confetti mug cake | blog birthday #5

it's my blog birthday.
well, at least it was this time last week, but i was in mexico celebrating with cervezas, fish tacos and some of the best people i know.

so now on a random tuesday in may, i'm making a confetti mug cake to properly commemorate the occasion.

if you would have asked me when i started this little blog endeavour of mine,  that 5 years later i would have 861 posts under my belt i would have thought you were crazy.  but i do and i can't believe it but i do.  
my love of being in the kitchen has grown immensely with me over these years and i feel a huge sense of accomplishment. i hope that i continue to grow in experience, maybe one day even tackle and master a croissant, but my biggest hope is that my  kids will look back on this one day and see how we ate, shared memories and enjoyed food as a family.

but for now....

confetti mug cake

2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 egg yolk
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
