Here are some super yummy microwave mug cakes that I've been obsessed with lately, as well as everyone else in the world!  I hope that these make good eye candy!  Oh, and btw... I'm warning you... you might want to have self control and not read these recipes... they are pretty dangerous because the ingredients are simple and they take less than a commercial break to make... Don't say I didn't warn you!  

Peanut Butter Cake and Chocolate Brownie:

Peanut Butter Cake:  

- 4Tblsp Flour
- 4Tblsp Sugar
- 1/4tsp Baking Powder
- 1Tblsp Sour Cream
- 3Tblsp Peanut Butter
- 3Tblsp Milk
- 3Tblsp Oil

Combine all the ingredients and whisk well with a fork.  Microwave for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.  Be sure to use an oversized mug because it will double in size!  A better idea would be to split this recipe into two mugs!


- 2Tblsp Oil
- 2Tblsp Water
- 1/4tsp Vanilla
- Dash of Salt
- 2Tblsp cocoa
- 4Tblsp Sugar
- 4Tblsp Flour

Mix the wet ingredients well, then add the dry ingredients.  Whisk well with a fork then microwave for 60-90 seconds.  (The center will be just slightly molten.)  I didn't have chocolate chips, but next time I am definitely adding some to the top!

***Variation***  Add 1Tblsp Water and 1Tblsp Peanut Butter to the brownie cake.  (May take longer to microwave.)

Chocolate "Muffin" Cake:

Mix the following dry ingredients together- 1 tbsp. + 2 tsp. cocoa, 3 tbsp. flour, 1/8 tsp. salt, 1 tbsp. + 1 tsp. sugar, 1/4 tsp. baking powder

Add the following wet ingredients- 2-3 tsp. oil, 3 tbsp. milk, 1/2 tsp. vanilla

Microwave for 40 seconds, then in increments of 5-10 seconds until it's done.  (It took mine about 55 seconds.)

Molten Cinnamon Amaretto Cake:


4 Tablespoons Flour
4 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
1 Tablespoon Cocoa Powder
Cinnamon To Taste (This is a single serving, so it won't need much)
Cap-full of Vanilla Extract (Probably about 1/2 teaspoon?)
2 Tablespoons Oil
3-4 Tablespoons Amaretto

So just mix all of the ingredients together.  Start by adding 3 Tablespoons of Amaretto, and then if the batter is too thick, add more.  (It shouldn't be thin like pancake batter, but it shouldn't be thick like cookie dough either.)

Once it's all mixed up microwave it for 50-60 seconds.  Start with a short amount of time, maybe 40 seconds (depending on how powerful your microwave is, mine is week so it took 60 seconds) and work your way up in 5 or 10 second intervals.  The longer you do it, the more it will set up, but that also means it will become dryer.

Chocolate Rum Cake:

4 Tblsp Flour
4 Tblsp Packed Brown Sugar
3 Tblsp Rum (or water or milk or coffee or any liquid)
2 Tblsp Cocoa Powder
2 Tblsp Oil (or melted butter for a richer taste)

Microwave for about 60 seconds... and done!
