Pizza In a Mug (temeculablogs)

1 refrigerated biscuits
2 t spaghetti sauce

Berry Cobbler Mug Cake (kirbiecravings)

1/2 c frozen mixed berries
1/2 t cornstarch
4 t sugar, divided
2 T self rising flour
1 T sprite or 7-up
2 T quick oats
1 T unsalted butter, sliced into 2 thin squares

In a large, microwave safe mug add berries and sprinkle with cornstarch and 2 t sugar. Slightly toss the berries with your fingers or a spoon so that they are coated in the cornstarch and sugar. In a small bowl, whisk sugar and self rising flour. Pour flour mix on top of berries. Pour soda over the flour mix (this will help keep the flour mix soft, otherwise it will turn really hard in the microwave). Sprinkle oats on top of the flour. Spread the 2 slices of butter on top. Place a sheet of parchment paper on top of your mug and cook mug cake at full power in microwave for about 2 min. Check on your cobbler. If there are any uncooked oats or flour, push them into the fruit mix. Cook for about another 30 seconds (still covered with a piece of parchment paper). Let cool a few min before serving with ice cream.

Cheddar and Herb Biscuit in a Mug (biggerbolderbaking)

4 T flour
1/2 t baking powder
1/8 t salt
1/2 T cold butter, cubed
3 1/2 T milk
2 T cheddar cheese, grated
2 t chopped herbs (parsley/ oregano/sage etc)

In a microwavable mug, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. Using a fork rub in the cubed butter into the dry ingredients. When done it will resemble fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the milk, cheese and herbs until your mix forms a batter. Microwave for roughly 45 seconds – 1 min. (this timing is based on 1 cup mug and 1200W microwave so yours might vary.) Enjoy warm!

Apple Crisp in a Mug (pinchofyum)

3 T coconut oil (can sub any veg oil)
1/4 c quick oats
2 T chopped pecans
2 1/2 T whole wheat flour, divided (can sub all purpose flour)
2 1/2 T turbinado or brown sugar, divided
1/2 t cinnamon, divided
1/8 t salt
2 – 3 apples (about 2 c chopped)
honey for drizzling

Melt the coconut oil in the microwave. Stir in the oats, pecans, 2 T flour, 2 T sugar, 1/4 t cinnamon and salt. Mix until well combined. Toss chopped apples with 1/2 T flour, 1/2 t sugar and 1/4 t cinnamon. Layer a little spoonful of the oat mix in the bottom of 2, 9 oz ramekins or mugs. Top with about 1 c chopped apples and heap the remaining oat mix over the top. Microwave for 3 min and 30 seconds, the apples should be bubbling and the whole thing will reduce in size. Remove and let stand until cool enough to eat. Be careful because it’s going to be really hot at first! Also, the texture improves as it rests and cools. Drizzle with honey for an extra gooey kind of texture. Note: You can make both at the same time and then save the second one to reheat later. Just wrap it with foil and leave it on the counter for the next morning (any longer than 12 hours and put it in the fridge).

2 t milk
1/2 t caramel or vanilla extract (opt)
1/4 t baking powder

In a small bowl or mug, mix all ingredients except the baking powder. When you mix the ingredients, the consistency should be reasonably thick, sort of the thickness of a mousse (so you may have to add a little less milk, or more flour -­ 1 t at a time ­ until it doesn’t look so runny.) Once everything is thoroughly combined, gently stir in the baking powder. Microwave for 1 min, then in 10­ second bursts until soft and cake­y.) Serve with toppings if desired.

Pull the batter over the center to hide the calzone filling underneath the batter. Microwave for 1 min and 50 seconds – 2 min and 10 seconds or until the top of the calzone is risen and firm to the touch (timing is based on a 1200 Watt microwave and a 1 c mug so your timing might vary.) Garnish with parsley and tomato sauce if you’d like. Enjoy straight away! Note: Always keep a close eye on your mug while in the microwave so it doesn’t over flow or over cook.

1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t onion powder (opt)
1/8 t salt
1/2 t butter, cubed
3 1/2 T milk (or buttermilk)
1 T bacon
1 T cheese

When done it will resemble fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the milk, bacon and cheese until your mix forms a batter. Microwave for roughly 45 seconds – 1 min (this timing is based on a 1200 Watt microwave and a 1cup mug so yours might vary.) Note: Cooking time will vary greatly depending on your microwave and the width and depth of the mug. Always keep a close eye on your mug while in the microwave so it doesn’t over flow or over cook.

Loaded Baked Potato Soup In A Mug (biggerbolderbaking)

3/4 c water
3 T potatoes, in small cubes
1 T white onion, chopped
2 T cheddar cheese
1 T bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 t cornstarch
1/2 c chicken stock (or vegetable stock)
1/4 c milk
salt & pepper
sour cream for garnish (opt)

Add potatoes and water into a large microwaveable mug. Microwave for 3 – 4 min or until the potatoes are tender. Check on it half way through and stir. Once cooked drain away the cooking water. Into the potatoes stir in the bacon, cheese and onions and cornstarch. The cornstarch will thicken your soup. Stir in the stock and milk and season with salt and pepper. Place in the microwave and cook for 2 1/2 – 3 min or until it thickens and all of your ingredients have heated through. (Cooking time is based on a 1200 Watt microwave so your timing might vary.) Always keep a close eye on your mug while in the microwave so it doesn’t over flow or over cook. Serve topped with sour cream and some more sprinkles of bacon and chives. Note: Use a large mug because the water can bubble up in the microwave. Cut your potatoes small so they will cook faster. They can be mixed up in advance for an even speedier meal. Cooking time will vary greatly depending on your microwave and the width and depth of the mug. You can bake them in the oven at 350 F for roughly 10 – 12 min. Every mug is different so check on it after 10 min.
