One Minute Peanut Butter Cake

Picture this scene: it’s 8:30 in the evening. The sky is just starting to get dark outside your living room window. You ate a delicious, healthy and veggie-filled dinner a few hours ago and now you are ready to sit down to the most recent episode of So You Think You Can Dance and dive into a decadent plate of dessert.

Oh wait, you have no dessert.

No chocolate, no cookies, no ice cream, no cake, no pie, not even a Jordan almond. What’s a girl to do?

Well she’s to go to her microwave.

You can make a delicious, fluffy, moist peanut butter cake in your microwave in about one minute (30 seconds mixing, 30 seconds zapping). It even has frosting (as any good cake does). This is portion control and convenience at their greatest.

The options are also pretty endless. Toss in a tablespoon of chocolate chips for a chocolatey and gooey kick (like I did) or a few peanuts for an earthy crunch. Or leave it plain for the quickest and easiest route to dessert o’clock.

  1. I’m only a 12-year-old and this was amazing I did have a little help from my mother but it was mostly me and it was delicious!

  2. I just made it, and it was delicious!!, i microwaved it for 30 sec and it was still gooey so i put it in for another 20 sec and it turned out great. i skipped the frosting because it really did’t need it, it was just perfect as it was 🙂
