One-Minute Peanut Butter Cake

I'm serious!

This is one of those recipes you wished you'd had long ago, so you could have been enjoying it all this time.

I honestly don't know where I saw it, or else I would give credit.

This makes a single serving, and really, in only one minute.

It can satisfy a sweet tooth late at night, or it makes a great afternoon snack too.  Any time you get a hankerin' for a little bit of something sweet.

If you don't have a ramekin (this raises quite a bit so make sure there's plenty of room for it to expand) use a coffee mug.  One with a rounded bottom works best.

Add a few chocolate chips if you'd like. It's great either way.

I know from experience....

(From The Better Baker)

(Serves 1)

1 egg, beaten
1 Tb. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 hp. Tb. all purpose flour
2 Tb. peanut butter
1 tsp. milk
1 Tb. powdered sugar (give or take)

In small bowl, whisk together egg, brown sugar, baking powder, peanut butter and flour. 

Pour batter into a greased ramekin.  Microwave for 30 seconds.
(Check - if not done, add a few seconds at a time).

Mine took 40 seconds and my microwave is 1100 watts.

While the cake is microwaving, stir together milk and powdered sugar, adding more powd. sugar if necessary to thicken frosting.

Remove cake from ramekin (or not) pour frosting over top.

Pour yourself a nice cold glass of milk, grab a spoon or fork, and enjoy!!

Then put the recipe somewhere you can find it again quickly next time...because there will be a next time! =)
