This Oreo Mug Cake is the dessert you've been dreaming of: it is unbelievably easy to make, takes only one mug and 5 minutes to come together, and tastes divine. It is chocolate heaven - rich, moist, and bursting with the yummy chocolate flavor. 


  • 4 tbsp milk
  • 6 Oreos
  • 2 tsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 2 tsp all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1/3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • Optional but strongly recommended: chocolate chips and Oreos for serving


  • Take a microwave safe mug (10-12oz capacity)
  • Add the milk and Oreos, and use a fork to crush the Oreos fully until the mixture resembles a paste of sorts
  • Add the oil, vanilla and sugar, and use the same fork to stir until combined
  • Lastly, sift in the dry ingredients: flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Use the fork to gently mix until just combined, taking care not to overmix
  • Microwave on high for 60-90 seconds (it takes me around 85s) until the cake is fully cooked
  • While still warm, sprinkle over chocolate chips so they melt from the heat of the cake. Spread the chocolate, and top off with crushed Oreos
  • Serve and enjoy!
