Peanut Butter Mini Egg Mug Cake


Okay, well this was pretty much inevitable.

My love for mug cakes and Easter approaching? Yeah. I have no surprises up my sleeve.

The only difference this time around is that the mug cake is actually in a ramekin. Right? I am just full of surprises.

And so is this mug cake! My favourite part about it is digging in and getting a fork full of melted mini eggs. I wait all year for the chance to pig out on mini eggs, and this cake does this time of the year justice in that regard.

In case you were wondering, I have tested out making this cake in a mug AND a ramekin (my favourite kind of research) and I have concluded that the best way to enjoy this is in a ramekin. The mug works perfectly fine, but for the most part, the eggs sink to the bottom. So unless you want cake then a whole bunch of chocolate later on (nothing wrong with that) then I would suggest the more shallow ramekin.

Although I should probably conduct at least three more of these experiments. The number of trials I am working with is far too small, and the mini egg days are limited.

So if you are having a really elaborate Easter dinner, you can make this super quick and easy dessert. Or just skip the dinner altogether and just eat cake and mini eggs all day. I won't judge! It\s a holiday after all!
