This single-serving cookie butter cake is the perfect sweet treat for one. With just five ingredients, you’ll get a fresh-baked warm cake, with a slightly gooey center.
I’m trying my best not to go too crazy this holiday season. It’s never easy. Holiday parties, cookie exchanges, recipe testing, etc. A close friend of mine is getting married in the beginning of January and I’m excited to be one of her bridesmaids. I’m trying to use this as motivation to not overeat this month.
One good way to not overeat is portion control. Like making this single-serving cookie butter cake. This is a version of my cookie butter mug cake so if you don’t have the patience to wait for this cake to bake, go ahead and check out that recipe. It’s similar, though the texture isn’t quite the same. And I’m currently obsessed with gooey cake centers.
You only need five ingredients for this cake and you can have the batter made in just a few minutes.
- Cookie butter spread
- Baking powder
- All-purpose flour
- Low-fat milk
- Granulated white sugar
How to Make It
Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl and mix well with a small whisk until batter is completely smooth.
Grease an oven-safe mug, bowl, or ramekin that is big enough so that the batter will fill it 2/3 full.
Bake the cake at 350°F for 16 to 18 minutes or until the cake looks completely cooked and center is mostly set.
Cool the cake for a few minutes before eating. I use a spatula to loosen the edges of the cake and then placed mine into a 4 oz ramekin for serving. Add some powdered sugar and fresh raspberries for garnish, if desired.
