About a year ago a friend of mine sent me a recipe for 5-minute mug cake. I saved the recipe in a folder on my desktop and never tried it. Well, about three nights ago I was having a major sweet-tooth break down. I needed sugar in my system. Pronto. So, remembering this little recipe I had stashed away (but was unable to find because my laptop broke 8 months ago) I searched the internet for the perfect mug cake recipe.
The recipe I found was for vanilla mug cake. I made it but it lacked sweetness and…taste. I was weary to try again, thinking I’d done something wrong the first time, when I substituted in my own ingredients to flavor up the cake. Well, it turned out a million times better! So, I’m going to share with you my secret to delicious mug cake that definitely tastes good.
PB&C (Peanut Butter & Cinnamon) 5-Minute Mug Cake
4 Tbs flour
2 rounded Tbs sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
3 tsp cinnamon
4 Tbs milk
1 Tbs oil
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 large spoonful peanut butter
In a coffee mug (I just use a 8 oz. but whatever floats your boat) and fill it with the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. With a fork, mix it all together.
Pour in the milk, oil, and vanilla. Mix it all together. Make sure to scrape the flour from the bottom and sides of the mug.
Add the peanut butter to the mixture, stirring it evenly in. Tip: Melt the peanut butter to make it easier to stir in.
Pop mug in the microwave for 2 minutes. Let cool. Garnish as you see fit.
Voila! You have lovely cake that only took you 5 minutes to make!
