Jelly Donut in a Mug (MugNut) : Move over Cronut, step aside Duffin, there's a new nut in town: a Mugnut to be exact, or a Jelly Donut made in a mug. And it’s INCREDIBLE!

Hi Bold Bakers!

Move over Cronut, step aside Duffin, there’s a new nut in town: a Mugnut to be exact, or a Microwave Jelly Donut made in a mug. We are stepping up our Mug game and taking on the traditional donut at the same time.

This is a donut that can be mixed up in less than five minutes, cooked in one minute with no need for a fryer, and it tastes like a donut!!!! What’s not to love about that?

If you like this recipe you will love my other Microwave Mug Meals like Egg MugMuffin, Mug LasagnaLoaded Baked Potato Soup in a Mug and Chocolate Pudding in a Mug.

And for the first time, you’ll find the nutritional values, calories, and Weight Watchers Points for each Mug Meal with the printable recipes on each of the recipe pages.

A mugnut is a donut, or doughnut, made in entirely in a mug, topped with cinnamon sugar and jelly.

Feeling that 3 o’clock slump? A Mugnut is the perfect pick me up and just tastes 5 minutes from start to finish.

Servings: 1

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons (1oz/30g) Butter
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 Egg yolk
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon Strawberry jam
  • Cinnamon sugar to garnish

Instructions

  • Place butter into a microwavable mug and microwave until just melted. (roughly 20 seconds)
  • Add in the remaining ingredients; mix well with a fork until just combined
  • Once the batter is mixed place the spoonful of jam down into the batter to get a jammy center
  • Microwave for 45 seconds or until it is firm 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 overflow or overcook.
  • Sprinkle some cinnamon sugar on top and enjoy straight away!

Recipe Notes

They can be mixed up in advance for an even speedier meal
Cooking time will vary depending on your microwave and the width and depth of the mug
You can replace the egg with 2 tablespoons of banana or apple sauce.
You can bake them in the oven at 350°F (180°C) for roughly 10-12 minutes. However every mug is different so I advise checking on it after 10 and then make a call.

I’m a chocoholic, so I substituted the cinnamon powder with a little bit of cocoa powder and Nutella instead of the jam. My brother and me loved it so much, it came out wonderful. Thank you so much, Gemma!!

Wow! Yet another brilliant recipe. My growing son eats his mug donut in the car on the way to college! Quite brilliant. We’re in the UK and I’m so glad I found your channel. Thank you 😊

This was really good. Warm, cinnamony, comforting. Honestly, I was really surprised, especially because of my substitutes. Swapped a few ingredients for gluten free and mostly dairy free: gf all purpose flour, coconut palm sugar instead of sugar, (even made a little coconut palm sugar and cinnamon to top), and cashew milk. Butter doesn’t bother me, so I still used that. Will definitely make again.

You need to open a cafe. You could serve mug pizzas or doughnuts. I would go there every week

My only advice is to open a cafe. Everyone would love your food you could serve mug pizza or mugnuts. To be honest I would go there like every weekend for your food.

My daughter and I wanted a treat tonight so I decided to try your mugnut but had to do what I call fudging it, cause I was without some ingredients. I used peanut butter for the butter, applesauce for the egg and baking mix for the flour and baking powder. The flavor was great but was dense and heavy. When I make this again could I use veg. oil for the butter? Should I use less peanut butter than the amount of butter called for because of the consistency difference? I like the peanut butter and jelly flavor but am… Read more »
