I have had this recipe for a long time and have shared it before, but I thought it worth repeating on this blog.  It is great for when you want an occasional dessert, is made in a mug - always looking at portion control - and there is enough for two people.  

Chocolate Peanut Butter Mug Cake 
Makes 1 mug cake

3 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1-1/2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
Pinch of salt
3 tablespoons of milk
1-1/2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
1 tablespoon of peanut butter

In a large mug whisk together (with a small whisk or large fork) the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.  Add the milk, vetetable oil and peanut butter.  Whisk until smooth.

Cook in the microwave on high for 1 minute and 10 seconds.  This recipe will rise a lot and then deflate.

Serve immediately.

You can add a scoop of ice-cream to serve or pour on a little English Custard.  When I made it originally I decorated it with sliced banana and a few chocolate chips on the top.  Another time and before putting it in the microwave I mixed in a tablespoon of chopped walnuts.  It is delicious on its own also.
