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!

Hi Gemma I am still in 7th grade but I love cooking. I’ve made breads and fresh pasta and loads of other things and since I’m in school I need quick breakfast options that’s why I came here. We don’t normally have pop-tarts in Pakistan but I’ve had them once and I fell in love. The problem is that butter is too expensive so I can’t really make them on my own. I will try this tomorrow (if my mother lets me) and tell you once I have.( BTW the tab in the left makes it kind of difficult to… Read more »

Think my mug to big and it definitely has to be jam, not a spreadable type jelly but it was still yummy 😋

Hey! I just made this Strawberry Pop tart! I added to much jam thinking it wouldn’t hurt but it become very soggy and went everywhere! I am very excited to try this recipe again, (and eat it!)

Yummy! I used wild blueberry jam instead of strawberry and it was delicious. I also whipped heavy cream and made whipped cream instead of using store bought icing. Mmmmm. It was a little undercooked in places but I think that is my fault not the recipes.

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!
