Hi Bold Bakers!

Who else out there loves a good old Pecan Pie? Golden crust, toasty pecans and that sweet maple syrup infused filling. What could be better? Pecan Pie is one of my top, all time favorite pies. This is exactly why I created this Microwave Mug Pecan Pie, to fix all your Pecan Pie cravings. Try this amazing recipe for Microwave Mug Pecan Pie, ready in minutes, just for you!

This Microwave Mug Pecan Pie might even be better than the real deal. Why? Well this baby can be made and cooked in under 10 minutes and that is no exaggeration! To put this sweet mug pie together I simply fill the bottom of a microwavable mug with crushed graham crackers, followed by a mixture of brown sugar, toasted pecans, egg and maple syrup. Traditional pecan pie can have corn syrup or corn starch to thicken it, while this Microwave Mug Pecan Pie is simply thickened by the sticky maple syrup and the egg. After 1 minute in the microwave this mug pie is ready to be devoured.

Author: Gemma Stafford
Servings: 2 pies

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ tablespoon (45g/1 ½ oz) butter, melted
  • cup (85g/3 ¼ oz) brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons (41g/1 ½ oz) maple syrup/ honey or golden syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • cup (60g/2oz) pecans, chopped and toasted
  • 2 small cookies , crushed into 2 tablespoons of crumbs (graham crackers, digestives, gingersnap cookies)
  • extra pecans for decoration
  • (Makes enough for two pies).

Instructions

  • In a small bowl whisk together the butter, brown sugar, maple syrup, pecans, vanilla and salt. Whisk in egg.
  • In a microwavable mug add in your crushed cookies to the bottom.
  • Pour in your pecan pie mix. Microwave roughly for 1- ½ minutes, checking every 30 seconds. The mix will thicken and appear jelly like, but it will set as it cools. Cooking time is based on my 1200W microwave so your timing might vary.
  • Carefully remove the mug from the microwave. Let it stand for a couple minutes to cool. Serve with whipped cream and Enjoy otherwise place in the fridge for up to 24 hours.
  • *notes: Make the pecan pie mix 24 hours in advance.
  • Once microwaved you can place in the fridge once cooled for up to 2 days. Cooking time will vary greatly depending on your microwave and the width and depth of the mug.

Hi Gemma, greetings from Malaysia! 🙂

I’ve discovered BBB during the lockdown, and your recipes and videos are awesome!! 🙂 I’ve never been a baker, but attempted your Best Ever Pecan Pie for my sis b’day – it was super yummy and everyone enjoyed it! I’ve now got leftover pecan and cream, thought it’d be perfect for this mug pie. How do I incorporate the cream into this recipe?

Love this recipe! I had left over pie crust (your recipe, too) trimmings so I made a mini pie. I baked it in the oven but finished it in the microwave for half a minute for the filling to cook through 🙂 It was yum!!

Well, I did the SMART POINT entry. Using Swerve and Walden Farms (sugarfree products) I came up with these figures:

42 SMART POINTS
So, if you’re following WW,
You’ve gone over 19 SP’s just on dessert.

I’m looking forward to trying this recipe. I’m wondering if adding a teaspoon of almond flour would be a good idea?
