double chocolate peanut butter bliss

Tonight for your viewing and snacking pleasure I bring you..... cake in a mug! 
Not just any cake but delicious chocolately chocolate peanut butter bliss in a mug!!

I have to admit Marie's  Two Minute Chocolate chip cake here was the inspiration.  But I decided to change things up a bit and here is what you have.  

Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Bliss
Serves:  A large single serving or just enough for two to share

1 large egg
3 packed TBS of soft light brown sugar
4 1/2 TBS plain flour
1 TBS cocoa powder (not the drinking powder)
1/4 tsp baking powder*2 tsp creamy peanut butter
1 tsp softened butter

3 to 4 TBS chocolate chips
1/4 tsp vanilla

(the peanut butter can be eliminated and butter substituted for a double chocolate cake)

Mix all ingredients together in a large mug. Place in the microwave. Cook on high for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, or just until the top centre of the cake is set. Allow to cool slightly. Serve warm with a sprinkling of powdered sugar, a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or a dollop of real whipped cream.

  2. You are welcome! Do you know what is sad though?? I used to do this in the dorms while in tech school many, many moons ago... and had forgotten about it until last week.

  3. Yum! This looks delish- we used to make cake in the microwave in the college dorms as well. I need to bring this tradition back. ;)

    I don't think I would ever bake things in the microwave again, after I cooked pancake batter I feel like I would have that taste in my mouth.
