I recently restocked my supply of baking Oreos and decided to whip up my Cookies and Cream Mug Cake to satisfy a sweet craving.

This is a new and improved version of the one I made last year. It took quite a few tries, but I finally created a version that had enough white chocolate and cookies and cream flavor for my 5-Minute Mug Cakes book. I love how every bite is full of Oreo chocolate cookie pieces mixed with Oreo cream.

Like most of my mug cake recipes, this one is ready in just 5 minutes!

As mentioned above, this recipe is featured in my new cookbook* of nearly 100  mug cakes!

  1. Hi, I love this simple recipe! How many watts is it supposed to be microwaved at?

  2. I’ve made this mug cake many times and just love it, even if I don’t like White Chocolate!!

    Now it’s Christmas and I was wanting to make up little ‘kits’ to give away – a mug, and the non-perishable ingredients. 

    But can only find White Chocolate WAFERS right now. Probably left it way too late to shop.

    Can I substitute an equal amount, in weight, of wafers for chips?


  3. Oh my goodness! This looks so good! I’ve been collecting mug cake recipes recently because when I bake and frost cakes I always end up with some leftover frosting. I figured I should start making little mug cakes to use with the extras. This recipe looks super yummy and I’ll definitely be giving it a try 🙂

  4. So good! I used cashew milk instead of whole milk and it came out just fine! I used 3 Oreos for more Oreo flavor and in addition to white chocolate I actually also took one of those chocolate Oreo cookie bars and put a few pieces in when I melted the chocolate together with the milk. Delicious!! Definitely will be making many more times! 

  5. Two questions.  Does ceramic mug have to be more of a short, wider mouth mug or will a taller coffee mug type work.  My cup is a 15 ounce one.   Also, where is your mug cake cookbook sold.  Thank you. 

  6. I was thinking about making this for a bake sale coming up at work. However, because of where I live, apartments are ovenless. Is it OK to make this recipe a day before (in small, one mug amounts) and then bring it to a bake sale the next day? And if so would you recommend freezing it overnight so it stays moist or just leaving it out? I really know nothing about baking so I’m sorry if these are rather strange or stupid questions.

    • I don’t recommend making these mug cakes for consumption that will be a day or so later. They are best eaten warm and soon after they are cooked. Because they are not quite the same as regular cakes they will dry out faster and don’t preserve well even if you were to put in freezer.

  7. Hi Kirbie!
    I LOVE your mug cakes, especially this recipe! I make it all the time! I have a question for you: I am looking to start my own baking blog and I was wondering how you come up with inspiration for your recipes. How do you come up with fun and exciting ideas for mug cakes?

    • Hi Mariah- I draw inspiration from a lot of places: browsing through dessert recipes, cooking shows on tv, random ingredients laid out on my kitchen counter, suggestions from readers. Good luck with your baking blog!

  8. When i did this recipe, i switched it up a bit. I made it with dark chocolate instead, only broke up the oreo cookie itself, and made the cream into a frosting on top. The cake itself stayed moist, and almost reminded me of a fudgy brownie. Thanks for the recipe!

  9. When you say “oversized” for mug size, could you give a bit more information like how many ounces would fit in said mug? I’d like to make single-serve cake treat bags so sisters at church may take them home and indulge when they want to, but I don’t want to assume everyone has the same size mugs. I will most likely have to look for mugs to give for those without, but which size do I need?
