Last 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!

- 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
- In a medium bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients.
- Whisk together milk and vegetable oil until batter is smooth.
- Pour batter into a microwave safe mug that’s large enough to allow for cake rising.
- Add 1 tablespoon of peanut butter into middle of the batter; do not push down into the mug.
- Cook in microwave for 1 minute and 10 seconds.
- Carefully remove hot mug from microwave.
- 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!
