Stop wasting time baking. There’s a better way to make your favourite breakfast, literally while you brush your teeth. It’s the lazy cook’s dream cooking method, I guess. All you need is a microwave safe mug and a few things you normally keep in your pantry. The best thing is that you can alter these recipes and adapt them to what you have on hand. You simply cannot go wrong with these mug muffins for one (or two, if you have room in your microwave).


Blueberry Muffin

What you’ll need:

¼ cup flour

½ tbsp butter

2 tbsp milk

¼ tsp baking powder

1 tbsp brown sugar

1-2 tbsp frozen blueberries

â…› tsp salt

A pinch of cinnamon


Take your mug, pour the together the flour, baking powder, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon and stir them until all is well mixed. Mix in the butter until there are no large chunks, then add the milk and mix it well. It should look like a thick muffin batter. You can always add a bit more milk if the batter seems dry. Mix in most of the blueberries and leave a few to sprinkle on top. Put it in the microwave and cook on high for about a minute and a half. When it’s done, drizzle some maple syrup on top.

Honey muffin

Combine crushed pineapple, cereal and buttermilk in a large bowl. Give it a few minutes while the cereal absorbes most of the liquid. Stir in egg, oil and one half of the honey. Next, mix in the flour, baking soda and salt. With this batter you should be able to fill 6 mugs all the way to the top. Microwave on high setting for 3 - 4 minutes. Once they are done, pour the remaining honey over them and let them cool a bit.
