Pop Tart in a Mug - Seriously? This Microwave Mug recipe is a game changer! Breakfast will never be the same again.

Hi Bold Bakers!

A Pop Tart is something that is normally cooked in a toaster BUT a Pop Tart in a Mug is a whole other wonderful thing. You mix it in a mug and cook it in the microwave! Yes, microwave.

Am I crazy? YES, crazy like a Fox! I loved Pop Tarts growing up. The whole idea of pastry filled with jam and frosting on top was genius to me. Also it was food that was very “American” and living in Ireland, America was the fanciest place I knew.

Just because they started in a toaster doesn’t mean we can’t change things up and pop them into the microwave!

If a Pop Tart in a Mug isn’t enough then how about my brand new Mugrito! It’s a Breakfast Burrito all mixed and cooked in the one mug. It’s perfect for kids and college students trying to cook a whole meal easily for themselves.

If oats are what float your boat(s), then you are going to want to try my Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal. It is a bowl of hot Oatmeal that tastes just like a Cinnamon Roll: 2 breakfast in 1, minus a few calories.

Author: Gemma Stafford
Servings: 1 serving

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon (½ oz/15g) butter, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon icing sugar
  • 2 tablespoon milk
  • 4 tablespoon all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon strawberry jam
  • Icing
  • Sprinkles

Instructions

  • In a microwavable mug mix the butter and sugar together.
  • Stir in flour and milk and mix until all ingredients are fully combined.
  • Make a well in the batter and spoon in the jam. Gently smooth the batter over the jam so there is none peeking out.
  • Microwave for 45-60 seconds, or until firm to the touch. (My microwave is 1200 Watts so your cook time may vary depending on your wattage)
  • Set it aside to cool. Spoon over some icing and then of course, decorate it with sprinkles!

This was delicious! I used 1/2 Tbsp confectioners sugar and I used chocolate chips instead of strawberry jam. My picky 5 year old LOVED it!! I have yet to make a recipe of yours I didn’t like!!!

Hi, I was wondering if you could double the recipe for larger mugs?

I LOOOVE this recipe! It was SO tasty! I put mini chocolate chips on top and WOW! I got to tell you, I’m making this every DAY! 😉 I love your mug meals! They’re very tasty, and really great if I’m in the mood for something sweet, but don’t want a whole batch of cookies or the rest of a cake tempting me all day. 🙂 Thanks for these recipes!

Hi Gemma,
Can you make momofuku milk bar birthday cake in a mug and birthday cake crumbs in microwave which goes into this birthday cake? Can you also make brownie brittle in a microwave?

I forgot to ask you that can I use milk chocolate in your mug pudding and mug lava cake recipe because the bittersweet, semisweet and unsweetened chocolates are unavailable and milk chocolate is my favourite.

Hi Gemma,
Can I stuff my mug pop tart with any other thing like the filling you made in your pop tart video and if I want to make a savoury pop tart in a mug can I skip icing sugar?
