Oreo Mug Cakes Are TikTok’s Latest Food Obsession

Mug cakes aren’t new, but videos of people making them seem to be a novelty. Perhaps that’s why Oreo mug cakes are TikTok’s latest food obsession.

TikTok food hacks and recipes have become a major social media category, and here’s a new one. People are combining Oreos and milk in mugs, microwaving the concoction, and ending up with cake.

Just search #oreocake, and you’ll see these videos have been viewed 29.9 million times (admittedly, that hashtag covers traditional cakes, too, though).

To create an Oreo mug cake, put four or five Oreo cookies in a mug, and then pour milk over them until they’re covered. Smush the cookies, and then add and smush two more. Microwave for one to two minutes, and that’s it!

Based on the variety of ways in which people are changing up the recipe (fewer cookies, more cookies, less milk, more time, and so on), it seems pretty fail-safe.
