pinterest failed me, Big Dairy to the rescue
The essence of the "mug in the microwave" cooking trend really comes down to "GDI I want cake/mac-and-cheese/brownie/etc" and I dont want to invest time and energy into actual baking.

Which is why I object on moral grounds to mug cake recipes that call for mugs of unusual size or things like "vanilla bean paste" -- conveniently linked to her other post about how to make same, from scratch.

Nope nope nope.

Easy, fast, and from stuff always in the pantry, or gtfo.

We did eventually find a non-stupid vaguely similar to a snickerdoodle cage recipe (alledgedly a doughnut cake.) which has potential. I will note that it was  Land O Lakes recipe; I'm noticing that brand recipes tend to be straightforward and tasty.

I agree on the ingredients part, but everyone should own a Mug Of Unusual Size.

I have Mugs of Unusual Size! Just not the unusual size specified in the recipe.

How big did they want?

14 oz, straight sides, and microwavable; I don't have any mugs that are all three of those at once.

Hmm. Not absolutely sure on the capacity, but I think the big mug I got at the paint-your-own-pottery place qualifies.

Huh. Will have to try this. I found a chocolate peanutbutter one that was fantastic: http://www.yammiesnoshery.com/2012/03/chocolate-peanut-butter-mug-cake.html

I dunno if you do pinterest but I have a whole "eating for one" board of these. The "chocolate chip cookie in a cup" is the one we're trying next: http://www.number-2-pencil.com/2012/03/06/chocolate-chip-cookie-in-cup/
