What goes better together than Peanut Butter and Jelly? Nothing. When I saw this recipe in 5-Minute Mug Cakes: Nearly 100 Yummy Microwave Cakes I knew I had to try it, along with all of the other recipes, but this is the one I started with.
Dessert rarely gets made around here unless we’re having company over, for the simple reason that we can’t – or at least shouldn’t – finish it all. And nobody likes leftovers. Mug cakes are the perfect solution to this little problem.
The fact that there were only 6 ingredients required was also appealing to me. I tend to avoid recipes using a lot of different ingredients. The other thing that makes this a clear winner is that you’re stirring and cooking all in one mug. No dirtying extra bowls or pans.
Other recipes in this book I plan on trying soon include:
- Coconut Lover’s cake
- Strawberries and Cream Cake
- Peanut butter cup cake
- Kahlua chocolate cake
- There are even skinny mug cakes for when the diet starts on January 1st.
