Microwave Mug Cakes we love

Warm, sweet, cakey and ready in 5 minutes, what’s not to love about microwave mug cakes?

We’ve all been there.

Those times when there is not a single piece of chocolate left in the house, no cookie crumbs in sight and not even a sad sticky lolly at the bottom of your handbag, and yet the sugar cravings are BAD! Well fret no more because we’ve fallen hard for mug cakes and have a collection for you to try when the pantry is almost bare! Simply spoon a little flour, a little egg, milk, vanilla, cocoa and your favourite ingredients (hello peanut butter) into a mug and microwave for 1 minute. Sugar dragon, tamed.

Here are some of our favourite mug cake flavours from across the web. Click the image to be directed to the original recipe, enjoy!

Chocolate and it’s many variations

A sweet little chocolate mug cake like our recipe is sure to hit the spot when you’re low on time or ingredients, but to make the most of this glorious single-serve treat, let’s talk marshmallows, Oreos, mint, jaffa, peanut butter and coffee! Maybe not all together, but you get the drift…


Cappuccino Mug Cakes

Whipped cream, chocolate dusting. Enough said!


Oreo Choc-Chip Mug Cakes

Nothing satisfies like the crunch of an Oreo where it shouldn’t be….


Choc Peanut Butter Mug Cakes

Simply add a hefty dollop into your mug cake mixture for a molten peanut treat of top a chocolate cake with peanut butter mousse. Both options will blow your mind!


S’Mores Mug Cakes

To the uninitiated, S’mores are a classic American treat consisting of toasted marshmallow and chocolate sandwiched between graham crackers. We think this mug cake is a far better version of the classic, just look at that pillowy toasted marshmallow on top!


Very Vanilla Mug Cakes

We may be biased, but the sweet warm smell of vanilla wafting from a warm cake is hard to beat. These mug cakes take a golden vanilla mug cake base and transform them into mug cake versions of great cake classics!

Blueberry Muffin Mug Cakes

With frozen and fresh blueberries easier to source than ever before, this treat should be at the top of your Friday night list! Add a little maple syrup to finish for some extra deliciousness.


 Banana Bread Mug Cakes

One taste of this delicious recipe and you’ll be hoarding ripe bananas for Friday night mug cakes in front of the TV! Just add coffee or caramel ice cream 😉


Salted Caramel Mug Cakes

This sweet-salty flavour is always an emphatic yes for us. The hardest decision here will be cream or ice cream on top!


Snickerdoodle Mug Cakes

Take one Vanilla Mug Cake, add cinnamon to the batter and a heavy sprinkle of cinnamon sugar on top and you’ll be reaching for the Eggnog before you know it.
