My First Attempt Making A Mugcake

My brother got me a peanut butter cookbook for my birthday in November and last weekend I got around to trying a recipe.

In the past, I had heard of making cakes in the microwave with coffee mugs and this cookbook just happened to have one those such mugcake recipes. I had all the ingredients on hand already and thought it would be a great recipe to try out to christen the new cookbook.

The recipe is for a peanut butter chocolate mugcake and each ingredient calls for under a few tablespoons.

I melted the butters and stirred together the rest of the ingredients and popped it in my microwave.

Once going I needed to watch to make sure it didn’t over rise. For my microwave power that called for stopping and letting it deflate about 2-3 times before it finally finished it’s cooking time.

Once out I slid a knife around the edge and turned it upside down. As you can see in the photos it ended up coming out in two hunks. Which was great as I was going to be splitting it with Ben.

Next step was to melt the delicious peanut butter & chocolate for a topping. Once poured on the cake it was ready to devour, *cough cough* I mean serve… 🙂

Have you made a mugcake before? How did it turn out for you? If you like this blog post please give it a share on facebook. You can find Just A Little Sweet on facebook here.
