Almond Butter Mug Cake

This almond butter mug cake is creamy and smooth, just like the spread.

I am really enjoying almond butter. I just wish it wasn’t so expensive. I recently purchased some natural almond butter from Costco because it was cheaper than the tiny jars at the grocery store. I usually prefer the taste of natural nut butters over the more processed ones, but I have to say, it was a huge pain trying to mix the oils in the almond butter. It was extremely hard to stir, especially with such a big container. And in the end, my butter was definitely not evenly mixed.

While I like eating natural nut butters, baking-wise, the one I like to use is Jif Almond butter. I’ve found that the consistency is just right. Not too thin, not too dry. And it makes cakes and cookies taste delicious.

I’ve already made this cake three times this week. It tastes especially good warm right out of the microwave. If you’re a fan of almond butter, definitely give this mug cake a try.

  • Combine all ingredients into an oversized microwave safe mug that holds at least 8oz of liquid. Mix batter with a small whisk until smooth.

I recommend JIF brand almond butter for the best results.

  1. Just made it . Added cinnamon and a pinch of salt. DELICIOUS one of the best I’ve ever made!!!!

  2. Your mug cake recipes have literally changed the way I look at food and cooking. I’ve always loved cooking everything under the sun even though I dont/can’t eat most of it myself but I’ve never come across such easy and delicious microwave recipes. My family are my guinea pigs of course and they adored this and other mug cakes I made them tonight! I will definitely be making these for our house warming party!
