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 saw this recipe and immediately went to my kitchen to try it out. I’m 14 and I’ve made my fair share of blondies, as they’re my favorite dessert. So I tried this out but used brown butter in place of the melted butter and ohmylanta these were out of this world good. I didn’t have any caramel candies so I replaced it with white chocolate and drizzled some of your fantastic salted caramel sauce on top. Thank you for this amazing cheat day treat Gemma 🙂 <3

These mug blondes do not have any eggs, so feel free to underbake them slightly in the microwave. I find that when I follow the cooking instructions to a tee, I overcook the white chocolate morsels and they get a bit chalky. This mug cake is very hot straight out of the microwave and will continue to cook if you let it cool. Would recommend that you cook your mug cake on a slightly lower power for the full time or shorten your time by 10-20 seconds.

Hi Gemma
I’ve never eaten a blondie before 😊 so I’m curious – is it supposed to be a little gooey on the inside? Or does that mean that I undercooked it? How do I know it is ready?
Either way, it tastes great.

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!
