Recipe: A Jam doughnut in a mug… A Mugnut!

This is our second recipe for the Chosan Website, which has been sent to us by the wonderful Pipis Cuisine. The baobab jam doughnut with a difference, its in a mug. A great recipe to have now that the days are starting to end with a chill in the air.

If you have a busy lifestyle or a demanding job, then this is a go-to desert you can make and share with your family and friends. For this mugnut, I used the ‘Orange and Baobab Jam’ by Chosan.

A few weeks back, I was gifted some Chosan jam flavours to try out. My first thought was to try them out on a jam doughnut recipe. However, I also wanted to make something super easy, something that could be as easy as making “jam on toast”. Then, the idea of mugnut came to mind.

I enjoyed using this product as it is 100% organic with less sugar than most jams and there are no artificial sweeteners. It is suitable for everyone. It was a delicious filling to my doughnut.

The ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons of milk
  • 1 Egg yolk
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 4 1/2 tablespoons of all purpose flour
  • a pinch of cinnamon powder
  • 2 tablespoon of Orange and Baobab Jam or Baobab Jam with Ginger
  • a pinch of cinnamon sugar to garnish

For this jam doughnut recipe (but in a mug) you’ll only need a microwaveable mug and spoons. It should also only take a maximum of 5 minutes to prepare and around 2 mins to make. Though this does depends on the size of your mug and the power of your microwave.


  1. Place the butter in your microwavable mug. Heat the butter in a microwave on full power for 30 seconds to melt the butter.
  2. Mix in the cinnamon powder, egg yolk, sugar, baking powder and flour. Give it a good stir.
  3. Place the the jam in the centre of your batter once the batter’s completely mixed together,
  4. Microwave on full power for about 45-50 seconds. Again this would vary depending on the power of the microwave being used. But be sure to stay close to your mug and avoid it overflowing. Once the top is hard to touch, your Mugnut is ready.
  5. Garnish with a bit of cinnamon sugar and add some extra jam on top (optional).
