One Minute Peanut Butter Chocolate Mug Cake


I love mug cakes. They are so easy to make and require very little clean-up.  It takes a few minutes to put together and only about 1 minute of cooking time. Whenever I’m craving a sweet treat for one, I turn to a mug cake.

The other day I experimented with some other flavor mug cakes. So far I’ve made nutella chocolate mug cake and chocolate mug cake. I set about trying to make a peanut butter chocolate one.

The cake came out a little bit dryer than I had been expecting and the peanut butter flavor wasn’t intense enough for my personal preference. It was still a tasty cake though and really hit the spot. Next time I think I might not mix the peanut butter into the batter, but instead swirl it in.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Mug Cake

Ingredients:

* 4 tablespoons all purpose flour
* 4 tablespoons white granulated sugar
* 1/4 tsp baking powder
* 1 egg
* 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
* 2 tablespoons peanut butter
* 3 tablespoons milk
* 3 tablespoons melted butter

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in an oversized mug. Whisk well with a fork until smooth. Microwave on high for about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. You don’t want to overcook it or it will become rubbery.

  1. What a cool idea! I’ve never tried making a mug cake before, but it’s hard to go wrong with anything that has cocoa powder and peanut butter in it. Do you think you could use oil instead of melted butter in this recipe?

  2. Looks great and sounds really easy but I don’t envy the person that has to wash that mug. It must stick something awful.

    • It’s actually not too bad. If you wash it after you are done and use the scrub portion of the sponge it comes off pretty easily.

  3. I do something similar with protein powder and peanut butter – probably doesn’t taste nearly as good though 😀

  4. I know that it’s weird but I don’t have a mirowave so I only can use oven. Do you think that it could work?

  5. This is delicious! I made it and it was just a little undercooked so it was moist and chewy! yum!

  6. It didn’t fit in my mug, but it tasted amazing.

  7. This was super easy and very yummy. I didn’t have any milk so I just used water and it came out perfect! So happy I found this site with it’s different takes on the mug cake, will definitely be trying the other variations in the future.

  8. I just made this, we didn’t have enough cocoa to put cocoa in it, and we didn’t have baking powder, it works just as well replacing the flour and baking soda with four tablespoons of self raising flour. It is so tasty!

  9. I just made this, minuses the sugar as I’m diabetic and used 3 table spoons of Splenda. I also added a dash of cinamon and vanilla and ate it with a small scoop of sugar free vanilla icecream. Perfect snack!

  10. I put the peanut butter on the bottom instead of in it and it melted all over when fljpped upside down YUMMY!!!!!

  11. This was fantastic! I added about a quarter teaspoon of vanilla and a pinch of salt, and used half brown sugar and half white. I think next time I may reduce the quantities slightly because it turned out being more like two servings of cake than like one, but it was delicious.

  12. Love the mug cakes! Love peanut butter cake. Here is the dry cake solve: No egg. No butter. 3 tablespoons applesauce, 1 tablespoon oil, 3 tablespoons melted peanut butter. 2 tablespoons packed cocoa powder and 5 tablespoons ap flour. Then follow the rest of your recipe. *spray  inside of coffee mug with non-stick spray and mix batter in small bowl first.*

    • thanks for sharing. this is actually quite an old recipe. I’ve definitely figured things out since. If you look through my mug cakes category you’ll find my updated recipes where I’ve solved a lot of previous issues.
