Microwave Cake Recipe
Peanut Butter and Jelly. That pretty much sums up my childhood right there. How many PB&J’s did I consume as a kid? Too many to count, that’s for sure.
Actually, my favorite was Peanut Butter, Banana and Honey Sandwiches. Those were a real treat! Maybe I’ll have to make a Microwave Mug Cake with that flavor combo next time.
A while back I came across a recipe for Quick Nutella Mug Cake on The Comfort of Cooking. I had never tried a microwave mug cake before because I was skeptical. But this particular Nutella Mug Cake looked delicious. So I gave it a try. And it was tasty! Perfect for my late night sweet cravings.
Since then I have been making all sorts of mug cakes. I’ve made pumpkin cakes, spiced cakes, funfetti cakes and peanut butter cakes.
Microwave Mug Cake is a little dryer and crumbly than regular cake (I ain’t gonna lie). So most of the time I top them with whipped cream or maple syrup to add that moisture. The Peanut Butter Mug Cake was screaming for Jelly instead of whipped cream! I used Strawberry Smucker’s. Use your favorite flavor. Grape Jelly, anyone!?!?
If you are looking for a cake type treat that takes less than 5 minutes to make . . . well, this is for you. And I usually decrease the recipe by half for myself. I just need those 5-6 bites of cake to make my tummy happy.
- 1/4 Cup All Purpose Flour
- 1/4 Cup Peanut Butter
- 1/4 Cup Whole Milk
- 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
- 2 Tablespoons Ultrafine Sugar
- Jelly Flavor of Choice
- In small bowl; mix flour, baking powder and sugar.
- Add peanut butter and milk. Mix until fully incorporated.
- Spray microwavable mug with non-stick. Transfer batter to mug.
- Microwave on high for 60-90 seconds or until middle is done.
- Top with a generous dollop of your favorite jelly and Enjoy!
You can mix batter in mug without spraying with non-stick. This step is just because I'm lazy about dishes and don't like to scrub.
