After a long day of Christmas shopping and gift wrapping, sometimes the best thing is a freshly baked treat like cookies, cake, or a little something savoury. But it’s already 9 o’clock, and the kitchen is a mess, so there is no chance of traditional baking.
Good news! Why not throw some simple ingredients into a mug, zap them in the microwave and enjoy? We have complied some awesome and easy mug recipes to match our most festive mugs this season.
Gingerbread Mug Cake
Mixed Berry Crisp
Have a very Beary, or uh, Berry Christmas with this recipe for a Mixed Berry Crisp from the Food Network, in our Beary X-Mas mug. With just seven ingredients, and two minutes in the microwave, it’s like a bear hug for your taste buds.
Maple Syrup Pancakes in a Mug
If you are like Buddy the Elf and carry maple syrup with you wherever you go, then this recipe is for you. You can make this recipe in our “I’m a Human but I was raised by Elves” mug for a quick breakfast, or a sweet snack.
Pizza in a Mug
1-Minute Dark Chocolate Mug Cake For 2
Never underestimate the power of dark chocolate!
Garlic Biscuits in a Mug
The Grinch has garlic in his soul, but Garlic Biscuits are good soul food. These biscuits are gluten free, low on carbs and take less than ten minutes to make. Fair warning: there will only be crumbs left in the house, crumbs even too small for a mouse!
Microwave Peanut Butter Swirl Brownie
We were inspired to put this Peanut Butter recipe in this Rudolph mug by one of our favourite moments in Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer:
Yukon Cornelius: This fog’s as thick as peanut butter!
Hermey: You mean pea soup.
Yukon Cornelius: You eat what you like, and I’ll eat what I like!
