Microwave Mug Blondie Thee perfect single serve dessert that can be made in less than 5 minutes in the microwave

Hi Bold Bakers!

Blondies are by far one the most popular baked goods around. For those of you who don’t know, a Blondie is like a brownie but without the chocolate. The result is a thick, moist and dense texture with a sweet caramel-like flavor. Well, now instead of taking 30-40 minutes to bake yourself a sheet of Blondies, you can make one in the microwave in just minutes! My Microwave Mug Blondie is the perfect single-serving treat. The best part is this baby can be made ahead and kept in the fridge, or simply warmed up for an after dinner treat or midnight snack.

I’m a strong believer in treating myself to something special every now and again. The trouble is it’s tough when sometimes you just want one slice of cake or one cookie but to get there you have to make an entire batch. This Make Ahead Microwave Mug Blondie is the perfect solution. Knowing I have dessert waiting for me at home really does bring me great comfort.

To prepare this Make Ahead Mug Blondie, I combine simple ingredients like flour, brown sugar, vanilla and butter. With the addition of chopped caramel candies and white chocolate chips, this Microwave Mug Blondie is perfection. I cover this up and pop it in the fridge so next time I need a sweet treat I know exactly where to go. All it takes is 1 minute in the microwave and before you know it, you have yourself the perfect little Microwave Mug Blondie. Just for you and in just minutes…who could resist?

Hi there Gemma, this recipe is very delicious! Do you have any mug dessert recipes that I could have the dry mix in like a quart mason jar and when I’m ready I can put like 3 tbsp (or whatever) of the dry mix in my mug with however much liquid? Hopefully that makes sense.

I’ve been following Bigger Bolder Baking now for a while but this is the first recipe I’ve tried. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised!!!!!! I microwaved for a minute and 15 for fear I would over cook it (ahem, I have experience in over baking mug cakes!!!) and it was perfect! I didnt have any mix ins to add which was fine – this really was an amazing cake!!! And now my daughter is begging for me to make her one – always a good sign!

Thank you so much for these mug desserts, sometimes I just crave something sweet and yummy but want to make it quickly…this is just what I wanted! I split the batter between two cups and they came out wonderful-in taste and appearance!
My sister wasn’t hungry so I ended up eating both of the blondies, hehe!

Hi Gemma, I’ve tried many microwave recipes of yours and most of ’em actually turned out very tasty. Mug Blondie was yum too. Would you mind trying apple pie in a microwave? I’d absolutely love that.
Thank you ???? I appreciate your work

I didn’t have brown sugar so I replaced it with white. But it came out amazing. Absolutely loved it. By far the best one. My birthday I coming up in 2 days and I want to make it for 4 people. Can you please tell me how much time it will take to microwave if I make it in one big bowl (quadruple the amount of everything) rather then 4 separate mugs?

Gemma, I have tried so many of your recipes and love them all. I have been adding the ones I tried to my recipe book. Is there an downloadable ebook I can get with all of your micro-recipes?
Thanks!

Hi Gemma, I have been having your mug apple cake for breakfast for a couple of days now and I love it. Today I decided to go for this blondie cake instead and it turned out amazing! I recently became lactose intolerant so I had to switch the butter to Olive oil, the milk to soy milk, omitted the white chocolate and caramel then topped it with vegan icing. Heaven in my mouth! I am sure that the original recipe is even better but I am happy that with all of these substitutions, I still got an amazing result. Thanks… Read more »
