Chocolate Peanut Butter Microwave Cake

This is one of my favorite quick desserts and we’ve taught our older two boys how to make it so it’s one of their favorites now too. I first found this several years ago and I go through phases where I want one every night for a few days and then won’t return to it for months. But it is always there, lovingly waiting for me to return to its chocolate peanut buttery goodness. I make it in an oversized capuccino mug which lends itself perfectly to having a scoop of ice cream on top and the saucer underneath helps with the hotness of the mug straight out of the microwave.

We only make one alteration to the original recipe. I use wholemeal self raising flour for the plain flour and the baking powder. 1 ingredient for 2 and a healthier choice! Sounds like a no brainer to me. Go on…2 minutes is all it takes to create this indulgent dessert…
