Learn how to make my Microwave Egg Mug Muffin, a simple breakfast packed with protein to fuel your day that you can make in minutes!
Author: Gemma Stafford
Servings: 1

Ingredients

  • 5 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • teaspoon baking soda*
  • teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil or melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons egg
  • 1 tablespoon grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon scallions , chopped
  • 1 small egg

Instructions

  • In a large microwave safe mug mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt with a fork.
  • Add in the milk, oil, egg, cheese and scallions and mix together until just combined.
  • Make a well in the center of the batter with a spoon and crack in your egg into the center.
  • Spoon the batter from the sides over the top of the egg. It’s a little tricky but you’ll get it.
  • Place in the microwave and cook for 50 seconds- 1 minute 10 seconds. you will know when it is cooked because it will be firm to the touch on top . (Cooking time is based on my 1200W microwave so your timing might vary) Always keep a close eye on your mug while in the microwave so it doesn’t over flow or over cook.
  • Enjoy while warm

Recipe Notes

9 SmartPoints
8 PointsPlus
⅛ teaspoon is simply a ½ of a ¼ teaspoon
Each egg is roughly 4 tablespoons. Whisk up 1 eggs and take away 2 tablespoons
Cooking time will vary greatly depending on your microwave and the width and depth of the mug
You can bake them in the oven at 350F (180C) for roughly 10-12 minutes. However every mug is different so I advise checking on it after 10 and then make a call.

Hi Gemma! I’ve made this recipe twice. First time I followed the recipe exactly. I found it a little bland, and I seem to be spoon-challenged, because the yolk broke and the egg ended up getting mostly mixed into the batter. Second time, I made the batter in a small bowl then put about 3 Tablespoon of the batter into the mug. Made a small well, cracked in the egg, added a little sausage I had cooked up, then covered with the rest of the batter. Cooked as directed, and that method solved both problems. Sausage added a lot of… Read more »

I am a fairly new follower to your channel, and I’ve tried out some of your recipes (mainly the microwaveable snacks haha). I though I’d give this one a shot, my first problem was that the dough was too dry after adding the melted butter (I don’t have any vegetable oil). So I melted some more and it became wet enough for me to do the crater and add the egg in the middle. However, it wasn’t until I’ve already cooked it in the microwave that I realized I completely forgot to add the milk! That explains a lot of… Read more »

Hi Gemma, I think I came in a year later. 😉 I tried this recipe today and it turned out to be horrible. I didn’t have scallions. So, I cut a piece of onion and added some green chili (since I like eggs a bit hot/spicy). First the flour was too much, so the batter was too dry, almost like the batter for making a tortilla. So, I broke in another egg and two more table spoons of milk. Then the batter went a bit thin. However, I tried to make a well, didn’t do very good there. However, I… Read more »

I tried this recipe for lunch and it is one of my new favorite! Easy to make, incredible taste and you can even pop it out of the mug easily!

Thank you a lot for this recipe. I have so much fun making meals in a mug!

Dear Gemma, I absolutely love your show and the Mug Meals you teach us to make. They are outstanding. I cannot pick out one as a favorite as they all taste great and so simple to make; and fast. Thank you so much. You are a joy to watch and listen to. Sincerely, Barbara However, I think whomever printed your nutritional facts chose the wrong one. There is just no way there is 1,141 mg of sodium, etc, etc in your recipe. At first it cracked me up, because, I knew it was wrong, but them I thought about other… Read more »
