This is delicious! It taste like a warm cinnamon bun! It was very easy to make and to serve. I will absolutely make this again and again and again!

Turned out really nice. I doubled the recipe to make four cakes for the whole family, and substituted regular cake mix with a gluten free one, we have celiac in our family. I was surprised, they all popped right out of the mug, and everyone loved it! This is on the simpler side of baking and took no time at all. I'd recommend this to all my friends.
