3 Ingredient Mug Cake

COOKIES: Oreos are the perfect blend of chocolatey crunch, but other cookies can be used as well. Peanut butter, shortbread, or chocolate chip make yummy mug cakes, too.

MILK: Whole milk or heavy whipping cream will give mug cakes that creamy, melt-in-your-mouth flavor and feel. Oat milk is the closest substitute for whole milk in a non-dairy dessert. A dairy free mug cake is a kid’s best friend when it comes time for birthday parties! 

How to Make Oreo Mug Cake

Here’s how to make this popular microwave TikTok Oreo mug cake:

  1. Blend cookies in a food processor until fine crumbs form.
  2. Stir crumbs, milk, & baking powder in a microwave-safe mug.
  3. Heat until baked (per recipe below). Cake will rise as it cools. NOTE: Microwave times will vary.

Cake Topping Ideas

Mug cakes are perfect for toppings and mix-ins. A dollop of whipped cream or a drizzle of chocolate, caramel, or butterscotch syrup adds extra sweetness. Top with these decadent chocolate truffles, or chocolate covered strawberries. Mix-ins like chopped nuts, diced dried fruit, even mini-chocolate, or butter chips can be added!

Time Saving Tips

  • For party prep, blend a whole bag of Oreo cookies at once and divide them into small zippered bags.
  • Or, let kids crush their own cookies by placing 4 cookies in each bag and let the kids crush their own.
  • Try different flavored cookies like peanut butter cookies, teddy grahams or use chocolate chip cookies to make a Chocolate Chip Cookie Mug Cake.

  • 4 Oreo cookies
  • 3 Tablespoons whole milk
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder


  • Blend 4 Oreo cookies in a food processor until fine crumbs form.
  • Combine Oreo crumbs, milk, and baking powder in a microwave safe mug (6 or 8 oz mug)
  • Microwave for 1 minute, then add 10 seconds if still needed or until a cake tester comes out clean.
  • Let cool for 2 to 3 minutes.


You can use your favorite flavor of oreo, mint, peanut butter, golden, etc.
You can top these with powdered sugar, whipped cream, ice cream, fruit, or your favorite topping.
Cooking times may take more or less time based on your microwave’s strength, start at one minute and add 10 seconds at a time until cooked. 1 minute and 10 seconds working perfectly for me.
4 Oreos equals 1.6 ounces of crumbs.
Double stuf Oreos DO NOT work.
This cake is dense, but still has a fine crumb - not mushy. It’s not as sweet as you might think it would be, so toppings are a great way to add additional sweetness.
