Blueberry Mug Muffin

This Blueberry Mug Muffin is quick & easy to make. Sweet plump blueberries in a delicately spiced muffin made in the microwave in less than 5-minutes.

Prep Time 4 minutes
Cook Time 1 minute


  • 2 tbsp (28g) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 medium egg
  • 3 tbsp light brown sugar
  • pinch salt
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon, optional
  • 4 tbsp self-raising flour, see notes
  • 3-4 tbsp fresh blueberries


  1. Add the butter to a mug and melt in the microwave for around 10-30 seconds.
  2. Add the vanilla, milk, and egg and beat with a fork until well combined.
  3. Add the sugar, salt, cinnamon (optional), and flour and beat again until smooth.
  4. Gently fold half the blueberries in the batter and cook for 30 seconds.
  5. Remove from the microwave, top with the remaining blueberries and cook for a further 1 minute 10 seconds to 1 minute 50 seconds, depending on your microwave power.
  6. Remove from the microwave and allow to cool for around 10-15 minutes before serving. Best served warm.



If you don't have any self-raising flour on hand, substitute with plain (all-purpose) flour and add an additional ¼ tsp baking powder.


Top with a blueberry or lemon compote, whipped cream, nuts, or a sprinkling of vanilla sugar.

    Whoa, this is a fabulous mug recipe! Moist and packed full of berries! I've failed at my attempts to develop really good chocolate mug cake---but the family doesn't mind eating my less than ideal attempts :)

    I love this recipe, I have a few mug cake ones but not a muffin one and I adore blueberries. I think these 1 serving recipes are great because lets face it we don't always need a whole cake / batch of sweet things hanging around the house tempting us when we can instantly satisfy our craving with a single serving treat like this one! Love it :D
