Chocolate PB cake in a mug from scratch!

It's one of those rainy and dreary here in New England.  It has been raining for days in fact, so I needed to eat something sweet. ;)  I love mug cakes because then I don't have leftover cake lying around for me to binge on.  Win win!  This is perfect if you live alone too, because it makes one perfect serving. Anyway I found this recipe and it really hit the spot!  It only took a few minutes to make too.  You're going to LOVE this!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Mud Cake

2 tablespoons flour 
1 tablespoon of sugar
2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder 
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch salt
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon oil 
handful of chocolate chips
1 Tbs peanut butter or nutella

In a small mug combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt until no lumps remain. 

Stir in the milk and oil until smooth. Make sure to scrape your fork around the edges of the cup so you don't get pockets of dry flour. 

Mix in the chocolate chips. Drop the peanut butter into the chocolate mix and push it down to submerge.

Bake in the microwave on high for 1 minute. 

You may need to add or subtract 5-10 seconds depending on your microwave, but don’t be tempted to overcook or it will be dry. It should still be moist on the bottom and will continue cooking as it sets.  That's it!  This is so delicious!  I'm not sure of the calorie content, but it's such a small amount...just  enjoy yourself!
