I really liked this Vanilla Mug Cake! The frosting had the perfect amount of sweetness, and it was just the right amount of cake for one person to enjoy.

I really like the vanilla flavor of this cake. However, I'd leave out the salt next time I make it. Even a pinch of salt is noticeable in such a small serving. This recipe would taste great with homemade vanilla sauce or icing to drizzle over the top!
