I mentioned in my last post that I might have a little update…and clearly I do. Earlier this week I found a fun recipe that I wanted to try, and last night, I did.
Peanut butter cake. With chocolate chips. In a coffee cup. In my microwave. It was DELICIOUS.
Unfortunately, this is a horrible picture. I forgot until literally the last bite that I wanted to write about it, and only then did I discover that my camera has died. Anyways, so this not so great picture was taken with my phone. Oh well.
I just really love cake. That seems like a silly thing to say because in my experience, almost everybody loves cake. But how many college kids can have cake whenever they want to? I can. Yeah. That’s right.
Here, have a recipe!
Peanut butter mug cake (adapted from this recipe)
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 heaping tablespoon flour
2 tablespoons peanut butter
However many chocolate chips you want, if you want them
1. Dump everything into a biggish coffee mug. Stir until more or less smooth. (Alternately, mix everything in a bowl and then dump into a mug. It’s really up to you.)
2. Microwave the cake for about 1 minute. After it hits the 30 second mark, the cake will start puffing out over the top of the mug, so you’ll need to stop the microwave every few seconds…which gets a bit tedious but it’s so worth it!
The top will look gooey and not at all done–but I promise that underneath, the cake is all cakey and delicious. Yummmmmmmmmm…
