Try these 3 easy mug recipes – the perfect quick ‘fix’ for those with a sweet tooth that won’t quit. And get this… they all take less than 5 minutes to make!

Nutella Mug Muffin

For those who can’t get enough of that chocolatey-nutty goodness, this is a simple recipe for making that trendy Nutella Mug Muffin that everyone on campus is talking about:

  • 15 ml of all-purpose flour
  • 15 ml of brown sugar
  • 10 ml of cocoa powder
  • 30 g of chocolate chips
  • 5 ml of baking powder
  • 30 ml of milk
  • 1 small egg
  • 30 ml of vegetable oil
  • 5 ml of vanilla extract
  • 2 generous scoops of Nutella

Stir together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, chocolate chips and baking powder in a bowl before pouring in the milk, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, Nutella and the egg. Mix together using a fork and transfer into a mug. Microwave for about 40 seconds or until the muffin starts to rise. Enjoy!

Choc Chip Cookie in a Cup

Classics are classics for a reason! Here’s a recipe for a basic Choc Chip Cookie in a Cup:

  • 15 ml of butter
  • 15 ml of white sugar
  • 15 ml of dark brown sugar (firmly packed)
  • 5 ml of vanilla extract
  • A sprinkling of salt
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 60 ml of all-purpose flour
  • 30 g of chocolate chips

Melt the butter in a mug or cup in the microwave and add all of the sugar, vanilla extract, as well as your sprinkling of salt. Mix well before adding in your egg yolk and stirring again. Add in your flour and stir before adding the final touch – the chocolate chips – and mixing well for the final time (when you’re done, the cookie dough should be pliable and moist).

Place in the microwave for about 50 seconds. The less time you leave it in for, the moister the mug cookie will be. Enjoy while still warm.

Easy-to-Make Mug Brownie

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 60 ml of all-purpose flour
  • 15 ml of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 30 g of chocolate chunks of your choice

Melt the butter in the microwave in a mug or ramekin before stirring in your butter, sugars, vanilla and salt. Once you have mixed well, stir in the egg yolk, flour and cocoa powder. Lastly, add the chocolate chunks and place in microwave for about 45 seconds. Dig in!
