Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Mug Cake - Microwave Cake

By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Monday, June 12, 2017

I was totally blank on what to post today. This happens when you either have too many choices or none. In my case, i was somewhere in the middle. I have one post in my drafts but wasn't sure will it fit under this theme, so i wanted to make something else, but was afraid of the sugar. Yes, my kids don't want to eat sweets, and it is only me and my hubby, forced to finish, sometimes it is only my hubby. 
Last week i made mango payasam twice, it was for a get together at home, so it got over in no time.  I made a delicious mango tart for my kiddo's birthday and it too was a great hit with my friends. As usual, i didnt take any pics of the mango tart,  ow have to wait for another gathering to make it, as i have been strictly warned by my better half, not to utter the word dessert!
So with situation like this, what to make the for day 3?? Both the kids started a liking for peanut butter, so i made this quick mug cake with peanut butter for their evening snack. Needless to say, tummy happy, mummy also happy!
The pictures are taken with my iphone, was in a hurry to serve them, will try to do again some other time.

3 tbsp whole wheat flour
2 tbsp cocoa
3 tbsp sugar /brown sugar/ or powdered jaggery(i used jaggery)
1 tbsp oil
5 tbsp water
1 tbsp peanut butter
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp chocoalte chips(optional)


  • In a small bowl, combine  flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder, give it a brisk stir or use a whisk to combine. Add chocoalte chipsto
  • To this add water and oil and mix. Now add half the cake mixture to a microwave safe mug, add peanut butter and top it with the remaining cake batter.
  • Place the mug in the microwave and cook at high for a 1 minute and 20 seconds.  Remove and serve it warm along with your evening coffee

  3. I am with you and I feel for you. In fact, for me it is the other way around. I suppress my cravings because I will be forced to eat off what I make with nobody to share the burden. :/ And Ramadan is the best time to be away from it, at least to an extend... hehe... love this vegan version of mug cake, at least there is little less guilt in eating this...
