Cookie in a Mug

A cookie in a mug, also known as a mug cookie or a microwave cookie, is a quick and easy single-serving cookie that can be made in a mug and cooked in the microwave. It's a great option when you're craving a freshly baked cookie but don't want to make a whole batch. Here's a basic recipe to guide you in making a cookie in a mug:


  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate chips (or any other mix-ins of your choice)


  1. In a microwave-safe mug, melt the butter in the microwave for about 20-30 seconds until fully melted.
  2. Add the granulated sugar, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and salt to the melted butter. Stir well with a spoon until the sugars are dissolved and the mixture is smooth.
  3. Add the egg yolk to the mug and mix until well combined.
  4. Stir in the all-purpose flour until no lumps remain and the batter is smooth.
  5. Fold in the chocolate chips or any other mix-ins of your choice, such as nuts, dried fruit, or sprinkles.
  6. Smooth out the top of the batter with the back of a spoon.
  7. Microwave the mug on high power for about 45-60 seconds. Cooking time may vary depending on the wattage of your microwave, so start with a shorter time and check for doneness.
  8. The cookie is done when it has risen and set but is still slightly gooey in the center. Be careful not to overcook it, as it can become tough and dry.
  9. Allow the mug cookie to cool for a few minutes before enjoying. It will be very hot right out of the microwave.
  10. You can eat the cookie directly from the mug or transfer it to a plate. Feel free to top it with a scoop of ice cream, whipped cream, or a drizzle of chocolate sauce for added indulgence.

Note: Remember that the texture and taste of a mug cookie may not be exactly the same as a traditional baked cookie. It's a quick and convenient option that satisfies your cookie cravings in a matter of minutes.

Enjoy your freshly baked cookie in a mug!
