  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • ½ tablespoon (1/4oz/ 9g) butter, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons milk (or buttermilk)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon corn , frozen & defrosted

  1. In a microwavable mug, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  2. Using your fork, incorporate the cubed butter into the dry ingredients. When done it will resemble fine breadcrumbs.
  3. Stir in the milk, maple syrup, bacon, corn, and cheese until your mix forms a batter.
  4. Microwave for roughly 1 minute (this timing is based on my 1200W microwave so yours might vary)
  5. Top with additional bacon, cheese, corn and chives, enjoy warm!

Recipe Notes

Cooking time will vary greatly depending on your microwave and the width and depth of the mug. I doubled the recipe to use in my 14 oz mug, so this recipe will work well in a 7 oz mug.

Always keep a close eye on your mug while in the microwave so it doesn’t overcook.

Add in all the milk. It will make a wet batter but will give your mug muffin the best result.
