Peanut Butter Mug Cake

G'day! I feel like talking {EHEEMMMMMM. Typing.} in an Australian accent. Don't judge. :) 

Thankfully, I'm feeling so much better today. Well there's still a little bit of a tummy-funk goin' on down there, but other than that, muchos bueno! {which is much better in spanish…} 

Australian and Spanish? Austranish. 

Ok. Enough 'a that. I was a guest over at White Lights on Wednesday last week and shared this goodness. 

Peanut butter. Cake. Made in like 3 minutes. I really don't think I need to say more, do I? Nope. 




Peanut Butter Mug Cake
recipe from//Kirbie's Cravings

4 tablespoons all purpose flour
4 tablespoons white granulated sugar
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 egg
3 tablespoons peanut butter
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil

Combine all ingredients in an oversized coffee mug. Whisk well with a small whisk until smooth. Microwave on high for 1 1/2 minutes and then take it out to check to see if it is done. If not, continue to microwave in thirty second intervals. Mine was done at 2 minutes. You don’t want to overcook it or it will become rubbery. You can also make this into two smaller-sized mugs. You can mix the batter all in one mug and then pour half into another mug. Make sure you cook each one individually.

  7. Oh my goodness, I LOVE eating things out of cups/mugs for some reason, so I'm SO happy I found your blog! It's taking a lot of self-control for me not to make this peanut butter cake at midnight right now.... ;)

  8. I added a drizzle of chocolate syrup over the top. Very yummy afternoon treat. I know it's got some protein and calcium somewhere it there, so I'm good :)

  10. Just made this, and it is soooo good!! (With a big glass of milk, of course.)

  11. Oh, and yeah it is a lot of calories if you make the whole thing, but it would be impossible to eat over half. I ate like 1/4 of it, and I was stuffed!

  12. This was so delicious. I had thought that a mug wouldn't be enough so I made a double batch in a bowl... I didn't eat even a quarter of it. I am so full but it was so delicious.

    2. I agree. I made mine in a bowl too. Only ate half. My kids love all of your single size mug cake/cookies! Plus, they can easily make it themselves. Another benefit is that I'm not tempted to eat the leftovers of a whole batch of cookies or cake!

  13. You are aware that 4 T = 1/4 c., right? Might help with the measuring.

  14. I made a LOW CALORIE HEALTHY version of this PB cake for myself. I'm positive the regular fattening recipe is WAY better (of course)! That's what my kids say ;) But, I can't afford to eat like that. So did a little experimenting. I replaced PB with the Powdered PB2 (you can purchase this product through Amazon). Added one Tablespoon of real peanut butter. I used 3 TBS wheat flour and 1 TBS white flour. Then I used stevia instead of sugar (or you could use honey). I did not add any oil at all. Next time though I will add some applesauce in replacement of the oil (without oil it was a bit dry). Anyhow, my low cal healthy version was good (not great - but it is healthier - hey, you can't have it all!) It tasted like healthy PB bread. Very filling. I could only eat half.

  15. I don't know what I did wrong... I just made this and it was so nasty. I'll just have to try again I suppose!

  16. Wow, I did not think a cake in the microwave for 90 seconds could be this good. The kids loved it!

  17. I just found this off pintrest and had to try it. I am amazed at how good this turned out. I tweeked it just a bit by adding 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder. I will be making this a lot more. Now I need to try the rest!!!

  18. FYI: mucho mejor = much better in spanish
    also, i made your microwave pear crisp the other day and it was DELICIOUS. i'm going to try it with apples today, i'm expecting it to be equally delicious lol.

  22. We tried this recipe tonight with an adaption. Instead of 3 tablespoons of peanut butter we used 3 tablespoons of butterscotch chips. We melted them with the milk in the microwave for 30 seconds, then added the rest of the ingredients. It was so very tasty!

  23. just made it...put drizzled dark chocolate over top of it....WONDERFUL!!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. As others have said, I added chocolate. Milk chocolate would've been better if I'd had it. My problem is that, when I got to the bottom, some of it was kinda almost burned, while other parts were still gooey and uncooked. Thoughts?

  25. Prepared this in a soup mug. Added chocolate chips on top. Yummy!

  27. I made this tonight in a bowl with 2 tbsp peanut butter, 1 tbsp Peanut Butter & Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter, and a handful of mini chocolate chips.

    I swear, this thing could serve 4! It came out HUGE!

  29. II just made this and i have to say, it is awesome! I didn't use egg because i'm pregnant and don't want to take the chance that the egg doesn't get cooked well, but even without the egg it's still moist and delicious!

  34. I made this tonight for my boyfriend for the first time, and he thought it was strange going in but once it came out and he tried it, he had a big smile on his face like a little kid and wondered into the living room. I on the other hand made mine with Nutella. Takes a little longer, but on so good

  35. I tried this tonight and wrote a review on my blog about it. VERY tasty. Love it. I threw in some peanut butter chips at the last second. It was definitely enough for 2 servings.

  36. I have to say this was FABULOUS! I had heard of the 1 minute mug desserts and fell for the alleged results. I was a bit hesitant to try this but I was looking for one that seemed to be a viable recipe and this seemed to be the best fit.

    I added ingredients in the order they are listed above into a plastic bowl, whisked like crazy, poured it into what I considered an oversized mug put it in the microwave. I started with the 1 1/2 min mark as suggested but I found for my cups, it took 2 1/2 minutes to be finished.

    I was not expecting any decent result and I have to say I was more than pleasantly surprised that this recipe proved me wrong! OMG this was ridiculously delicious! And yes, as others stated, it was HUGE (but I guiltily ate the entire thing with some cream cheese icing.

    This is now a permanent part of my recipe file and will definitely be used for the occasional sweet tooth craving and for special occasions. BEST THING EVER!!!! Now I need to find more that are just as real as this!
