Preparation:

1. Combine all the cake ingredients into a microwave-safe mug. This is a smaller cake, so using an 8 oz mug should be fine. Whisk with a small whisk until batter is smooth and no lumps remain.

2. In a separate small bowl, combine cinnamon swirl ingredients. Microwave briefly, about 20-30 seconds, or until butter melts. (I recommend covering top with paper towel before microwaving.) Stir and mix until uniform. Pour into a small liquid container that has a narrow pouring spout.

3. Working quickly (you don’t want the butter to cool as your swirl will become hard to pour), scoop out 3 tbsp of cake batter and set aside. Pour a swirl into the remaining batter in the mug, starting from the middle and working to the edge (like in the photos above). Pour the rest of the batter back in, making sure to cover the cinnamon swirl completely. Pour another cinnamon swirl on top. It’s okay if you still have a little leftover of the cinnamon mix.

4. Cook cake in microwave for about 1 minute until cake parts are completely cooked. The butter from the cinnamon swirl might separate slightly during cooking which will cause the cinnamon swirl to be a little gooey and wet but it’ll solidify and sink in as the cake cools.

5. While cake is cooking, make the frosting. In a medium bowl, add ingredients. Warm in microwave slightly, about 10 seconds. Make sure to cover bowl with paper towel before heating. Using a really good whisk, whisk until uniform and frosting thickens. Scoop frosting into a piping bag and pipe frosting onto cake. You should have enough to frost two cakes. You can save the remaining for another time.
