Oreo Mug Cake: TikTok Version

Have you tried the 2-ingredient Oreo mug cake yet?

This is the viral TikTok Oreo mug cake that has just two ingredients, literally milk and Oreo cookies.

Does it sound like it would just make Oreo cookie mush in a mug?

It doesn’t!

It cooks up into a springy, fluffy, sweet mug cake.

If you love chocolate mug cakes here are others you might want to try too:

Can You Put Oreos in the Microwave?

Yes you can!

They won’t blow up.

Well possibly if you just put a bunch of Oreos on a plate in the microwave it might make a big mess.

But in this TikTok mug cake, a microwave “cooks” (warms) the Oreos and milk and makes the magic happen.

So Oreos and a microwave do go together.

Oreo Mug Cake Ingredients

This mug cake recipe really couldn’t be simpler.

Here’s what you need:

  • Oreos, any flavor
  • Milk, any kind

Here are ideas on how to make gluten-free, vegan, and keto versions of this mug cake:

Vegan Oreo Mug Cake

Did you know that Oreos are naturally vegan?

So my vegan friends you can enjoy this TikTok mug cake recipe as is, just using your favorite non-dairy milk.

Gluten-Free Oreo Mug Cake

For a gluten-free Oreo mug cake, you can use these gluten-free Oreos.

Follow the rest of the regular recipe below.

Keto Oreo Mug Cake

For a keto version of this TikTok mug cake recipe, you need keto sandwich cookies like these ones.

For the milk, use one of these options to keep your mug cake keto:

  • Unsweetened almond milk
  • Heavy cream
  • Unsweetened coconut milk
  • Unsweetened soy milk

How to Make a Tiktok Oreo Mug Cake

The first thing you need is four Oreo cookies.

Crush up the Oreos until they are in crumbs. There are a few ways to do this.

Use a fork, a pastry cutter, or put them in a heavy-duty ziplock bag and bash them with a rolling pin. That last way is great for getting frustrations out. 🤪

My favorite way though is to use a food processor. I have a small food processor I use for this, but a regular-sized one will work too. (I also use the small food processor for making guac, salsa, and quick chopping of fruits and veg.)

Not only is the food processor faster (mine takes 5-10 seconds), it can get the Oreo cookie crumbs finer than if you’re crushing the cookies with a fork.

But if all you have is a fork, don’t skip this mug cake recipe – it will still be completely yummy. Don’t deny yourself all the Oreo mug cake deliciousness.

I don’t bother spraying my mug with oil or cooking spray. I have tried it both ways and it really doesn’t make a difference.

Pour the cookie crumbs into your mug and add 3 tablespoons of your milk of choice; stir.

It will look like what it is: crushed cookies in milk, and not really like batter. This is okay.

Microwave Mug Cake Tips

Put your mug on a plate and then into the microwave. I always use a plate the first time I make a new mug cake recipe to catch any overflow as I’m figuring out the best time for my microwave.

Microwave the Oreo mug cake on high power for 1 minute.

For most microwaves, this will be enough time. If your mug cake is still a bit wet in the center, cook for an extra 15 seconds at a time until done.

Top with any topping you like (I am a fan of whipped cream on this and pretty much everything) or enjoy in all its naked delicious glory.

Let’s Get to TikTok Oreo Mug Cake Flavors

While I am a die-hard regular Oreo cookies fan (you can’t improve on perfection), they do have lots of yummy flavors if you’re craving a change.

I decided to try four other flavors of Oreos for the Oreo mug cake hack.

The substitutions are 1:1; simply sub whatever flavor of Oreo cookie for the plain ones and follow the mug cake recipe.

Here are the varieties I tried and the pics if you’d like to try them out yourself (I especially love the third one!):

Original Oreo

Birthday Cake Oreo

Mint Oreo

Cinnamon Bun Oreo

Carrot Cake Oreo

Pick one and let’s make this TikTok mug cake!
