How do you make an Oreo mug cake in the microwave?

1. Mug: For this Oreo and milk mug cake, you’ll need a microwave-safe mug that holds at least 8 ounces of liquid.

2. Crush: Place the cookies in the mug and then use a fork to crush them into crumbs. Crush them as much as you can – the smaller, the better.

3. Add the milk and stir. You can crush the cookies more once they soften in the milk.

4. Microwave the mug cake on high power for one minute. Check the cake. It should be solid and not liquidy. If it’s not set, cook it for 30 seconds longer.

5. Cool the cake for at least five minutes before eating it. I love adding some whipped cream to the top!

Recipe Tips

  • The cooking time may vary depending on the kind you have. It’s always better to start with less time if you’re not sure, so you don’t overcook the cake.
  • Want a fluffier cake texture? Try adding 1/8 teaspoon of baking powder when you add the milk.
  • For more richness, add chocolate chips before you cook the cake.
  • Dress it up with whipped cream, Cool Whip, or a drizzle of chocolate sauce once the cake is cooled.
  • You can make this recipe with any Oreo cookie – Golden Oreos, Mint Oreos, Holiday Oreos… pick your favorite kind!
  • You can use your favorite nut milk or other non-dairy milk for this recipe, too.
  • If you want to make more than one mug cake, you should cook them separately in the microwave.
  • Don’t skip cooling it – it’s SUPER hot straight out of the microwave and tastes better cooled slightly.


Are mug cakes safe to eat?

Yes, they are safe to eat, just like regular cakes baked in an oven. As long as it’s fully baked, there’s nothing to worry about.

Why are mug cakes chewy? 

Some mug cakes are chewy because they are overcooked. Some recipes have oil, and if there is too much, it can make the cake rubbery, too. Also, know that the cake isn’t a traditional cake texture – it’s cooked Oreos and milk – and won’t taste like a regular cupcake.

How do you make a mug cake better?

Try adding a little splash of vanilla. You can also add chocolate chips to give a mug cake more richness. For a fluffier texture, add 1/8 teaspoon baking powder.

Once you know how to make an Oreo mug cake, you might have to hide the cookies to keep from making it every night. It’s just too easy and too good!

  1. This cake did not wow me because it was uncooked after a minute then I put it in for an additional 30 seconds still no change then 3 more minutes in chunks it was soggy and overall 4/10

  2. This was wonderful! But warning, when it comes out of the microwave, the mug is VERY hot. Be careful!

  3. I had to put it in the microwave for about 3 mins. It still had batter that wasn’t cooked but I gave up. I couldn’t really taste the oreos. It didn’t taste that great. If u want to make this, make sure u add 2 more oreos and add a dash more milk.

    1. I’m sorry that happened. Since there is no leavening or egg in this the texture is different than if it was an actual cake, so it may have been that? I’m not sure how it didn’t taste like Oreos though…

  4. great for beginners! i made it with whipped cream, some baking powder and vanilla! delish! (note: if u add too much milk just spill some out after baking~ no worries!)

  5. Super easy to make and tasted really good. I used for double stuf Oreos so I added a bit more than a half cup of milk and it turned out fine. The texture was a little rubbery on top but the bottom was really soft. Overall it was really good! I’d love to try it with vanilla oreos or other cookies!

  6. I’m disenchanted when it comes to mug cakes because they always taste and/or look like dirt, but for Dorothy @ Crazy4Crust I was willing to give this recipe a try, and… I am so glad I did! This cake is so delicious – like a molten hot cake! The flavor is rich and the texture is spot on!

    For reference: I did 10 mini sandwich cookies instead of 4 large ones and chose to add the 1/8 teaspoon baking powder and dairy chocolate chips.

  7. I tried this recipe a while back. It does indeed turn into a mug cake. However, for me it was greasy beyond. This is a great recipe for kids to be able to make their own “cake”. I love your recipes and make them often. You have turned me into a decent baker. Thank you.
