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

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.

I thought I would give the recipe a try, just to explore the possibilities of cooking a meal in a mug. It was breakfast time, and I just said, “Lets do this!”. Eating a mug meal is a different experience. Your brain is looking at it thinking, “That isn’t coffee, what’s breakfast doing in there…” but the egg flavors go well with the cheese and scallion. The purpose of a mug meal is to help you in those moments when you don’t have time. If my wife is hungry, and wants me to pick her up from work, and I… Read more »

Really not a fan of this one (and I really wanted to be!) I tried it twice… adding a little diced veggie dog. The flavour is good, but the muffin part was overcooked on the outside and the egg & dough in the center was undercooked… We choked half of it down and the rest went in the trash 🙁

Perfect and tasty, my egg inside was slightly runny, used 1 min 18 secs at default power 100 (LG microwave), Enjoyed it, was very good, used a Corning Ware soup bowl

Hi Gemma! I just made this recipe, it was the perfect serving size, extremely easy to make and absolutely delicious! Instead of adding cheddar and scallions, I added sundried tomato, mozzarella, and basil.. love how versatile this recipe is! I will definitely be coming back to try your other recipes.. especially the mugnut! Thank you x

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 »
