TikTok Oreo Mug Cake!
Microwavable mug cakes are usually very simple, but this mug cake is pretty much effortless! It’s literally the simplest recipe you can ever make that tastes amazing.
After making this recipe for myself, I can understand why this 2 ingredient Oreo mug cake is so popular on Tik Tok.
You don’t even need flour to make it! That’s because Oreos have flour, sugar, oils and raising agents already in them. When crushed and mixed with milk, you create a cake batter which bakes into a cake.
Watch How To Make It
If you love Oreos, then you’re in for a real treat. These recipes below are so tasty and perfect for using up leftover Oreos.
Below are the two ingredients needed for this recipe (no surprises here):
- Oreos: I used classic Oreo sandwich cookies with a cream filling. I haven’t tried this mug cake with other Oreo flavours before. If you do, let me know how it goes in the comments below!
- Milk: I used full fat milk to make this cake, however you can use vegan alternatives.
When you place Oreos in the microwave the moisture becomes trapped and causes the Oreo cookies to turn soft. You’ll end up with a soft and warm cookie after microwaving it.
How To Make An Oreo Mug Cake Tik Tok Style
Below is a step-by-step guide on how to make this easy 2 ingredient Oreo mug cake in the microwave. Full recipe instructions are on the recipe card.
Place the Oreo cookies in a microwavable mug and use a fork to crush the Oreos into small crumbs. Alternatively, you can blitz the cookies in a food processor to create fine crumbs.
TIP: It’s okay to have some lumps, once milk is added the cookies will soften and you’ll be able to crush them further.
Pour milk in the cup and mix together until evenly distributed.
Place the mug in the microwave and cook on a high heat for 1 minute. If the mug cake is still runny, continue to cook in 10 second intervals until it has solidified.
Leave the mug cake to cool down for 1 minute, add your toppings and enjoy.
How To Serve
Serve this mug cake with vanilla ice cream and crushed Oreos. You can also drizzle chocolate sauce or caramel sauce on top. If you’re still thinking of ideas, below are a few suggestions:
- Whipped Cream
- Biscoff Ice Cream
- Honeycomb Ice Cream
- Fresh Fruits (raspberries, strawberries, blueberries)
How To Store & Freeze
I suggest you eat this mug cake straight away; they’re usually best eaten immediately as opposed to saving it for another day.
If you want to keep it, cakes usually last around 2 days before it starts to dry out. You could freeze this mug cake by scooping the cake out, storing it in a freezer-safe container and placing it in the freezer for up to 3 months.
To defrost, take the cake out of the freezer and leave to thaw in the fridge.
Why Is My Mug Cake Hard And Rubbery?
The main culprit for hard and rubbery mug cakes is overcooking it in the microwave. It was most likely left to cook for too long. Start by cooking the cake in the microwave for 60 seconds, if it’s still runny then continue to cook in 10 second intervals until baked.
It’s better to undercook the mug cake first and proceed to bake it further than to overcook it and making it turn rubbery and hard.
Keep a close eye on your mug cake! If it looks set and ready before 60 seconds take it out of the microwave and stick a skewer through it. If it comes out clean, then it’s ready.
The microwave I used is 800 watts and it took me one minute to cook my Oreo mug cake in the microwave.
If you’re using a hotter microwave, then you’ll want to bake the mug cake for less time. However, if your microwave is cooler than 800 watts, then you’ll want to bake it for longer.
My Top Tips
Keep an eye on the mug cake whilst it’s cooking in the oven. Microwave temperatures vary, so can take a longer or quicker time to bake depending on the microwave you are using.
To improve the taste and texture of this mug cake, add half a teaspoon of vanilla extract and a small pinch (1/4 teaspoon) of baking powder. This will make the cake lighter and fluffier and the vanilla will add extra flavour.
Want to make this recipe vegan? Instead of using cows’ milk use non-dairy milk like almond milk, soya milk or oat milk.
If you want a richer cake, add dark, milk or white chocolate chips into the cake batter. Add bigger chunks of chocolate for pools of melted chocolate throughout.
Make sure the mug cake batter isn’t more than 3/4 full of your cup or the mixture can overflow when baking in the microwave.
