How to make Oreo Mug Cake?
Making oreo mug cake is very simple.
If you want to use the cream and chocolates topping as I did, then separate the cookies from some of the cookies before smashing them. If not, then just crush all the cookies using a rolling pin or a meat hammer. You can also grind cookies in a food processor. Add some hot milk, and baking powder to the crushed cookies and let them sit for 1-2 minutes.
Pour the batter in the mugs. Then add 2-3 rectangle pieces of white chocolates or chocolate chips.
Microwave for 2-3 minutes. Done!
To make the cream and chocolate mixture for topping, combine the chocolates, cookies-cream, and some milk. Then simply microwave them for 2 minutes. Stir and pour the warm mixture over mug cakes. Done!

- This recipe makes 3 servings. For making a single serving of mug cake use 8-9 oreo cookies and 3/4th cup of milk.
- Cooking time is 2-3 minutes because all microwaves are different and require different cooking times. In some microwaves, it is ready under 2 minutes, in others, it might take up to 3 minutes. So basically microwave for 2 minutes first and if they are not done, then again microwave for 30 seconds, and 30 seconds more if needed.
- Always make sure to use a microwave-safe mug when making a mug cake. And use large mugs, small mugs won’t work for this recipe.
- After cooking, the top of the mug cake might look a bit wet, but once it sits for a couple of minutes then that gleam would disappear.
- I have used white chocolate in the mug cakes, you can also replace white chocolate with 1-2 oreo cookies.
- I have topped oreo mug cakes with cream and chocolate mixture, but you can serve them as it is or top with some whipped cream, cocoa powder, or icing sugar. There are many ways to serve it.
Oreo Mug Cake (Step-by-step photo instructions)
Make Cream and chocolate mixture:
- Add 10 Oreo cookies to a bowl and separate the cream.
- Add 50 grams white chocolate and 2-3 tablespoons milk to the cream.
- Microwave for 2 minutes. Alternatively, you can melt chocolate in a double boiler.
- Stir well and keep it aside. Cream and chocolate Drizzle is ready for topping.
Make Oreo Mug Cake:
- Take a ziplock bag and add 25 (10 without cream and 15 with cream) oreo cookies to it.
- Crush them using a rolling pin or a meat hammer. You can also use a food processor or a blender for it.
- Once crushed, transfer crushed cookies to a large mixing bowl.
- Transfer 2 teaspoon crushed cookies to a bowl for topping.
- Add milk and 1 teaspoon baking powder to the mixing bowl.
- Mix it well until the batter is fully incorporated.
- Keep it aside for 2 minutes. Give it a stir.
- Divide batter into 3 large microwave-safe mugs.
- Carefully drop 2-3 white chocolate pieces into each mug, one at a time on top of each other. Make sure the chocolates are fully covered in the cake batter.
- Microwave for 2 minutes at 700W. Keep watching to make sure it doesn’t spillover. If it rises too much and it is about to spill then stop the cooking for 30 seconds and then cook again. All microwaves are different and require different cooking times. Also, it depends on the size of the mug. If it is not cooked after 2 minutes then cook for 30 more seconds. Once cooked, the mug cake should be a little wet at the top.
- Keep it aside to cool for 2-3 minutes. After cooking, the mug cake will rise, but it will deflate a little after resting. That's perfectly fine.
- Generously drizzle with each mug cake with cream and chocolate mixture.
- Top with crushed oreo cookies (optional) and serve.
How to bake mug cake in the oven:
