Microwave Mug Cookery

Have a look at the PDF for a range of interesting Mug recipes.  Some are a little different and there are egg free, flour free and savoury options.


Send the ingredients lists for your chosen mug recipes to the Explorers in advance.  Or send them all the recipes and let them choose which to try!  Let them know that they’ll need to have their ingredients, a microwave safe mug and some basic kitchen equipment ready.


This activity could be done all together at a meeting (via Zoom etc) or you could (virtually) meet first to discuss which recipes everyone is testing… and then reconvene later to show and tell / taste the results!


Age Range:                     Explorer Scouts (but suitable for Scouts too)

Time to Complete:         Depends on how many recipes you try!


Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
