SmartPoints® value 7*
Cook: 5 minutes or less
2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
2 packets no-calorie sweetener (like Truvia)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. baking powder
2 tbsp. unsweetened vanilla almond milk
2 tsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tbsp. light/reduced-fat cream cheese
1 tbsp. powdered sugar
1 tsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
2 drops vanilla extract
Spray a microwave-safe mug with nonstick spray. Add flour, sweetener, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Mix well.
Add remaining cake ingredients. Whisk with a fork until uniform.
Microwave for 1 1/2 minutes, or until set. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix icing ingredients until mostly smooth and uniform.
Once cooked, immediately run a knife along the edges to help separate the cake. Firmly place a plate over the mug, and flip so that the plate is on the bottom. Gently shake mug to release cake onto the plate.
Top with icing.

HG Tip: For perfectly swirled icing, use a DIY piping bag. Transfer icing to a plastic bag, and squeeze it down toward a bottom corner. Snip off that corner with scissors, creating a small hole for piping.
