I personally have a major sweet tooth. I love my dessert. That’s why I love these microwave mug recipes, but on the other hand it’s a dangerous tool.

You now have easy access to quick simple desserts. It’s all I can do not to eat dessert for breakfast, lunch and dinner. So beware, use these recipes wisely.

When it comes to dessert, easier is always sweeter. It’s hard to keep multiple ingredients stored in a dorm room or small appartment space, and no one has the time to spend hours baking.

Individually sized treats are a great way to get a sugar fix without putting in too much effort. No recipe takes over five minutes and all make for a great late-night treat when you get craving for something sweet.

Forget the bags of chips and boxed cupcakes. When it comes to dessert give yourself something worth eating.

Gooey Chocolate Cake 

– Babble.com
1 egg
¼ cup powdered sugar
1-2 tbs. cocoa powder

Whisk together the ingredients until well mixed, and microwave for 50-60 seconds until cooked well through. Immediately top it with ice cream, chocolate chips, whipped cream, or whatever fits your mood. Make sure not to overcook!

Blueberry Mug Cake 

– Food.com
4 tbs. whole wheat flour
4 tbs. sugar substitute
2 tbs. brown sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1-2 tbs. fresh blueberries
5 tbs. nonfat milk

Mix in the mug the flour, sugar substitute, brown sugar and baking powder. Add milk and stir. Continue to add milk and stir until it looks like cake batter. Stir in blueberries and then microwave on high for 2-3 minutes.

Cinnamon Roll in a Mug

– Ashevillefoodie.com

1 tbs. butter (melted)
2 tbs. flour (self rising)
3 tbs. sugar
½ tsp. cinnamon (ground)
1 egg (medium)
1 dash vanilla

Mix ingredients, microwave for one minute. If you like you can make your own icing by combining 1 tbs. cream cheese, 2 tbs. powdered sugar, and 1 tsp. milk. Just mix it together.
