The Power of the Mug

Services for Real Estate Pros with Elegant Business Cards

Several years ago, I leaned how to make microwave brownies in a mug. They're easy, fun, and taste pretty good! If you haven't tried them, a quick search online will provide you with a selection of recipes.

Recently, I discovered a new recipe that is equally satisfying...pancakes in a mug!

I mean, who doesn't love pancakes?

And the recipe is super easy. Just put in equal amounts of pancake batter and milk, then microwave.

Starting out, I suggest sticking to 1/4 cup of pancake batter and 1/4 cup of milk, then microwave for 60-90 seconds (or a bit longer if necessary).

The bigger the mug, the more mixture you'll want to use, and the longer you'll have to cook it.

And of course, you'll want to make sure your mug is microwave safe, as some mugs heat up to dangerous levels.

In my experience so far, the finished product has a spongy feel to it, and pulls away from the inside of the mug quite easily.

Top with butter and syrup, or whatever your favorite pancake topping is, and enjoy!

Pancakes in a mug. I highly recommend them!

A pancake in a mug.  Now there's an interesting idea.  I only eat pancakes a couple times a year, but, I'd like to try this idea, at least once!

Hello Ron Schrader - I just found out about the brownie in a mug about two weeks ago and it's so perfect for me after dinner. I will have to try the pancake in a mug and I'm even thinking about adding bacon bits or even blueberries.  thanks for the idea!  There is Power in the mug!  Have an awesome rest of the week.
