Have you seen the viral Oreo and milk mug cake floating around the web? The claim was that you can combine crushed cookies with milk and heat in the microwave for a cake- ready in minutes.

Too good to be true? Nope. It’s real and it is DELICIOUS.

This recipe was incredibly surprising for so many reasons. I expected the texture to be off, but it was surprisingly light (or lighter than I’d planned for). I did add the extra ingredient of baking powder to get more cake like vs dense and chewy- Which worked beautifully.

If you want a super fast cake treat, but don’t want to turn on the oven, this is for you.

Oreo Microwave Cake Ingredients

If you are new to the world of mug cakes. this is the perfect recipe to start with. It’s impossible to mess up and gives you a good chocolate flavor. Ready in about 2 minutes, you just can’t help but give it a try. Here is what you need:

  • Oreo Cookies– So far we have only tried them with the classic chocolate flavor, but we look forward to using some of their more seasonal flavors as well.
  • Baking Powder: I have made with and without baking powder. With gives the texture a nice little change that makes it 100% worth it.
  • Milk– Try not to use anything under 2%

TIP: For a good cake texture you really need to blend the cookies into a powder. I use a high powered blender (affiliate) or my food processor (affiliate).

How to Make Oreo Mug Cake in the Microwave

  1. Mist the inside of a mug with baking spray. This is going to help keep the cake from sticking to the sides and make it more enjoyable to eat. Set the mug aside.
  2. Blend or process the oreo cookies until fine crumbs.
  3. Stir the crumbs, baking powder, and milk into the prepared mug cuntil combined.
  4. Heat in the microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds.
  5. Cool 1 minute and enjoy.

TIP: The cooking time may vary depending on the microwave wattage.

Our microwave is 950 watts. A higher wattage microwave will take less time to cook. If yours is a lower wattage you may need to add additional 30 seconds to 1 minute.

If you are unsure, I always suggest starting with a lower time and adjusting from there.

Mug Cake Tips and FAQs

What size mug do I need for a mug cake?

Regular sized mugs will work great for this recipe. However, if you want to double the recipe I recommend cooking them both separately.

What is a good topping for Oreo cake?

We like to top ours with whipped cream or a small scoop of vanilla ice cream. It would also be delicious with fresh fruit like strawberries or raspberries!

Can I add mix-ins to a mug cake?

Yes! Try adding chocolate chips, a spoon full of nut butter, or substituting the milk with your favorite nut milk.

Why is my mug cake rubbery?

If you find that your Oreo cake is rubbery, you may have overcooked it. Start with a lower time and adjust as needed.
