Hi Bold Bakers!

Is there any flavor more Christmassy than gingerbread? My Gingerbread Mug Cookies will get you right into the holiday mood. I am all about big and bold desserts that are made for sharing. I have also been called the queen of microwave mug creations, so this recipe is right up my alley, and yours too I think!

My Gingerbread Mug Cookies are so satisfying and ready to eat in minutes. Usually gingerbread cookies are cut into cute shapes like my Homemade Gingerbread Men, and of course made into houses for decorating like my Gingerbread House Log Cabin. I love all of these fun traditions but I find they often go to waste once decorated with frosting and extra bits and bobs. And they are rarely eaten, which is a shame.

These Gingerbread Mug Cookies have all the ingredients of classic gingerbread. They are loaded with aromatic ground ginger and cinnamon, giving it a deep brown color, depending on the sugar you use, and a rich spicy flavor. Micro-bake them for just 1 minute in the microwave and they are done. They are so simple and perfect for whipping up for your next holiday celebration. I top these holiday wonders with a bit of cinnamon sugar to compliment all the spice, and vanilla ice cream is a must, along with an adorable piece of edible holly. Your family and friends will be lining up for these easy to prepare, made to share, Gingerbread Mug Cookies for Two!

This Gingerbread cookie was delicious! I bought small 7,5 oz ramekins for mug recipes and it makes the result so appealing. Another winner!

I tried to make this for 1 person, I replaced butter with about 1tbs oil (olive oil mixed with something, not sure what-it’s in chinese so I can’t read it, but maybe sunflower oil), I replaced ginger spice with allspice (don’t have ginger spice). The taste was good, like french toast, but the consistency was very spongy after about 2min of cooking. I have a 800w microwave with no turn table. My brown sugar was very chunky and moist so the batter would not mix properly, so I am not sure if this was the problem or too much oil,… Read more »

Omg Gemma I just made this (I’m eating it right now lol) and it turned out AMAZING! I can’t believe I made this, it tastes just like a traditionally made gingerbread and was done in no time!
I have also tried your nutella brownie in a mug and it drove me CRAZY.
Thank you for everything, Gemma❤
