Lazy Food: Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Mug Cake

This is so perfect if you're craving dessert or something sweet after dinner, it's quick and easy, and little to no mess either. I've made this a few times, and it's delicious!

Lazy Food: Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Mug Cake

Ingredients:

3 tbsp peanut butter (I reckon it works even better with the nutty ones, but either is fine)

1 tbsp and a pinch of granulated white sugar
1 large egg


Directions:

Whisk all ingredients into an oversized mug until batter is smooth and egg is fully whisked in. Microwave for about 1 minute (I did mine for 1:10 and it was perfect). Also, keep your eye on the mug in the microwave in case it does overflow, in which you just stop the microwave for a few seconds, let the batter sink back down, and then let it continue cooking.

Let cake cool a few minutes before eating.


I've done this a few times now, and I can recommend a few topping options:

- Whipped cream and more chopped nuts

- Chocolate sauce

- Ice cream

Or alternatively.... you can have all of them ;P

I got this recipe from Kirby's Cravings, she has heaps of mug cake recipes among other things, I'd recommend you check her out and bookmark her page.

I hope you enjoy this, and let me know how it goes if you try it!

    I beg to differ bread and anything runnier than bread to dip it in is the laziest food.

    What is it with you ameriyanks and your peanuttbutter? I dunno if I should be glad or sad that it didn't spread around the world like your other food - because either I'm missing out or there's perhaps a good reason Europe has said "no thanks."

    What other thing instead of peanut butter would work good with this?
    I like the idea, and though I like peanut butter, I'm 99% sure I wouldn't like this xD

    Are you gonna write more Takes about "Lazy Food"? You should make it a thing :P

    I bet you could use nutella and a starbucks cup, seems more up your alley than peanutbutter.

      I think @Luci92 is trying to kill me with this. It looks so good, but it probably would land me in the hospital. Why do you have to taunt me?

    • 2mo

      Ahaha I'm a tease what can I say :P

    • 2mo

      Why do you have to be a tease? It is so mean.
      *thinks of a way to get back at luci92* *comes up with nothing and gives up*

  • 2mo

    The complicated way is making a creme brûlée. Man it was to die for! Great take!
