Shirley J Mugging *Review



Shirley J has revolutionized my evening snacking with mugging! Mugging?? Basically baking the dessert in a microwave safe mug. This allows me to make a single serving dessert or snack without having to heat up the oven or go through all of the measuring cups and mixing bowls to achieve my goal.

The mugging packets come in 8 different varieties.



Chocolate Brownie Cake
Old-Fashioned Yellow Cake and Cobbler
Country Style Cornbread
Gluten-Free Chocolate Brownie Cake
Pumpkin Spice Bread
Walnut Bread
Quiche in a Cup
No-Pan Pancake

The Quiche in a Cup has been fantastic for me to have a quick breakfast in the mornings before we start school. It tastes great and I simply add an egg and some cheese to it and 90 seconds later have a hearty and tasty breakfast. This would work fantastic for those college kids who have to spring out of bed in the morning to make it to class! The No-Pan Pancake would also work wonderfully for breakfast on the run.




I thought I would be all over the desserts first but I really loved the quiche!

Chocolate Brownie Cake was my second choice to try, you can see the youtube video below on how the mugging process and they make this luscious desserts. Adding chocolate chips to the brownie and frosting them on top gives it a heavenly dessert that you certainly will want to hide from the children!



I also tried the Old Fashioned Yellow Cake and Cobbler. I opted to put  chocolate chips on it this first try. I need to purchase some fruit to put on the next one. I love that each box comes with 5 packets so you can try out new things each time.! Each box gives suggestions on ways you can embellish the yummy goodies.

Out of the 8 different products, three do require an additional item to be added. Pumpkin Spice bread calls for canned pumpkin, Walnut Bread calls for walnuts and of course the Quiche calls for an egg and cheese.



The other 5 all you need is water!! There are optional suggestions, like chocolate chips but you don't need anything other than tap water. How cool is that!

Something this easy and gourmet is going to cost a lot right? Not at all! 5 packets for $12.95. $2.20 per mug! That is a great price for a homemade, fresh from the microwave, proportional dessert. Another thing I love about the mugging is that I make just one for myself, rather than a whole pan of brownies where I would tend to overindulge.

They even have a gluten free Chocolate Cake mix! I am so excited for this line of products, I can't wait to see what others they may develop in the future.

I highly recommend the mugging mugs for making your desserts. They are 16 oz bistro style mugs and the perfect size for mugging.

They have gift boxed sets where you can purchase a mug and an individual mugging and it comes in a box all set to wrap and give as a gift. $14.95 and they will have the mug on hand as well.

  14. Cool, these look great, I like that the majority of them have all you need in the pouch to make the mugging easier, I especially like the idea of warm cornbread with a bowl of hot stew and not heating the whole house up.. YUMMY

  18. It's great that they offer gluten free choices - also love that only three of them require additional ingredients! (I'm the type of person who NEVER has just one of the ingredients whenever I try to do baking... only missing the one thing...)
