1-minute Peanut butter mug cake

To cheer up a rather boring Sunday evening, I tried this interesting recipe which I had bookmarked long back, after seeing it in . If you have got peanut butter or any nut butter at home then you can whip up this delicious cake in just 2 minutes (preparation and baking time included!!). It was such a pleasure to see my dad enjoying the cake, forgetting all his office worries. Do try it out and cheer up your loved ones :)

  • Maida - 2 tablespoons
  • Sugar - 2 tablespoons
  • Peanut butter - 1.5 tablespoons
  • Baking powder - a pinch (or 1/8th teaspoon)
  • Milk - 2-3 tablespoons

  1. Take a clean microwave safe mug. Add all ingredients to the mug and mix well till you get a smooth thick batter. If you find the batter too thick, then add 3 tablespoons of milk, else 2 tablespoons would suffice. I added 2.5 tablespoons
  2. Clean the inside edges of the mug and also level the batter with the back of a spoon
  3. Microwave it on high for 1 minute. If you feel it needs to bake more, then microwave it for an extra 15-20 seconds. Mine took 1 minute 15 seconds
  4. That's it! Allow your cake to cool for a minute or two and then dig in! :) 

  • If you want to de-mould your cake, then grease the mug with oil before adding the batter
  • You could use creamy or crunchy peanut butter

  1. I put jam in the centre-I don't like plain cakes-it was quite nice.
