This Oreo Mug Cake uses only a few simple ingredients including crushed up Oreo cookies. A single serving dessert that is ready in less than 5 minutes.


  • 5 Original Oreos, Divided
  • 1 tablespoon white granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • Small pinch of kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup Milk, whole, low fat, or nonfat


  1. Crush Oreos - Crush up 4 of the Oreos into a fine crumb (reserving 1 to place on top). I like to place them in a bag and crush up with a rolling pin or you can break up with a fork in the mug. A few clumps from the filling are okay.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients - Add the Oreo crumbs and other dry ingredients to a microwave-safe mug and mix together.
  3. Add Milk - Add the milk and stir to make a cake batter.
  4. 'Bake' in the Microwave - Top the batter with a whole Oreo cookie and cook in the microwave for about 1 minute until just set. You can gently touch the top of the cake to test. Better to under bake and then cook in 5 second intervals until done.
  5. Enjoy!


Any Microwave Safe Dish Can Be Used - You could use another dish like a ramekin or even small bowl - just keep in mind that using a different size may impact the microwave cook time.
