    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on May 28, 2015 at 9:37 pm

      Hi Wanda! Thank you so much. Those are all great ideas. I will add them to my list. Thank you for watching my baking videos! 🙂

  6. Jacklynn on May 29, 2015 at 7:12 pm

    I love your youtube channel and am so happy you have a website now! These microwave cookies are my family’s absolute favorite. Thank you so much for the recipes!

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on May 30, 2015 at 3:12 pm

      Hi Jacklynn! I’m so glad you enjoyed them. Which one is your favorite? Thank you for watching! 🙂

      • jacklynn on May 30, 2015 at 8:33 pm

        We each have our favorite! I make the chocolate chip for me, peanut butter for my dad and oatmeal raisin for my mom, but all are so delicious. I am making your cinnamon roll dough right now to have fresh rolls for breakfast in the a.m 🙂

        • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on May 31, 2015 at 7:58 pm

          That’s so great, Jacklynn! Let me know how the Cinnamon Rolls go for you.

          • jacklynn on May 31, 2015 at 10:02 pm

            I’m not sure how but I definitely did something wrong with the dough. It was really hard to roll after I put on the spread and came out messy. I did what I could and baked them anyway, it turned into like a giant pull apart roll? Lol it had an absolutely delicious flavor despite being so messy 🙂



          • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on June 7, 2015 at 7:40 pm

            Hi Jacklynn,

            Are you talking about the cinnamon rolls? I don’t think you did anything roll.
            Can you tell me, dod you use cups, ounces or grams to make your dough?

            Thanks,
            Gemma.



  7. Hanina Huda on June 4, 2015 at 8:48 am

    Hi Gemma! I just want to ask if I can just double the recipe and cook it once, so I have more? To also save time?

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on June 24, 2015 at 6:44 pm

      for sure you can. Use a bigger bowl or dish and just keep an eye so it doesn’t over cook. 🙂

  13. Becky on June 27, 2015 at 1:00 pm

  15. girlvan88 on July 2, 2015 at 3:05 am

    Hi Gemma! I wanna talk about the Homemade (baked) Donuts, if you say we can make the dough the day before and bake it for the next day, then where and how do you store that?

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 2, 2015 at 8:12 pm

  16. Christie on July 8, 2015 at 12:26 pm

  18. Jazz on July 14, 2015 at 10:44 pm

    With the peanut butter one I have 2 questions

    1. Would more white sugar work instead of white and brown.
    2. Would Nutella work, I’m just curious.

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 18, 2015 at 9:02 pm

      Hi Jazz, you can use white sugar no problem, and yes Nutella would work too 🙂

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 18, 2015 at 5:31 pm

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 26, 2015 at 9:12 pm

      More no machine ice cream? I have an ice cream recipe section on my website with tons of ice cream 🙂

  23. Anna Paterson on July 27, 2015 at 3:48 am

    A lemon one would definitely be good, especially with lemon curd. And more dairy free recipes would be great as my dad is dairy free. My lil bro has started making them for himself cause he loves them lol. And a plain choc one would be great, wityh no banana or anything…. And apricot would be delicious 🙂 Aslo, do you no any good apricot muffin recipes? thanks

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 29, 2015 at 12:21 pm

      Thanks for all your requests, Anna. I will add them to my list 🙂

  24. Giulia on August 3, 2015 at 2:23 pm

    thanks to your recipes I can cook so many sweets to my boyfriend that has just bought house and it doesn’t have all the necessary tools for the pastry. The mug cakes I have understood that I can cook her to the oven but these mug cookies I can also cook them in the oven? (my boyfriend doesn’t have the microwave ovens).

    PS: I LOVE YOUR RECIPES *_*

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on August 6, 2015 at 12:16 pm

      Thanks for your comment, Giulia. I think if you use the oven it will be 6-8 minutes at 350oF. Be sure to keep an eye on it. Good luck and let me know how it turns out 🙂

  25. Alejandra on August 4, 2015 at 5:43 pm

    Hello I was wondering if instead of a mug we could use a small mason jar?

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on August 6, 2015 at 12:31 pm

      Thanks for your question, Alejandra. You can use any microwave safe dish for this recipe. Hope this helps 🙂

    Hey Gemma , I am your biggest fan , I love your recipes. , but I have a small problem, most of your recipes contain egg , but I’m a pure vegetarian ,so I’ll be the most pleased if you can come up with more eggless recipes…

      Sure. I think it will be 350oF for 6-8 minutes. Be sure to keep an eye on your mug cakes, every oven is different. Hope this helps 🙂

  30. Funmi on September 7, 2015 at 4:33 am

    Hello Gemma, I love you so much, your work is amazing, but can I make the mug cake and cookies with a toaster oven, because I don’t have a microwave. I’ll love to get your reply soon. Thank you.

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford on September 10, 2015 at 1:42 pm

      Thank you for your comment! I haven’t tried that, but I think it will be 350oF for 6-8 minutes, or until your mug cake looks done. Every oven and mug is different, so be sure to use your best judgement and keep and eye on it. Hope this helps 🙂

    In my FACS (Family and Consumer Sciences) class, we get to bake and cook. I was assigned an extra credit cooking assignment, and I chose your Chocolate Chip Mug Cookie. It was a little bit on the cakey side, but it was very good! I also made one for my babysitter and she loved it. I was amazed that I could make a cookie that delicious in the microwave, and only in a few minutes too! I will definitely make this cookie again! 🙂

    For the chocolate chip cookie, what can I use instead of dark brown sugar? I only have white so can I use this, or do I have to have the dark brown sugar? Love all your baking x

      you can sugar white sugar Abbie, no problem. If you do lots of my recipes i would by some to have because it makes your baking more caramelllyy. 🙂

    Hi Gemma! You’re amazing plus your recipes are to die for! I was just wondering, since I’m a vegetarian, what can I replace the egg yolks with?

