5 Easy and Delicious Mug Recipes

Mug dishes are mini versions of your favorite recipes but faster, smaller, and just as good. You simply mix all the ingredients together and then bake in the microwave for a minute or two. Then voila! You have a quick meal or dessert for one.

You can buy mug mixes at the store but they're not the cheapest. It's more economical to make at home, and they don't take long to cook at all. Besides, it's hard to find mug mixes for yummy recipes like mac and cheese and cinnamon rolls!

Today, I've put together a list of five of my favorite mug recipes. Each of these has been taste-tested by yours truly and I can guarantee that they'll make your mouth water. Whether it's a meal for one or a way that each family member can pick their favorite dessert, you're going to love these easy recipes.


This recipe is perfect for when you're craving a melty chocolate chip cookie but don't want to make a full batch. This super-easy mug cookie takes just seven minutes to whip up and is the perfect portion size while giving you your sweet tooth fix.


Brownies are always comforting at the end of a long day. Who can beat that warm, chocolatey goodness? But if you're living alone, you probably don't want to eat a full brownie pan every time. (Or maybe you do...I won't judge.)

This brownie in a mug tastes like everything you love in a homemade brownie. Bonus: it takes only five minutes to mix and one minute to cook. What more could you want?


Cinnamon rolls are one of the best breakfasts, in my opinion. It's hard to beat a warm, cinnamon roll with cream cheese icing. This recipe does not disappoint with a hot-from-the-microwave-oven base and sweet frosting. Don't be fooled by that fancy-looking swirl on top either; it's actually incredibly easy to recreate.


Mac and cheese tastes like home and is a fast and filling meal when you're in a rush. This mac and cheese microwavable recipe makes your favorite cheesy pasta dish even easier, taking just a total of ten minutes. It's that classic recipe you love...without all the additives of a box mix. (Pro tip: add some paprika with your salt and pepper. It tastes amazing on mac and cheese!)


This recipe is one of my favorites on this site. The sweet, spongy orange cake with tangy icing makes it a fresh and delicious treat. It's an orange creamsicle flavor that always reminds me of warm weather, with a fluffy cake and orange cream cheese icing. Bake in a mug for just 30 seconds to a minute and cool upside down. Out pops the cutest cake you'll ever see.


I hope you enjoyed this post! Have you ever tried a mug cake? Who knows, maybe you'll see a few more mug recipes on this blog soon. Ciao, Zoe.
