My kids love baking in a microwave. Being able to make their own after school snack “all by myself” has been great for them and ME. I love it too because let’s face it, I have a sweet tooth. That is why I started with how to make a mug cake with cake mix and just kept going with lots of others below.

After we showed you how to make pasta in the microwave using a bowl we ventured into one servings in a cup. Believe it or not you can really “bake”, boil and cook all sorts of things. The trick is to pair down the ingredients so it fits and doesn’t overflow when cooking in a mug.

Here are a few questions you might have right about now:

How do you make a mug cake better?

You can add mini chocolate chips, sprinkles, or put a tsp of peanut butter in the center like we do with our mug to make a brownie in a mug

Is it safe to eat mug cakes?

As long as you use a microwave and/or oven safe mug then it is really no different safety wise than making it in the oven. It is just made for one instead of a crowd is all. Small batch cake and cookies are great.

This is probably our most popular mug cookie on our site. Oooey and gooey you’ll be hooked! What’s great about all of these is you just add all the ingredients in a mug, stir, and microwave for 1-2 minutes. From start to finish it is less than 15 minutes before you can enjoy all the sweetness!

I guess what we love about easy mug recipes is that you get just enough without having to make an entire cake, or casserole dish full of macaroni and cheese. If you love sweet breads, banana bread in a mug works well if you have a ripe naner on hand.

For an after school snack my kids love pizza in a mug. Especially when it’s Summertime I definitely do NOT want to turn on the oven so a mug cake recipe is just perfect! Great for portion control too when you’re watching your waistline. 😉

Another trick to make your mug recipe “last longer” is use a small spoon when you’re eating it. LOL. Makes it seem like there’s a bit more. Honestly though it is the perfect size for me just about any day.
