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

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!

Thanks for explaining your recipes in such simple terms. Usually the extent of my baking is those mixes that you can buy in a box, so my experience and knowledge of baking is limited. Today I tried the Cheddar herb biscuit and was pleasantly surprised at how simple it was to make. It took much longer than your time suggested, but that is to be expected because my mug was bigger and the microwave that I used was less powerful than yours. Next time I might add a little more cheddar and a little less oregano, but I think it’s… Read more »
