Microwave Cookies

Do you know that you can bake cookies in microwave?

Just mix and microwave! Easy enough for kids to bake ;)

Use your favorite sprinkles!!! I should have used more of pink ones. Ha-ha!!!

Video Recipe Available :D

Cup measurement video is HERE!!!

Number of servings: 20 cookies

100g (3.5oz.) butter (softened)
50g (1.7oz.) sugar
1 egg
* 130g (4.5oz.) all-purpose flour
* 1/2 tsp. baking powder
* 25g (0.8oz.) chocolate chips
* 25g (0.8oz.) sprinkles of your choice

1. Beat butter and sugar until creamy, add egg and mix well.
2. Sift A in 1. and mix well. Add B and mix well again.
3. Drop 5 cookies (at a time) by teaspoon in a ring onto waxed paper on microwave oven glass tray.
4. Microwave at 500w for 3min or 3 min + 30sec. Repeat the steps 3 & 4 to complete the rest.

My original recipe in Japanese is here.

Microwave Cookies (Metric Cup Measurement)

Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 15min
Number of servings: 24 cookies

1cup = 250ml or 250cc

1/2cup = 125ml butter (softened) *100g (3.5oz.)
1/4cup = 62.5ml granulated sugar
1 egg
1cup = 250ml cake flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4cup = 62.5ml chocolate chips

1. Beat butter and sugar until creamy, add egg and mix well.
2. Sift cake flour and baking powder in 1. and mix well. Add chocolate chips and mix well again.
3. Drop 4 cookie dough at a time by tablespoon onto parchment paper on microwavable plate or tray. *You don't want to burn your plate, so please line with the parchment paper.
4. Microwave at 500w for 3min (or less or more depending on the heat of your microwave). Repeat the steps 3 & 4 to complete the rest. *It is safe to test from 1 min to see how they come out. Microwave bakes the cookies from inside, so if they are baked golden brown, they are burned X(

*You can also bake them in an oven at 180C (350F) for 15 minutes.

  1. Wow! That's so great! I have always wanted to bake but right now I don't have an oven yet. I will definitely try this and let you know what happens!

  2. Hi Justin,

    Yeah! Let me know how it came out ;) Best wishes!!!

  3. Well Justin how did Ochi's cookies come out!! I'll have to try these too! Do they come out crunchy or cakelike!!

  4. Hi jo,

    Pretty crunchy. Maybe too crunchy. But if you think of the time you spent to make it, it's worthwhile ;)

  5. Hello^^ I came across your recipe by chance and decided to try it. I live in Japan, so my apartment doesn't have an oven (I can't afford to buy one yet!), so this recipe seemed perfect!
    Well, they turned out great!! I found that if I took them out while they were still a little soft, they didn't end up too crunchy^^ They still hardened a little while sitting out, so they ended up perfect =)
    Just wanted to say thank you for posting such an awesome recipe!

  6. Thanks Erika,

    That's a real happy comment!!! I'm glad that I translated this recipe!!!

    >if I took them out while they were still a little soft, they didn't end up too crunchy^^
    Great you found that!!!

    Thanks again!!!

  7. i tried this recipie and first time round i burnt the cookies and melted the plate they were on. but then i lowered the time to a minute and a half and they've come out perfectly ever since.
    brilliant recipie. soo recommending this to friends with kids xx

  8. Thanks ribena1989!

    I just realized your comment!!!
    Maybe the heat depends on the microwave. I'm sorry to hear about your plate X( But glad to hear that you found the right time to bake!!! I will put that in my mind, too!!!

  9. I tried to make these and they didn't turn out crunchy/.. they turned out crunchy on the outside and powdery on the inside..

  10. thanks for trying out!

    powdery, oh, you said you used rice flour?! i wonder why... but maybe it doesn't work right with rice flour... thanks for your feedback!!!

  22. Thank you for this great recipe! :3

    I have 2 big bags of Chinese bun powder at home, it has 80% flour, 18.6% sugar and baking soda. Do you think I can use it?

  23. My wife is a パティシエ. She says that you can put cookies into a container with a slice of bread. The cookies will become softer the next day. :-)

    I just bought a Japanese microwave so I will try this recipe! (And many others, i think. ;-) ) Thanks for posting it!.
