Ingredients You’ll Need to Make this Funfetti Mug Cake Recipe
OREOS: This recipe calls for Golden Oreos but if you get a craving for chocolate you can use chocolate Oreos instead. Whatever you choose, just make sure not to grab the Double Stuf Oreos, as they have too much filling and will throw off the texture of the mug cake.
PANTRY ITEMS: All you need from the pantry is granulated sugar, baking powder, and rainbow sprinkles.
MILK: In this recipe, you can use whichever milk you have in the fridge, including soy, almond, or other plant-based milk.
How to Make Funfetti Mug CakeJump to Recipe
STEP 1 Pulse the Oreo cookies in a food processor until they become little crumbs. Pour the crumbs into a 6-ounce or larger mug.
STEP 2 Add the sugar and baking powder to the mug, and stir everything together with a fork. Pour in the milk, stir, and then stir in the sprinkles.
STEP 3 Microwave the mug cake for 1 minute and 10 seconds. Then take it out and let the cake cool for 2-3 minutes before eating.
Tips & Tricks
- Don’t forget to top your mug cake! You can use your favorite topping, like frosting, whipped cream, powdered sugar, or a little ice cream.
- If your mug cake is not fully cooked after 1 minute 10 seconds, continue to cook in 10-second intervals to avoid overcooking the cake.
- Save the Double Stuf Oreos for cookie breaks and only use regular Oreos for this recipe. The Double Stuf cookies have too much filling and not enough cookie and since we’re using the cookie as the flour in this mug cake recipe, these Double Stuf simply won’t work.
- If you don’t have a food processor you can place the cookies in a Ziploc bag, seal it up, and crumble them by gently smacking the cookies with a rolling pin, until fine crumbs form.
Golden Oreo Funfetti Mug Cake FAQ
Is funfetti cake just vanilla cake with sprinkles?
Who wants to say “vanilla cake with sprinkles”, when we can say something better, like “funfetti”? The sprinkles are the fun confetti, or funfetti, that makes these cakes so iconic. The Golden Oreos in this recipe give this mug cake a vanilla, sugar cake taste and looks like a little party in a cup.
Do mug cakes really work?
The short answer is yes, mug cakes really work! Is it exactly like cake? While it’s pretty close, mug cakes have a little different texture than traditional cakes because of the few ingredients used to make them and the use of a microwave to cook them. The key to a good mug cake sometimes comes down to cooking time and experimenting with your own microwave to determine the perfect amount of time to cook a mug cake. Mug cakes always work, however, to satisfy those cake cravings and so quickly too!
