Microwave Mug Cakes – #3 S’mores

I’m stepping up my game in my Microwave Mug Cake series. First we had dark chocolate, then salted caramel… and now S’MORES! For those who don’t know what a S’more is, it consists of marshmallow and a layer of chocolate sandwiched between two pieces of graham cracker and roasted over a camp fire into a gooey mess. Heaven.

I am yet to find graham crackers in Australia so feel free to use any sweet biscuit (I used Arrowroot biscuits). I stumbled across a tub of Marshmallow Fluff in a city convenience store a while back and have been waiting to use it in a recipe! If you can’t find it, feel free to stick a few marshmallows on top.

Serves: 1
  • 2-3 tbsp cookie crumbs (if you can't find graham crackers use any sweet biscuit)

  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp baking powder

  2. In a separate bowl, microwave 3 tablespoons of butter for 10 seconds to melt.
  3. Add in egg and milk and lightly beat with a fork until combined.
  4. Add dry ingredients and stir with a fork until mixed through.
  5. Pour chocolate batter into mug on top of the cookie base.
  6. Top with marshmallow fluff or marshmallows.
  7. Place mug in the microwave and cook for 1 minute on medium heat.
  8. Finish off the mug cake by toasting the marshmallow topping under the grill or use a blow torch.
  9. Enjoy!

I made a mess trying to ensure I had a bit of cookie, chocolate cake and marshmallow in each mouthful but boy was it tasty! (And isn’t making a mess half the fun?!)

      I have been known to eat it straight out of the jar too, it pairs perfectly with a spoonful of peanut butter too – salty and sweet!

    Recipes like these make me very sad we don’t have a microwave at home. Maybe it’s time we replace ours (it exploded about a year ago and we’ve been too lazy to buy a new one!)

      I definitely think you must buy a new microwave purely for microwave mug cakes! :)
