Oh, how we love making ourselves single serve treats in cups and mugs and plates using our microwave. Our Cup of Coffee Cake (in under five minutes) is our most popular post of all time, and 2-Minute French Toast in a Cup isn’t far behind. Now we have a recipe for a one-minute microwave chocolate chip cookie on a plate. This could not be easier.
Now, a microwave cookie is not going to have a crispy browned exterior like a baked cookie, so don’t expect it to be exactly the same as your mom’s famous recipe. But what it does have is ooey, gooey, melty chocolate chips. And it can be ready in a minute. And you can make just one at a time. So it’s got some things going for it.
Head on over to Jaime’s Lazy Late Night Cooking Corner on our YouTube channel for more microwave treats like, Single Serve Cinnamon Roll, Rice Krispy Treat, Blueberry Cobbler, and Strawberry Shortcake for Two.
Let’s get to making a microwave chocolate chip cookie on a plate…
Microwave Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
Start with one tablespoon of butter. Soften it in the microwave for 6-8 seconds. Add a teaspoon and a half of sugar and a teaspoon of packed brown sugar (I used light brown). Stir them together with a fork until light and fluffy. Add a single drop of vanilla and mix again.
Now you want to add some egg. You only need a teaspoon or two of egg, so you can crack one, stir it up, and seperate out your bit for the cookie and use the rest to scramble. Or, if you are quickly becoming a microwave-baking-afficiando like myself, you could keep a carton of egg whites on hand, and just add a teaspoon from there. Mix.
