This Lazy Oreo Mug Cake Will Satisfy Your Decadent Dessert Cravings In 5 Minutes

Milk and Oreos go hand in hand as a snack, but they’re even tastier when combined into a mug cake. It’s the perfect warm, gooey, decadent treat. The good news is that it takes all of 5 minutes to make it. Once you try it, you’ll never go back to simply dunking the cookies in milk. Here’s how to make the mug cake, along with a few ways to customize it to your flavor preferences. 

  • • 5 Oreo cookies 
  •  • ½ cup milk 
  • • Place 4 cookies in a small mug and crush with a fork or the end of a rolling pin until it resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk and stir until cake batter-like mixture forms. 
  • • Place mug in the microwave and cook for 1 minute. Cake should be slightly risen, and a toothpick should come out clean after being inserted. If cake isn’t done, microwave at 10-second intervals until fully cooked. 
  • • Top with remaining cookie and enjoy immediately. Since this is a treat that’s just for you, it’s easy to upgrade it to include what you like. 
Here are some suggestions: 

  • • Swap Oreos for Golden Oreos if you prefer a vanilla version of the mug cake. 
  • • Place a small handful of chocolate chips in the middle of the cake before microwaving for added richness and a gooey center. 
  • • Pour warm fudge or caramel sauce over the cooked mug cake and an extra touch of decadence. 
  • • A pinch of coarse sea salt can turn your mug cake into a sweet and salty wonder. 
  • • To balance the mug cake’s sugary flavor, top it with fresh berries. 
  • • For a nutty flavor and added crunch, sprinkle your favorite crushed nuts on top of the mug cake. 
  • • Place a dollop of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream onto the warm mug cake for a touch of creaminess.
