  • Mix whole wheat flour, wheat germ, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt together in a small bowl. Add to the mug; stir well until combined.

  • Cook in the microwave in 40-second intervals until the top springs back when lightly pressed, about 1 minute 20 seconds.

  • Whisk confectioners' sugar and water together in a small bowl to make icing. Invert cake onto a serving plate and drizzle icing on top.

Cook's Note:

Substitute margarine for the butter if desired.
