Peanut Butter Mug Cake

Peanut Butter Mug Cake


Mug cakes: my new obsession.

Seriously. This week I have made multiple mug cakes. Some have been failures, but the others.. Well those others have turned out great. I think I'm practicing having barely any kitchen appliances for when I move to Toronto. Sadly I think I'm going to have to leave my food processor and ice cream maker here. I almost want to leave behind all my clothing and take all my baking stuff. Is that weird?





But back to this cake. I made this for breakfast (because who DOESN'T want cake for breakfast? Seriously?) and let me tell you, it filled me up and kept me going for a long time.

This might be the best and worst quality of a mug cake. The fact that it takes less than 5 minutes to make a cake ready for you to eat? That's dangerous. This should come with its own warning label.

And this cake is so versatile, you could try it with so many different flavors, and each one of them would probably come out fantastic.

I found this recipe on Kirbie Cravings, and it just spiraled from there. I mean, she is a mug cake QUEEN! I had to stop myself from making all of her mug cakes on the same day. Which would take me FOREVER because it seems like she has made every mug cake there is under the sun!

Whereas me...I have only made the one mug cake before: my Nutella mug cake. This is going to change this summer. I predict that I will be making more mug cakes than I make actual cakes. You know, to stop me from eating an entire cake all by myself. It's swimsuit season after all.

  2. How convenience!? But it could be "dangerous" for me as it is so easy to prepare....I can't probably do a super quick "clean up" before anyone finds out as well! hahaha...

  4. I just moved into my sisters house for a month, left most of my clothes behind and bought a giant box of bakeware instead :) I'm a bit funny about mug cakes, sometimes they're great, sometimes they're horrific. Will have to try this one!

  5. How’s the texture on this? I’m another that can be picky with mug cakes. I think it’s the texture the microwave gives the cake. Looks delicious and moist though.

    They are dangerous when they’re so easy and quick to make. I’m laughing you had it for breakfast though. Don’t even tempt me.

    1. It was very nice and moist. I agree, I have had some very rubbery mug cakes, but I have made it twice in the span of a week. It's just so easy, I couldn't help it!

  7. Cathleen, I think mug cake is a good idea. You can just make one portion and not bake a whole cake. I've got to try it someday :)

  8. I had a tiny obsession with mug cakes too! but after lots of fail attempts, I stopped. LOL. This PB version sounds oh-so-good! I can already taste it!

  9. Every time I see a mug cake, Kathleen, I swoon! I really must try one soon, and a peanut butter one sounds divine! You're moving to Toronto? How exciting!

  10. Mug cakes for the win! Looks pretty tasty, anything with peanut butter makes me happy though! :)

    I know what you mean about leaving your clothes behind over baking stuff, when I moved house, the first thing I set up was the kitchen, and then I realised I'd left my wardrobe boxes at home... I was so anxious to get all my equipment set up!

  12. I agree. Anything this easy and this good should come with a warning label..lol

  16. Hi Cathleen, peanut butter and avocados are my favorite things, not together. Looks amazing, love little cakes like this!

  17. I find mug cakes to be quite dangerous, because the easier they are to make - the more I'll make them! Though...this looks so good. Love all things PB.

  22. Mug cakes are so fun! I often crave just a little something sweet late in the evening, after the kiddos are snuggled into their beds ... I just wish I had a little something for Romeo and me to munch on. Mug cakes are the answer! Love this version!!! :D ~Shelley
