Thank you teacher (Cake in a mug)

DIY; thank you teacher (Cake in a mug)

Just over a month ago the oldest said goodbye at preschool. We then made a thank you gift for the teacher. Last Friday the little man had teacher's day at school and we made another great thank you gift for the teacher.

This cake in a mug you can fit at different times or you just secretly make it nice for yourself.


Thank you for the teacher (Cake in a mug)

When little man said goodbye at preschool he treated volcanoes. However, I also wanted to give the leaders a separate thank you gift. Together with the little man I then made a delicious cake in a mug.

You only need a few ingredients for this and anyone can make it. Towards the end of the school year it is also nice to thank the teacher with a small gift. Finding something original that would be useful to the teacher was not easy for me.

So I made another version of the cake in a mug but this time in a jar. The gift was fortunately appreciated.

What you need?

  • A cup or jar with a lid
  • coconut blossom sugar
  • (spelled) flour
  • cocoa
  • Possibly porcelain markers

How to proceed?

I bought white mugs and let little man draw a picture on them with porcelain markers. After baking in the oven, these mugs are now dishwasher safe so they can actually be used.

Then we filled the cups each with 4 tablespoons of coconut blossom sugar, 4 tablespoons of spelled flour and 2 tablespoons of cocoa. I cut a circle from a sandwich bag. I attached these with a rubber band over the top of the mug so all the ingredients don't fall out.

Then I made a little card from cardboard. Here I wrote down the remaining ingredients and what you have to do before it is a tasty cake.

I repeated the above with a glass jar with lid from Xenos. Here little man made a card to go with it on which I wrote the recipe again. I am very curious to know if the teacher has already enjoyed it.

  • 4 tbsp coconut blossom sugar
  • 4 tablespoons spelled flour
  • 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons or water

Mix it all up. (In the cup.) Then put it in the microwave at 850 watts for 2 minutes. Prick the cake to see if the inside is fluffy but dry. If yes?


What thank you gift does your child give to the teacher??
