Let's face it, if you are lucky enough to have an oven in your college dorm or apartment, baking can be fun, but it can also be very time consuming and messy. Plus, most recipes make several servings that tend to be too much if you are just looking to serve yourself. After trying several recipes, here are five single-serving mug recipes that you can make in the microwave of your dorm room that I am sure will not let you down.
Who doesn't love a blueberry muffin in the morning for breakfast? This recipe I love and uses ingredients that you probably already have most of lying around your dorm room. It is also super healthy and is paleo, vegan, and gluten-free.
2. Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Mug
Chocolate chip cookies are a favorite classic dessert of mine so I wasn't sure how one would turn out in a mug, but this recipe is surprisingly fantastic. The cookie is nicely crisp on the top and sides of the mug and perfectly soft in the middle.
This cinnamon roll in a mug recipe makes two rolls: one for you and a friend, so if you are looking to just serve yourself just simply half the recipe. I personally found this recipe is super easy to make and saves you the most time out of all of these recipes if you were to be making a regular batch.
Banana bread has been one of my favorite recipes to bake for a while, and this mug recipe tastes almost identical to what you would bake in the oven. It uses ingredients you most likely already have and is perfect to make to use up any last ripe bananas you may have.
This brownie in a mug recipe tastes amazing and generates a pretty big single serving. It has such a rich flavor and comes out of the microwave with a finished texture that is almost the same as a typical brownie. If you are looking to satisfy your sweet tooth and love chocolate, this is the recipe to make!
