  • Oreo

Use the classic Oreo flavor for this recipe. However, if you want to try the other Oreo flavors, go ahead.

  • Milk

We’ll need whole milk for this recipe because skimmed or non-fat milk is too boring for it. The whole milk also works its magic to make a nice cakey texture for the mug cake.

Tips and Tricks

  • Microwave the mug on a plate.

You’ll never know when your cake mixture might overflow while microwaving. You’d much rather clean the plate than the entire microwave.

  • Start microwaving for 1 minute and add 10 seconds contineously.

  • Use a microwave safe mug.

Remember to use a microwave-safe mug. You don’t want anything breaking.
