  9. Thanks for all your delicious research!

  10. Aw thanks for including me! 🙂

  11. Fabulous! x

  12. I make some of these while babysitting and my clients love them! Some are better than others but thanks for the list of fun and easy recipes that kids love.

  13. I really WANT to try all these different mug cakes but I can’t stop making the Chocolate Chip Cookie in a mug! It’s amazing and the perfect size! 🙂

  14. Wow What a great list! Thank you so much. Now if I could just make the main dish for supper in a mug I would have it made. hehe Just kidding…..maybe! 😉 These all look so delicious. 🙂

  15. All of these look so yummy! I have one of those little stoneware cookers and I’m wondering if these work well in that or if a more narrow mug needs to be used. Has anyone else tried that before I take to experimenting?

  16. Oh wow…Bliss wrote about this post and I had to check it out…but I had no idea I would find so many incredibly delicious looking recipes!! I had to pin this, and I can’t wait to try some, especially that smores one, and the French toast, and the cookies & cream…oh dear, I’m going to have to start running to work all of them off. What fun it will be to make some for the grandkids.

  17. I LOVE these recipes! So far, I have tried the chocolate chip cookie and the chocolate espresso mug cake – both were very easy to make, and excellent. I’ve decided that this is the one 30-day challenge I can meet. . .much better than those 30-day plank or squat challenges. Well done!

    This will be great for me to use while I’m in my college dorm. No stove or oven, but I do have a microwave. Yippee!!!

  19. I made it for my hubby (he’s more of a sweet tooth than I am) and it looked just like the picture! I used 1 tbsp each of the sugars since some reviewers said it was too sweet. It came out perfect! Will def make again!

    Thank you so much for sharing these, living by myself again after all the kids are grown and away from home… so hard to cook for one, and these are awesome ideas…. will be trying several of them… 🙂 Do the happy dance here LOL

  21. thanks for sharing…..excited about trying one of these..

  22. Thanks so much for sharing! I’m definitely going to try some of these recipes when I’m craving something sweet!

  23. Equagold says:

    Stunning! These all look astonishing and single serve – now I can be egotistical and simply make myself a brisk sweet when the longing calls for it [read: always]!

    These will be great for me to use. I’m autistic so I don’t cook or bake without somebody to supervise me, so I just use the microwave.
