What is a mug cake?

Just what it sounds like, a cake in a mug. A cake for 1 made directly in a mug in your microwave 😮. Sounds amazing right? That’s because it is!

The whole cake is made right there in the mug so clean up is a breeze! In fact, if you use the same Tablespoon to measure all the ingredients you only need to wash 3 things!

Mug cakes are ideal for when you want an indulgent sweet treat, but don’t want to make a whole cake!

    How does it rise without soda or baking powder?

      I made this exactly like the recipe called for. The cake didn’t rise at all. So I then made it again without the peanut butter and still no rise🤔🤔🤔I did serve it hot on a plate with whip cream and told my hubby it’s kinda like a creamy fondue type cake. It really did taste good. I’ll make it in a smaller cup. I think it still is a yummy treat.
