How To Make Air Fryer Cinnamon Rolls In A Mug
Start by spraying your mug with olive oil or non-stick cooking spray. In a small mixing bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, salt, and water until a dough forms.
Knead the dough for a few seconds. Use a rolling pin and roll out the dough. Sprinkle the sugar and ground cinnamon on top.
Roll the dough into a large log, roll it together, and place it in the greased mug.
Set the mug into the air fryer at 320 degrees F, air fryer setting, for 5 to 8 minutes. Let cool while you make the icing. Drizzle the icing on top.
Air Fryers: Air Fryers are not all created equal! Some can vary in power and how fast they cook, so it’s essential to experiment a bit the first time you make this recipe. If your cake comes out undercooked, keep cooking until the mug cake is fully cooked.
Mugs: You can use any oven-safe mugs since oven-safe generally means air fryer safe. Depending on the size of our mugs that you own, you may be able to make 1 or 2 mug cakes with this recipe. I would recommend that you use a 14-ounce mug. Since that mug is not too thick, you will find that you will get better results.
Hot: Remember this mug is very hot when it comes out of the air fryer, so use a pair of heat resistant gloves, when removing them.

How Can I Store These?
If you want to make this ahead of time and store it, it will stay fresh for a couple of days. However, I would not recommend adding the icing until right before serving.
Let the mug cake cool to room temperature, remove it from the mug, and place it into an airtight container or Ziploc bag. It will stay fresh for about 2 to 3 days. Then right before serving, rehat int eh microwave or the air fryer, and then make a new batch of icing, to drizzle over it.
How To Freeze:
This is a great freezer snack or breakfast. Make as directed, and then let cool to room temperature. Remove the mug cake from the mug, place it on a baking sheet, and freeze. Freeze until frozen solid, and then put into a freezer-safe container or a freezer bag. They will last for about 2 to 3 months.
When you are ready to eat the Air Fryer Cinnamon Rolls In A Mug, defrost overnight in the refrigerator and then make a batch of fresh icing to drizzle over the cinnamon roll.
