When it comes to homemade dessert, the easier the recipe is, the more inclined I am to attempt making it. I usually don't want to fuss with pulling out a bulky mixer or doling out baking powder, so imagine my excitement when I discovered one of TikTok's favourite sweet treats as of late: the two-ingredient Oreo mug cake. The impossibly simple dessert only calls for Oreos and milk — yep, that's it! If you're looking to satisfy your sweet tooth in a pinch, follow these simple steps to make your very own Oreo mug cake at home in a matter of minutes.
- Put a handful of your favourite Oreos in a mug (about 6-8, depending on your mug's size).
- Fill the mug halfway with the milk of your choice, and use a fork to crush up the cookies into small chunks. Continue smashing and stirring until it forms a smooth batter with some Oreo bits mixed in.
- Microwave the mug for around one to two minutes, depending on your microwave's strength. Check on the mixture while it cooks as needed.
- Safely remove it from the microwave, and dig in!
The resulting concoction is a moist cake-like substance that's practically begging to be topped with whipped cream, caramel syrup, ice cream, sprinkles, or whatever your heart desires. Plus, you're not restricted to just the original Oreos — I mean, imagine how tasty it'd be if made with crushed-up tiramisu-flavoured Oreos or even the glittery Trolls-themed cookies that came out earlier this year! In case you need any more motivation to try out this easy dessert recipe yourself, check out a few videos ahead to see the various Oreo mug cake combinations that are taking over TikTok and Instagram. Fair warning: drooling may ensue.
