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.

One Minute Peanut Butter Cake

Serves One

Like my peanut butter microwave cake? I also make a Nutella chocolate one that comes together just as quickly. Yum!

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 heaping tablespoon flour
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon milk
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar (give or take)

Directions:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together egg, brown sugar, baking powder, peanut butter and flour.
  2. Pour batter into a greased ramekin. Microwave for 30 seconds.
  3. While the cake is microwaving, stir together milk and powdered sugar, adding more powdered sugar if necessary to thicken frosting.
  4. Remove cake from ramekin (or don’t), pour frosting over top.
  5. Enjoy!

    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 🙂
