Do you have a craving for a muffin but you don’t have time to bake a batch? This single serving DIY mug muffin made in the microwave is perfect. It’s so quick and easy. You can also change the flavor very easily by adding cocoa powder, lemon extract or almonds. I might try using applesauce instead of butter for a healthier version. Thanks Budget Bytes for the great recipe.
The idea for this awesome little recipe came courtesy of Annie, who wrote to tell me that every since she tried The “One” Chocolate Mug Cake, she’s been trying all sorts of mug cakes! Her favorite? Mug pancakes! Annie uses pre-made pancake mix and blueberries to make single serving pancakes! Genius!
I didn’t have any pancake mix on hand so I set out to just make my own. While I was playing chemist in the kitchen, the term “mug muffin” popped into my head and made me giggle so much that I decided I had to use that name for the recipe. …and I guess it’s a little more like a blueberry muffin than a pancake anyway, although I did top it with maple syrup.
I also decided that I need to start calling people “mug muffin,” but I can’t decide if it’s going to be used as a term of endearment or an insult. Feel free to weigh-in in the comments below. I could use the help.
Anyway, mug muffins, let’s get to it!
