Sweet Potato Mug Cake, A Healthyish Brand Recipe

What You’ll Need

1/3 cup smashed sweet potato

½ teaspoon cinnamon

1 Tablespoon melted unsalted butter

2 Tablespoons 2% milk

1 pouch of Healthyish Bright White Cake mix

1 pouch of raw pecans

1 pouch of dark chocolate chips


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grab a mug and spray it with baking spray.
  • Add the butter to the mug and melt it in the microwave for 5 -10 seconds.
  • Add in your Healthyish Bright White Cake Mix.
  • Add in the 2% milk. Blend well. I used a fork to blend everything together but you can use whatever you have on hand.
  • Stir in the cinnamon and the smashed sweet potato. Mix well. I cooked my sweet potato in the microwave until it was soft all the way through. Then I allowed it too completely cool off before slicing it down and smashing it. Be sure to measure out 1/3 cup.
  • Stir in half of the raw pecans from your baking kit. (save the other half for the top, once its finished baking)
  • Bake in the microwave for roughly 1 minute.

Top your mug cake with the rest of the raw pecans and sprinkle some dark chocolate chips on top. Finish with powdered sugar or a drizzle of maple syrup.
