You’re probably thinking I’ve been making way too many desserts on this blog lately. Banana bread, cheesecake, and now another mug cake? But, I love sharing how you can make amazing desserts in the microwave in minutes instead of hours.

This particular recipe is kinda like magic. It’s amazing! Seriously, even a kid can make this OREO cake for themselves.

Then, add about 3 tablespoons of milk.

Use a spoon or fork and crush up the cookies in the milk and mix it up good until it’s like a cake batter.

If it’s too thick, add a splash of milk. If it’s too thin, add another cookie. Then, mix it up again until it’s like the consistency of cake batter.

Cook in the microwave for 50-60 seconds. I have a 1500-watt microwave, and I find it’s best at 50 seconds.
