Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons all purpose flour (whole wheat works too)
  • 1 scoop (28g) cinnamon roll flavour whey protein (vanilla works too)
  • 2 packets splenda, or any other sweetener of your choice
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted (or more if preferable)
  • 1/4 cup milk (8 tbsp)
  • 1/6 - 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Optional ingredients (toppings)

  • 6 tablespoons all purpose flour (whole wheat works too)
  • 1 scoop (28g) cinnamon roll flavour whey protein (vanilla works too)
  • 2 packets splenda, or any other sweetener of your choice
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted (or more if preferable)
  • 1/4 cup milk (8 tbsp)
  • 1/6 - 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • (For icing) 4 teaspoons powdered sugar
  • OR
  • 2-4 tablespoons sprinkles
  • OR
  • Any other toppings you'd prefer (fruit, vanilla sauce, ready made frosting, marshmallows, syrup, etc.)

Method

  • STEP 1
    Combine all the dry ingredients into bowl and mix until well combined.
  • STEP 2
    Add egg, melted butter, and milk. Whisk with fork until thoroughly mixed into batter consistency.
  • STEP 3
    Pour half (approx. 115g of batter) into small mug or bowl to yield one serving. If you're using a topping such as marshmallows or sprinkles, I recommend mixing them into the batter as well.
  • STEP 4
    Microwave for 40-70 seconds. It might need longer or shorter depending on microwave and wattage but I've found this to be a fairly accurate range.
  • STEP 5
    If you would like to add a glaze, mix 4 teaspoons powdered sugar with a few drops water and stir, then drizzle onto cake. Enjoy :)
