9+ Easy Mug Recipes: Perfect Quick Microwave Meals

These easy mug recipes are not just delicious but they are also super convenient. This makes them perfect when you’re feeling lazy or don’t have much time to cook a full meal.

All these recipes make use of basically just a mug and a microwave. You will also need a few ingredients but that too is usually pretty minimal. One of the best things is that you basically don’t need any cooking at skills to be able to quickly put these together.

As you could imagine most of these are best enjoyed as a snack but as I mentioned earlier you can even eat these as a full meal. If I am really hungry I usually double a recipe and use a really big mug or a bowl.

Some of these microwave mug recipes are perfect for a simple breakfast others for a tasty dessert and even some that will make for a light lunch or dinner.

Deliciously Gooey Banana Mug Cake

Banana Mug Cake
If you love banana cakes, then you’re going to love this super simple mug cake. This cooks out to be incredibly rich with quite a dominate banana taste. It’s perfect if you’re a huge fan of banana flavoured desserts.

You can eat this tasty cake on its own or you can serve it with a scoop of ice cream. Both options will result in an incredibly tasty dessert.

 

Deliciously Easy Omelette in a mug

Omelette in a mug
Mug meals are great for a quick and easy cooked breakfast and this tasty omelette in a mug is a perfect example of exactly that. It’s super simple and has a ton of flavor. If you’re in a rush you can eat it on the go, just make sure your mug has a handle because it’s going to be hot.

You can mix up some of the extras that you add for different flavors. For example, try adding some chives and salmon instead of ham and diced bell peppers. It will give you a much different tasting omelette.

 

Super Simple French Toast in a Mug

If you love French toast but don’t have the time to cook it in a frypan then this is the next best thing. The end result is a flavor packed eggy bread that goes amazing drizzled with a bit of maple syrup.

If you have some crispy bacon bits these go fantastic sprinkled over the top of the French Toast. For a sweet version, a scoop of ice cream goes great with this mug recipe.

 

3 Ingredient Nutella Mug Cake

Out of all the easy mug recipes that you can do this is certainly one of my favourite. The end result is a rich gooey cake that tastes absolutely amazing.

You only need 3 simple ingredients to make this cake and is cooked in just a minute and a half. I highly recommend trying this one out if you’re a fan of Nutella.

 

Deliciously Moist Espresso Mug Cake

This simple mug cake combines the delicious flavours of coffee and chocolate. It cooks out to be quite fluffy and is the perfect pick me up cake for the morning or afternoon.

Much like most of the tasty cakes you can do in the mug this too goes great with some ice cream. It also goes perfect with a nice hot coffee on the side.

 

Incredibly Tasty Cookie Dough in a mug

Cookie dough in a mug is one of the best things you can cook. It’s super simple and the end result is gooey bits of chocolate in a rich cookie batter. You can always eat it raw but keep in mind of the health risks with raw egg.

This tasty mug cake recipe can be enjoyed by itself but if you want to take it to the next level then something like a cookies and cream ice cream really goes well with it.

 

Simply Amazing Baked Oatmeal in a Mug

Making a simple “baked” oatmeal in a mug is super easy and the end result is incredibly fulfilling. It’s the perfect breakfast mug recipe that you can eat whilst on the go.

You can add a variety of different berries to this dish for an entirely different tasting oatmeal. Experiment a little to get the best tasting breakfast for you.

 

Super Easy Mac n Cheese in a Mug

Mac and cheese is surprisingly easy to make in a mug. All you need is 3 simple ingredients to make this incredibly tasty snack. You won’t be going back to supermarket packet mixes after trying this delicious recipe.

You can cook the pasta in water or milk but for the best tasting mac and cheese I highly recommend cooking it in the milk.

 

Tasty Scrambled Eggs in a Mug

If you’re after easy mug recipes, then this scrambled eggs in a mug is exactly that. All you need to do is beat together the eggs with some cream and then cook it in the microwave. Just be careful to not overcook it as it can go a bit rubbery.

If you need to make a lot more than just one serve, then you can easily do this recipe in a jug instead.

 

Delicious Mug Coffee Cake

Mug Coffee Cake
This coffee mug cake is a take on the more classic version that you usually make to go along with some nice hot coffee. It has a delicious topping that I highly recommend making as it does take this cake to a whole new level.

You can enjoy this cake by itself or you can have something like whipped cream, ice cream or even hot custard. It’s totally up to you what you end up having with it, if anything.

 

Chocolate Brownie in a Mug

This chocolate brownie in a mug is an incredibly dangerous tasty dessert or snack as it can be so addictive. It’s super easy to quickly make so it’s perfect for when you’re feeling a bit hungry.

When it comes to cooking anything in a mug & microwave you risk of having it overflow. To help prevent making a complete mess out of my microwave I simply place a plate underneath the mug. This way if it does happen to overflow it just simply messes up the plate rather than the entire microwave.
