Make my Microwave Cheddar & Herb Biscuit in a mug, which makes a lovely snack or addition to any meal. It only takes minutes to microbake!
Author: Gemma Stafford
Servings: 1

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • teaspoon salt
  • ½ tablespoon (1/4 oz/ 9g) cold butter, cubed
  • tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoon cheddar cheese , grated
  • 2 teaspoons chopped herbs (parsley/ oregano/sage etc)

Instructions

  • In a microwavable mug, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Using a fork rub in the cubed butter into the dry ingredients. When done it will resemble fine breadcrumbs.
  • Stir in the milk, cheese and herbs until your mix forms a batter.
  • Microwave for roughly 45 seconds - 1 minute. (this timing is based on my 1200W microwave so yours might vary)
  • Enjoy warm!

Recipe Notes

Cooking time will vary greatly depending on your microwave and the width and depth of the mug. The mugs I use are small, roughly 6oz (¾ /1 cup)
Always keep a close eye on your mug while in the microwave so it doesn’t over flow or over cook.

Well DoNE!! I love your site. the recipes are a GREAT jumping of point for me. I have found that I can Double your mug recipes and bake them in one of our cereal bowls. In my micro I cook them for 2min15 sec and then let them sit for about 2 more minutes for the bakes. Works very well for two of us, and I don’t have to do the recipe twice! The herb biscuit is amazing, but I never would have thought of using it for pot pie–and how about a sweet version for peach pie/cobbler. Since it… Read more »

Had 1 serving of sausage gravy left so just made a plain one. Then added a scrambled egg in a mug and your biscuit in a mug. Tasted great, had a good hardly breakfast in just a few minutes. Thumbs up

This is my second ever mug meal recipe. I accidentally added 1 TABLESPOON of oregano 😭 instead of the 2 TEASPOONS required. Although this came out VERY VERY HERBY I can tell that when I add the correct measurements it will be fantastic. I’m going to try to add sausage and make it a breakfast biscuit!

I’m on a medical diet called LID. I can’t even say how happy I am to find this site. Most of all your mug ideas can quickly be adapted to my diet so I can eat real food. Last time I was on this diet I ate nothing but fruit and veg I had no idea how to eat. Ur an amazing blessing I thank you

Thank you for your recipes. I am allergic to egg and nuts and am cooking as a student with a combi microwave!
Does this recipe work if you use plain flour instead of all-purpose flour? How about marg instead of butter?

This is fabulous!!! I’m on WW and I’ve gotten this down to 4 points on the Freestyle program. I leave out the cheese and herbs. I use either 1 t of olive oil or Brummel and Brown instead of butter. I use whole wheat flour. My favorite is sprouted whole wheat. I make breakfast sandwiches with egg, meat, and cheese or sometimes just Polaners jelly. I cannot be trusted with a whole pan so this is such a blessing for me!! Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe!!!

Beautiful recipe Gemma! I never expected I would be able to make such a dish in the microwave. The biscuit was soft, buttery, cheesy and just perfect. Thank you!
