QUICK AND EASY MICROWAVE BLUEBERRY MUFFIN MUG CAKES.

Quick And Easy Microwave Blueberry Muffin Mug Cakes

Here's another quick and easy weekend breakfast treat for you. 90 second microwave blueberry muffin cake with a crunchy, sweet streusel topping.

I've tried quite a few of these microwave muffin recipes and this is the best one I've found by far. I think it's the streusel topping that really makes it, of course it doesn't hurt that there's only minimal washing up. An instant favourite.

Ingredients for Quick and Easy Microwave Blueberry Muffin Mug Cakes (makes a single serving):

4 tablespoons plain flour,

2 tablespoons granulated sugar,

1/4 teaspoon baking powder,

3 tablespoons milk,

1 tablespoons vegetable oil,

10 - 15 blueberries.

Streusel topping (enough for 2/3 mug cakes according to taste).

1 tablespoon cold butter,

2 tablespoons plain flour,

1 1/2 tablespoons light brown sugar.

How to make Quick And Easy Microwave Blueberry Muffin Mug Cakes

1. To make the streusel topping rub the cold butter, flour and brown sugar together to form breadcrumbs.

2. Use a fork to mix the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, milk and vegetable oil together in a mug until smooth.

3. Add the blueberries and stir gently. The blueberries should float to the top.

4. Sprinkle on the streusel topping according to taste.

5. Microwave for 1-2 minutes depending on microwave.

6. Enjoy immediately.

A few tips and tricks.

Make sure the butter, flour and sugar are fully combined in the streusel topping and a fine breadcrumb texture. Any lumps of butter will melt and pool leaving your crunchy top soggy.

To measure the butter I found it easier to cut the butter up into little pieces and then fill the tablespoon with the pieces.

I wouldn't recommend adding more than 15 blueberries to each mug muffin. I found 10-15 to be a good muffin to blueberry ratio, any more and the muffin becomes less muffin and more hot, gooey blueberry mess. Not good.

Be careful not to over microwave your muffin as it can become chewy and rubbery. My microwave is 850w and 1 minute 30 was exactly right but you may need to adjust and experiment depending on your own microwave.

I hope you like it as much as I do.

CHOCOLATE NUTELLA MUG CAKES.

2 Minute Microwave Chocolate Nutella Mug Cakes

Chocolate Nutella mug cakes you bake in the microwave in 2 minutes? Yes, please.

Have you tried making a microwave mug cake before? I've made a few of them in my time but none of them have turned out to be as good as this one. It's delicious and moist and has the added bonus of leaving behind only minimal washing up. All you need is a tablespoon, a mug and a fork and you're all set. Of course if you want to be a bit fancier and don't mind the extra dishes you can spray your mug with some non-stick cooking spray first and turn your finished cake out onto a plate.

If you're looking for a quick and easy sweet treat I can recommend giving this one a go.

Ingredients for Chocolate Nutella Mug Cakes

Ingredients needed for Chocolate Nutella Mug Cakes (makes 1 large or 2 small servings depending on the mug).

1 medium egg,

3 tablespoons of semi-skimmed milk,

3 tablespoons of cocoa powder,

4 tablespoons self-raising flour.

How to make Chocolate Nutella Mug Cakes

1. Add the Nutella, sugar, vegetable oil ,egg, milk, cocoa and flour in this order to the mug. If you want to turn your cake out spray some non-stick cooking spray into the mug before adding any ingredients.

2. Whisk with a fork until all the ingredients are combined. The mixture should have the consistency of a thick milkshake.

3. Microwave for around 2 minutes. This will depend on your microwave and how moist you like your cake.

The first time I made this I popped it in the microwave for 1 minute 45 seconds and the cake was still uncooked at the bottom. The next time I microwaved it for 2 minutes and it turned out perfectly. You may need to adjust the time depending on the size of your mug and the power of your microwave.

4. Dust with icing sugar or top with cream and enjoy.

I'm thinking of trying this snickerdoodle mug cake next and maybe this chocolate peanut butter one. They both look so good. I've definitely been bitten by the 2 minute mug cake bug.
