir until combined.One the dough is solid, drop onto a clean and slightly floured surface.Use your hands to flatten dough into a rectangle .


In a small bowl, melt the butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon for about 1 minute. (Depending on how cold your butter is.) Stir well.


Pour filling over dough rectangle and then roll up into a cinnamon roll shape.Place roll into mug (I prefer to use a standard size mug, nothing too wide). Make sure your mug is sprayed with non-stick spray or greased.Heat roll in microwave for 90 seconds. If the dough appears WET on top, it may need to heat for a few more seconds. (10 second increments.) If the dough appears dry the cinnamon roll is done. You can also test with a toothpick.


Stir confectioners sugar and milk together in a bowl until smooth.Pour over warm cinnamon roll in the mug or invert the roll onto a plate and pour glaze over top.
