Breakfast in a Mug: 90-Second Blueberry Muffin

It's fair to say I've become obsessed with microwavable desserts in a mug. I've made some fudgey 60-Second Brownies, a gooey Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie and a Crumb-Topped Mug Coffee Cake.

Now it's time for a muffin in a mug, or as I like to call it (because I'm super lame), a muggin. This blueberry muffin makes the perfect breakfast-for-one, easy mid-afternoon snack, or dessert (because who are we kidding, this is pretty much a glorified cake).

Here's how to make it:


  • Cooking spray
  • 1 tbsp butter, softened
  • 2 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 tsp baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp milk (I use skim)
  • 1 tbsp blueberries (fresh or frozen)

    To make:

    Spray the inside of a mug with cooking spray to prevent sticking.

    Add the pat of butter to the mug and use a fork to blend with the sugar and vanilla extract. Mix in the the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Add the milk and combine, leaving some lumps. Mix in desired amount of blueberries.

    Microwave on high for 90 seconds. Check for doneness and add up to another minute if needed.

    Let sit for a minute before serving. Play around with the recipe by adding a variety of berries, brown sugar or a small handful of oats.
