5 Mug Cake Recipes You Absolutely Have To Try

When you want a quick dessert, mug cakes are the answer!

Two cupcakes with a coffee mug, plates, and glasses in the background.

I am very much a dessert person (a name that Claire Saffitz likes to call herself - and her cookbook too). But often, I don't have the time to create entire cakes, cookies, or crumbles, and especially not during a semester. So when there's times I really feel like baking something (and eating something delicious), I'll whip up some mini cakes and cookies - in microwaved form of course. Don't get me wrong, these are no replacements for the oven-baked versions. But they are great for a dessert that comes together in a quick pinch.

Classic Chocolate Mug Cake


Try this chocolate mug cake recipe from Table for Two! It's full of chocolate chips and/or hazelnut spread and is a delightfully chocolatey treat.

Apple Pie Mug Cake


This apple spice mug cake (also from Table for Two) sounds absolutely delicious! You could even top it with a little mix of chopped apples coated in cinnamon and sugar for an even more comforting dessert.

Funfetti Mug Cake


What is more festive than this funfetti version of a mug cake from Mel's Kitchen Cafe!? Classic vanilla paired with brightly colored sprinkles is a dessert that can bring a smile to anyone's face.

Chocolate Chip Mug Cookie


You might be surprised that a chocolate chip mug cookie works, but it really does! Try out this recipe from Mel's Kitchen for a beautifully soft, gooey, and chocolatey cookie.

Peanut Butter Mug Cake


This mug cake is for people who love peanut butter and chocolate together. Oh, Sweet Basil's recipe is a great one to try if you fall into this category!

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday.

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.