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on December 18, 2015 at 10:00 am

      Thanks so much Sim for your kind message. UYOu can replace the same amount of egg with apple sauce or whipped silken tofu 🙂

  46. Regina on January 17, 2016 at 8:29 am

    Gemma your recipes are gorgeous but could you make more mug recipes please!

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford on January 19, 2016 at 6:54 pm

    Re: Oatmeal raisin cookie recipe … could an egg yolk replace the applesauce?

      Hi Maryann,
      I think you could try this, it should be good,
      Gemma 🙂

    do you need brown sugar for the cookie recipe?

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford on February 23, 2016 at 3:21 pm

      Yes, you will need some kind of sugar for these cookies. Thanks so much for visiting my website 🙂

  49. Maryann on February 23, 2016 at 3:39 pm

    Can’t wait to try these cookies … but can I use an egg yolk instead of applesauce in the oatmeal raisin cookie?

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford on February 24, 2016 at 12:23 pm

      Hi Maryann, yes you can, check out the other mug cakes though to get the balance right,
      Gemma

    Can I use only white sugar for the peanut butter cookies?

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford on February 24, 2016 at 12:22 pm

      Hi Tova, no, you can use brown sugar, which will give a darker finish, but not a dark brown one as it will change the flavor.
      Happy baking, Gemma

  51. Chinu on March 6, 2016 at 7:50 am

    Hi Gemma ? loved your oatmeal and raisin cookie. Can I use whole egg instead of Apple puree

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford on March 7, 2016 at 7:20 am

      Hi Chinu, take a look at the other cookie recipes, you just use egg yolk, it should work out fine. I include this recipe for all of my no egg followers,
      Gemma 🙂

  52. Koala kangaroo on March 8, 2016 at 4:04 pm

    For the oatmeal raisin cookie can you use quickcooking oats instead of rolled oats also I want know can you use all purpose flour instead of oat flour? Also how much egg would you use.

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford on March 9, 2016 at 3:25 am

      Hi Koala,
      I did not try this combination! however it should be ok, the quick cook oats are often finer in quality, but should work. The all purpose flour should work too, and the egg should stay the same. So try it out! it will be worth it,
      Gemma 🙂

  53. L on March 15, 2016 at 2:16 am

    If using white sugar, I feel like i got somewhat better results by first microwaving the butter or oil with the sugar to caramelize it somewhat. But yes definitely a great idea to have brown sugar on hand! It does make such a big difference to the flavour.

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford on March 16, 2016 at 3:14 pm

      Hi there,
      Yes, that sounds delicious. Be cautious however when heating sugar and oil in the microwave, both of these overheat really quickly, and you can have a fire!
      Gemma 🙂

  54. Charlotte on March 19, 2016 at 12:44 pm

    OMG ! I love your ideas and recipes, you’re amazing ! I’m looking forward to taste this peanut butter cookie, yummy !

      Hi Charlotte,
      Thank you for your kind words and for being in touch,
      Gemma 🙂

    For the flour I used oat flour I made from oats I use in my smoothies and it came out really good. It’s a great snack. I hope you will do more dinner mug recipes soon.

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on April 4, 2016 at 9:16 am

      Hi Nanny,
      Thank you for telling me this, my followers always ask about substituting GF flours, it is nice to know they work.
      Stay tuned for lots more mug recipes,
      Gemma 🙂

      • Nanny on April 5, 2016 at 1:41 pm

        Oat flour can be made or you can buy it pre-made. The brand I use for the oats and making the oat flour is here: http://www.bobsredmill.com/ for those who want the information. You may add it to your website. I buy the gluten free old fashioned rolled oats or Gluten free Extra thick rolled oats to make the flour and use in my smoothies. Either one works great. I use a flat blade in the magic bullet and when the oats turned to flour I store it in a air tight container. I haven’t tried all of your baking mug recipes with it yet. I’ll let you know how they are when I try them.

        • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on April 6, 2016 at 10:16 pm

          I also use bob’s also. I haven’t a bullet but a little mini cuisinart. Let me know how you get on with the mugs because I often use it in the mug cakes 🙂

      Hi Haya,

      So sorry for my late reply. We need to approve pictures before they go up just to make sure that all the images are appropriate. That might take us 24 hours. Can you check again if your picture has been posted? I feel like it has to have been now.

      Let me know,
      Gemma.

    hi gemma,
    could i use cocoa powder instead of chocolate chips and if yes how much?

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on September 17, 2016 at 2:37 am

      This will make it a chocolate cookie – so you need to add about 1 teaspoon of sieved cocoa – experiment with this 🙂

  59. sarasuleman on December 28, 2016 at 8:33 pm

    what can i use instead of egg yolk

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on January 14, 2017 at 11:38 am

      hi there, there is an egg substitute chart here, you can choose one of these. greek yogurt would be a good choice, depending on the recipe,
      Gemma 🙂
