Gingerbread Mug Cookies for Two

Save Recipe

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!

    What can be used instead of eggs yolks?

    • Gemma Stafford on December 14, 2017 at 6:09 am

      Hi Pati,
      Condensed milk, flax egg or Greek yogurt should do it for you, try with your usual substitute, see how it works, and experiment a little.
      One Bold Baker told me that condensed milk worked well for her. Thank you for being here with us,
      Gemma 🙂

    How can this be made vegan?

    • Gemma Stafford on December 14, 2017 at 6:14 am

      Hi Pati,

      2 tablespoons (1oz/30g) margarine or 1 1/2 tablespoons of a light vegetable oil.
      4 tablespoons sugar (Brown or white)
      2 flax eggs (or use condensed milk or Greek yogurt)
      6 tablespoons all purpose flour
      1 pinch salt
      ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
      ⅛ teaspoon ginger
      This is worth trying, I have been told by another Bold Baker that the condensed milk worked well for her.
      If you use a flax egg, it is oily, so you may wish to reduce the margarine/oil.
      Experiment with this, you can let us know how you get on with it,
      Gemma 🙂

    Gemma, if I were to bake this in the oven, what should the temperature and timing be?

    • Gemma Stafford on December 8, 2017 at 4:29 am

      Hi there,
      Bake in a muffin pan, 180C/350F for about 15 mins, in a preheated oven.
      Happy baking,
      Gemma 🙂
