So let’s see how you can turn Oreos into a cake with this mini Oreo cake recipe.
What’s A 3-Ingredient Oreo Mug Cake?
Oreo mug is an easy dessert, a single-serve cake baked in the microwave.
It tastes like Oreo cream, and it is made from only three ingredients: oreo cookies, milk, and baking powder.
How To Make Oreo Mug Cake With 3 Ingredients
There’s nothing easier than this mug cake recipe.
All you need are:
- Oreo – any Oreo flavors you like work.
- Milk of Choice – We used soy milk, but almond milk or regular milk will do.
- Baking Powder
Step 1: Crush The Oreos
The tricky part of this mug cake with Oreos is to turn the Oreo cookies into a fine crumb.
It should resemble a fine crumb. The best way to do that is to place the Oreo in a food processor or coffee grinder and pulse for 1 minute at high speed.
Of course, if you don’t have a food processor, you can also crunch Oreo with a mortar and pillar.
Another option is to place the Oreos in a zip-lock bag and bang them with a rolling pin.
However, the last two options take quite a while to achieve a fine Oreo flour-like texture.
So I recommend the food processor option if you have one.
Step 2: Stirring All Ingredients
Now, stir in the remaining ingredients in a microwave-safe mug: baking powder and milk of choice.
This Oreo mug batter won’t raise much, so it actually looks cuter in a small ramekin.
You can optionally stir in chocolate chips for extra chocolate flavors!
Step 3: Microwaving
Microwave the Oreo cake for 60 to 90 seconds on high 900W.
The cooking time varies depending on the size of the mug and your desired texture.
You can start with 60 seconds and microwave for an additional 10 seconds at a time until the cake is set on top, still a bit moist in the middle, but not too runny.
You can also stop microwaving earlier for a lava mug cake!
Since it’s just oreo and milk, it’s totally safe to eat this mug cake slightly undercooked if you love its texture more.
Step 4: Cooling
Like for any mug cake recipe, it’s recommended to wait for one minute before digging into it.
It gives the mug cake time to steam out and get all its texture.
This Tiktok Oreo mug cake is already pretty sweet and decadent, but feel free to add some of the below toppings for extra decadence:
- Whipped cream
- Ice cream
- Peanut butter
- Pinch of sea salt to enhance the chocolate flavor
Below are some ideas to swap ingredients in the recipe if you have some allergies to the one listed below.
- Gluten-Free – Regular Oreos contain wheat, but the Double-Stuffed Oreos exist in a gluten-free version. Also, make sure you are using gluten-free baking powder or swap for 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda.
- Dairy-Free – any plant-based milk works in this recipe to make a vegan Oreo mug cake. I recommend coconut milk, soy milk, or oat milk for the best texture.
