Once upon a time, a long time ago, I lived in a tiny dorm.  I had no stove, no oven, just a little old microwave.

I am amazed by this collection of make it in a mug recipes.   I wish I had these recipes handy way back during my college days.  Even now, I find them plenty helpful for times when I am extremely lazy and just want a small serving of something- like a single serving chocolate cake.


Mac and cheese always hits the spot.  Monique from The Better Martha makes the dish a million times easier with her brilliant instant mac and cheese in a mug recipe.  I see this becoming my go-to midnight snack.


A fast breakfast usually means instant oatmeal or a bowl of cold cereal.  With this 2-minute french toast in a cup by Jamie of Prudent Baby you can have a warm delicious breakfast without all the fuss.


This is great for mornings you want to impress your significant other with breakfast in bed.  Run to the kitchen and make this 1 minute microwave quiche in a mug by Daisy Bun of Full Thyme Student.  It takes less time to make this dish than it takes to get out of bed at 6 AM.


Even though summer is over, you can still enjoy s’mores.  This s’more mug cake by Kirbie of Kirbie Cravings lets you enjoy summer flavors all year long. 


Chocolate is my weakness.  I love this single serving instant chocolate cake in a mug by Lana of My Happy Dessert.  However, if you need a larger slice like me, I would make this in a giant latte mug. 


It takes more time to preheat the oven than make this tasty looking five-minute carrot cake for one by Katie of Chocolate Covered Katie.  This dessert definitely takes microwave cooking to new heights.


You can pop a cake mix in the oven for half an hour or you can microwave it for 5 minutes.  I choose the latter.  I’m eager to make this peach cobbler mug cake by Jaclyn of Cooking Classy.

I love chocolate. I love espresso.  Put those two together and you get a delectable dessert in a mug.  I would happily substitute my morning cup of coffee for this Chocolate espresso mug cake by Kurry Leaves.
