How to Make a Muffin in the Microwave


A microwave muffin recipe generally follows the same rules. You need to mix the ingredients first, then microwave them on high for about 3 1/2 minutes. For example, this sweet potato muffin recipe for two takes some pretty basic materials plus some leftover sweet potato. It can be prepared in about 5 minutes.

Things You'll Need

  • Soup mug (microwave safe)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup cooked sweet potato (mashed)
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon

Mix together the egg and sweet potato in the mug. Mash well.

Add the remaining ingredients, and blend them together.

Place the mix in the microwave and cook it for about 3 1/2 minutes. The muffin will rise high over the mug lid, then drop down when the microwave cuts off.

Remove the muffin from the microwave and let it cool for 1 minute.

Tips & Warnings

  • Try adding walnuts or pecans to the batter.
