Activity: Microwaved Desserts

Did you know that you don’t necessarily need an oven to bake? You can do it in the microwave!

Using a mug or another small container, you can make brownies, cookies, cinnamon rolls, bread pudding, and cakes, among other things.

Whether you live in a dorm, want a single-serving dessert, or simply don’t want to use your oven, you can find tons of recipes for microwavable desserts online.

A few favorites that we found in our research include Microwave Chocolate Mug Cake, Microwave Brownies, and Microwave Chocolate Chip Cookies. All of these recipes are relatively simple, straightforward, and quick to make.

Keep the following tips in mind when baking in the microwave:

  • Check your dessert often. Stop your microwave every so often to check that your dessert isn’t baking unevenly or overcooking. Baking times will vary depending on your microwave’s wattage and condition.
  • Always use a microwave-safe container. Ceramic and stoneware dishes are the best options.
  • Use an appropriately-sized container. Most microwaves have a spinning tray inside, so you’ll need to choose a dish small enough that it doesn’t stop that tray from spinning. Be sure not to use too small of a container, though, so your dessert doesn’t bake over and make a mess in your microwave!
