Warm, fluffy and oh so delicious!

My family loves dessert.  My family loves things that are easy.  My family loves this microwave mug cake.  It’s really easy and really tasty!

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Mug Cake

Recipe makes 1 mug worth (standard coffee mug)

Dry Ingredients

1/4 cup all purpose flour

2 tbsp sugar

2 tbsp cocoa powder (unsweetened)

1/4 tsp baking powder

1/8 tsp salt

“Wet Ingredients”

1/2 single-serve packet of instant coffee

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 tbsp milk

1/4 cup milk

2 tbsp vegetable oil

Extra Ingredients

1 tbsp peanut butter (creamy)

2 tbsp semi-sweet chocolate chips


1. Mix dry ingredients together in small bowl.  Put aside.

2. Mix instant coffee with vanilla and 1 tbsp milk.  Put aside

3. Mix rest of milk and vegetable oil together in a measuring cup. Mix the coffee mixture into the milk and then add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.  Stir until well mixed and most lumps are gone.

4. Pour batter into microwave-safe mug.  Drop peanut butter into center of batter in mug.  Sprinkle chocolate chips on top.

5. Cook in microwave on high for 70 seconds. (This is using a 1,000W microwave).

6. Remove from microwave and enjoy with a spoon or a fork (and maybe a tall glass of milk)!

This takes about 5 minutes to prepare and 1 minute to cook.  Not too bad for a warm, gooey, ‘baked’ dessert on a weeknight.
