Mug Cheesecake (2 Minutes Microwave)

Life just got a little more perfect.
Cheesecake in a mug, how sweet is that?!
After some tries and changes here and there it actually really tastes like normal cheesecake, I couldn’t believe it. Same texture as the normal oven-baked cheesecakes, it is amazing!
It’s the perfect single serving size and there is endless variations you can make.From chocolate chips to berries over pumpkin, everything is possible.
And they are so much healthier than normal cheesecakes. Low fat, low cal, super light … I love it!
I wanna show you the basic recipe and hope you have a lot of fun creating your own individual Mug Cheesecakes.

Author: 
Recipe type: Dessert
 
What you need
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fat free sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons low fat cream cheese
  • ⅛ teaspoon lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ egg, beaten fluffy (egg substitute works too)

  • 1 vanilla wafer
How you make it
  1. In a small bowl mix together sugar, sour cream, cream cheese, lemon juice and egg until well combined
  2. Fold in your favorite Mix-in (if you want a plain cheesecake, just leave this step out)
  3. Microwave on high for 1 minute
  4. Open microwave door for 20 seconds, close, and microwave again for 45 seconds (if you use a mix-in you might need additional 20 seconds)
  5. Take out of the microwave, let cool for 10 minutes, then transfer to the fridge for about 2 hours
  6. Serve with a crushed vanilla wafer on top (or if you take it out of the cup put crushed vanilla wafer on the plate and place cake on top)

  2. Cookie Martinez says:

    oh boy!!! I’m doomed! gonna try this tomorrow for dessert after lunch….oh my goodness, I feel my pants getting tighter as we speak…oh well!!!

  3. What wattage is the microwave you used – a 1200 watt microwave oven? Everyone’s microwave oven is different
    – for instance, mine is a 700 watt. I usually have to add extra time to my
    heating times since the wattage on my microwave is lower.

  4. I don’t have fat free…can I use full strength? ;)

  5. Pam Plante says:

    this is wonderful but can I ask what you mean by –your favorite mix-in? What are you mixing in?
    thanks

  6. Sandra goldberg says:

    Oh would love to make this

  7. How do u use half an egg?

  8. Just ate this and it’s delicious! I substituted Splenda for the confectioners sugar.

  9. It states mug cheesecake are you suppose to put the mix in a mug?

    • Yes, you “bake” it in a mug in the microwave and then you can either spoon it out of the mug or dump it on a plate like I did (but only after the cooling time :)

  10. This looks good will be making it one night this week for a after school treat for my grandson

  11. Perfect answer to “cheesecake craving” without the temptation of an entire cheesecake!!! This is a must-make recipe!

  12. OMG this is perfect. I do the 1 2 3 cupcake so I won’t have an entire cake is the house this would be a great solution for cheesecake. Thanks again can’t wait to try it

    This is 5 points for Weight Watchers—I substituted Splenda for the sugar, Fat free Cream Cheese for the low fat—used eggbeaters instead of the egg, and left off the cookie crumbs making it 2 Weight Watchers points. I added 1 Tablespoon of drained crushed Pineapple in t’s own juice—very good.

    Thank you for those great recipes and your time, ! I personally have not done none of them yet but my granddaughter is coming to stay a few days with us ( she is 6 years but acts like 15, ) she is great kid! Anyway, I’m excited because she loves to bake with me, but for the last 6 months, the ovens have not been working and the holidays are around the corner. Know I got to show her a new way to MicroBake! She will love this…
    Please keep getting more ideas for recipes in the Microwave.
    You may have save my reputation as a good baker with my in laws and my familia this recipe.
    Thanks
    P.S. need more microwave recipes

  20. I made a small crust with graham crackers and butter at the bottom before i cooked the cheesecakeand it was soooo goog.

  21. Can’t wait to try this.

  22. Can’t wait to try this. I assume you could make two instead of tossing half the egg and no longer than it cooks, just cook separately. I have graham cracker crumbs, too and that could also go on top.thanks for figuring this out

  23. Oven directions?
