Mugnut (Jam Doughnut in a Mug)

MogoBlog MogoLicious Tasty Tip of the Day:  This is a donut that can be mixed up in less than five minutes, cooked in one minute with no need for a fryer, and it tastes like a donut!!!! What is not to love about that?

Mugnut (Jam Doughnut in a Mug)


    • 2 tablespoons (1oz/30g) butter
    • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    • 1 egg yolk
    • 2 tablespoons sugar
    • 1 tablespoon milk
    • ½ teaspoon baking powder
    • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1 tablespoon strawberry jam
    • Cinnamon sugar to garnish

 Instructions (make in your MogoBox 15 oz. Classic White Mug):

    1. Place butter into a microwavable mug and microwave until just melted. (roughly 20 seconds)
    2. Add in the remaining ingredients; mix well with fork until just combined
    3. Once the batter is mixed place the spoonful of jam down into the batter to get a jammy center
    4. Microwave for 45 seconds or until is firm on top. (Cooking time is based on my 1200W microwave so your timing might vary) Always keep a close eye on your mug while in the microwave so it doesn’t over flow or over cook.
    5. Sprinkle some cinnamon sugar on top and enjoy straight away!


    • They can be mixed up in advance for an even speedier meal
    • Cooking time will vary depending on your microwave and the width and depth of the mug
    • You can replace the egg with 2 tablespoons of banana or apple sauce
    • You can bake them in the oven at 350oF (180oC) for roughly 10-12 minutes. However every mug is different so I advise checking on it after 10 and then make a call.
