This mug cake takes basic pantry ingredients that you probably already have! That means you can whip up this treat anytime you’re craving it.
- All-purpose flour
- Granulated sugar

- Flavorless oil (I like light-tasting olive oil, but you can use coconut oil as well.)
- Vanilla extract
- Oreo cookies
How do you make an Oreo mug cake?
Fortunately, making this dessert is super simple! Just mix together the dry ingredients, then add the wet ingredients and stir to combine. Mix in some crushed Oreos and microwave on high for 2 minutes.
Can this be made vegan?
Absolutely! Just swap out the dairy milk with almond or coconut milk, and make sure to use vegan Oreo cookies (affiliate).
Can this be made gluten free?
Can I bake this in the oven?
I’ve never tried baking it in the oven, but feel free to try. I’d recommend baking it in an large oven-safe ramekin (with a small baking tray underneath in case it overflows) at 350 F for 10 minutes as a good starting point. The mug cake will be done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
How long does it keep?
I’d recommend eating this mug cake on the same day that you make it for the best taste. However, if you can’t finish it all in one sitting, just cover it with plastic wrap and let it stand at room temperature for up to 48 hours.
How to Make
Gather the ingredients. You’ll need all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, milk, oil, vanilla, and Oreos.
Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a 16-ounce mug (affiliate) until well combined.
Add the milk, oil, and vanilla extract.
Mix the batter until it’s well combined, making sure there are no streaks of flour.
Crush 3 Oreo cookies in a sandwich bag. Make sure there are some fine crumbs and a few larger pieces.
Stir the crushed cookies into the batter.
Microwave on high for 2 minutes. You’ll know it’s cooked when a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
Let it cool for about 10 minutes before enjoying.
- Mix the ingredients thoroughly. You don’t want streaks or lumps of unmixed flour.
- Crush the Oreos unevenly. Have mostly fine to medium crumbs, but leave a few larger chunks.
- Let the mug cake cool for at least 10 minutes before eating, as it is extremely hot.
- Want an extra chocolatey version? Use our brownie mug cake recipe and replace the chopped walnuts with crushed Oreos.
