I love how fresh and moist this muffin is. With the bursting fresh blueberries and a vanilla cake batter this is the perfect muffin for one.

I’ve tried several (and by that I mean more than I can count) blueberry mug muffin recipes out there and so many came close, but none ever tasted exactly like I think it should. Finally I just went ahead and made my own. The recipe down below. 😉 And it’s the best muffin in mug recipe I’ve ever tried.

If you’re looking for something that tastes sweet, but not too sweet, savory, tangy, and fluffy- this is it. Try it out today and see how great it is for yourself.

Tips for making blueberry cake in a mug

This recipe is pretty straightforward so I don’t have very many tips, just an observation I need to point out so that you don’t hurt the mug muffin.

When it finishes cooking, the top center of the mug muffin will appear a tad wet. It looks like undercooked bread batter and might make you want to pop it back in the microwave for longer.

Please note that this “wet spot” is supposed to happen with almost all mug cakes. It’s a sign that it’s cooked properly and not overdone. To cook it until that spot disappears will give you a rubbery and chewy muffin.

After removing the mug from the microwave the spot goes away in a matter of seconds. To accurately test to see if the blueberry muffin has been completely cooked through, stab at it with a fork and check the inside. That is the most accurate test, looking at the center for yourself.

Microwave Blueberry Muffin FAQs

Can I use nondairy milk?

Yes, you can. If you want to use almond milk or some other noncow milk then go for it. By using nondairy milk you could make this mug muffin dairy free and vegan-friendly.

What can I use besides coconut oil?

You can use melted butter (if salted omit requested salt in recipe card) or canola oil. All of them change the flavor ever so slightly, but above all else, I do not recommend olive oil for this recipe as that changes the flavor too much.

Can I use a different berry?

Absolutely! This mug muffin recipe would taste incredible with quartered strawberries or raspberries. Add them in place of the blueberries, (or do a mix of berries).

Why did my berries sink to the bottom of my mug muffin?

If you wait too long after adding the berries, you’ll notice gravity pulling them down in your cup. This is a big reason for adding them as the last step before microwaving the cup so that they can’t sink while cooking.

How can I make this muffin taste even more incredible?

Adding a tablespoon of cheesecake dry pudding mix (from a boxed pudding) into the ingredients can give a richer taste and feel. As can adding in a couple of white chocolate chips!

How to make blueberry muffin in a mug

In a coffee mug, mix your flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.

In a separate container melt your coconut oil in the microwave for 30 seconds and then mix it with your milk and vanilla.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix well to combine.

Add in the fresh blueberries and gently stir to combine.

Microwave for 1min 30seconds to 2 minutes until cooked through. I find that 1 min 45 seconds is the sweet spot for my microwave.
