Microwave cobbler in a mug following this strawberry cobbler recipe easy can be made using a microwave safe mug. You can make one to two servings of cobbler in a microwave using a mug.
In fact, I didn't plan to make this cobbler in a mug in microwave. I started out as usual, made the cobbler batter from scratch using this recipe here, and I have greased my cake pan with butter and poured over the batter and layered the strawberries on top to make the cobbler in the conventional oven. I switched on the oven for preheating, and its gone.
My conventional oven was not working and I didn't know what to do with the strawberry cobbler batter waiting in the cake pan.
I thought about ways to steam it or cook it on stove top so I transferred the contents to an iron skillet lined with few layers of aluminium foil and found a lid which I can use to close the skillet and I turned on the stove. After few seconds, the stove also went off and it was showing an error of F9 in the screen.
I googled to see what the error code F9 says and found that the electronic circuit need to be replaced. So this was going to take some time. I checked my microwave oven and luckily its working.
However, I didn't think about making the cobbler in microwave as I didn't have any microwave safe utensils which can hold the entire batter for cobbler (other than plastic ones which I only use for quick cooking recipes).
So I transferred the whole cobbler batter to a storage box and kept in the refrigerator and went to sleep.
The next day morning, as I realized the oven is not going to be repaired before another 3 to 4 days (its a weekend) I thought about making the strawberry cobbler in a mug.
I had the batter ready which I prepared to bake in the conventional oven. I cannot use the entire batter as the microwave safe mug is small which can hold one or two servings of batter.
The good thing is I had a lot of batter which I could use multiple times, preparing mini cobblers in the mug just enough for one or two servings. I greased the mug with melted butter and started making the strawberry cobbler in a mug.
As I was writing this post, someone came for maintenance and they replaced the entire stove and oven, it didn't took 3 to 4 days and I got a brand new stove and oven 🙂 However my strawberry cobbler in mug was already made!
So here is how I made this strawberry cobbler in a mug in the microwave.
As I already mentioned, I prepared the battery and strawberry mix for an entire cobbler as usual, so in this recipe I am using few spoons of the already prepared cobbler batter to make the microwave cobbler in a mug.
