Blueberry Muffin:

  1. Combine all ingredients except blueberries in a mug. Mix with a fork until the batter is smooth.

  2. Stir in blueberries (see image #1).

  3. Cook in microwave for about one minute. If cake is not done, heat an additional 15 seconds.

  4. Let the cake cool for a minute and enjoy (see image #2)!

French Toast:

  1. Mix together the egg, milk, syrup, cinnamon, and salt in a mug until combined.

  2. Cut your bread into ½" squares.

  3. Add the bread to the mug and press the cubes down so they are submerged within the liquid (see image #3).

  4. Add the chocolate chips to the mug (optional) and give a little stir to incorporate them in the mixture.

  5. Microwave for a total of two minutes stopping every 30 seconds for a few seconds.

  6. Let cool for a minute. Sprinkle powdered sugar on top and enjoy (see image #4)!

Coffee Cake:

  1. In a mug, soften butter in the microwave for about five seconds. Stir in the sugar, applesauce, vanilla, flour, baking powder, and a pinch of salt, stirring until just combined. Use the back of your spoon to smooth it out in the bottom of the mug (see image #5).

  2. For the streusel, in a separate small bowl, combine butter, flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Use your fingers to combine these ingredients. When it achieves a crumbly texture, pour it on top of the cake batter in the mug.

  3. Cook in the microwave for 50-80 seconds, or until it appears just set on top. If it appears to be undone, add 10 seconds.

  4. Let the cake cool for a minute and enjoy (see image #6)!
