MONDAY RECIPE POST - CHOCOLATE-PEANUT BUTTER MUG CAKE

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 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.

  8. I am going to try this. Many thanks! We live "out in the country" and this might work (maybe too much?) When we are "in town" we sometimes buy just a slice of something sweet to bring home. That way we don't have an entire cake or pie.

    1. Hi Jacqueline, this is very satisfying for when I get a sweet tooth and don’t want to over indulge :) we do the same thing as there is a dessert we like to buy. It has two small puff pastries in one package, one plain (for hubby), and one with a chocolate coating on the top (for me), both with a delicious cream inside. It is just enough and not too much.

    1. Hi Dorothy, this is such a small dessert and just right for two people. I usually leave half to have the next day. Gregg likes licorice and I can't stand the stuff ;) but chocolate and peanut butter? Oh yum!
