Chocolate Fix! Finally a Moist Mug Cake

IMG_2561Last week, I was hardcore craving chocolate. I love baking, especially baking from scratch, but it was 11pm and I needed my chocolate fix satisfied. When I was in high school, I used to make the microwavable mug cakes that are always circulating around Pinterest. However, I never really found one that I really liked. They always had a weird spongy texture and sometimes they were dry. As a matter of fact, the last mug cake that I tried was so dry that I literally choked! It was pretty bad! So when I found this recipe on the Table For Two Blog, I had to try it! But to my disappointment, I didn’t have all the ingredients! I was missing Nutella, so I decided to tweak it a little! Check out my Chocolate Peanut Butter Mug Cake, or for the original recipe, click the link above.



  • 1/4 Cup of All Purpose Flour
  • 2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon of salt


  • 1/4 cup and 1 tablespoon of milk
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon of creamy peanut butter


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients.
  2. Whisk together milk and vegetable oil until batter is smooth.
  3. Pour batter into a microwave safe mug that’s large enough to allow for cake rising.
  4. Add 1 tablespoon of peanut butter into middle of the batter; do not push down into the mug.
  5. Cook in microwave for 1 minute and 10 seconds.
  6. Carefully remove hot mug from microwave.
  7. Enjoy with a glass of milk or a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

This is perfect for a late night chocolate fix! I love baking brownies but this is pretty close! It’s very rich so get ready for a chocolate explosion in your mouth!
