Peanut Butter and Jelly
The first time I ever had a proper peanut butter and jelly sandwich, Mik made it for me! Growing up, I would always have peanut butter and honey on my sandwiches and thought that peanut butter and jelly was only what people in cartoons would eat!
On our second date, Mik had taken us to a fancy restaurant that served food that you would see in an art gallery. Needless to say, we both came home starving and unsatisfied. Mik then proceeded to make me a slice of toast, with peanut butter and a big scoop of raspberry jelly. My life was changed from that day onwards, and it is still one of my favourite things to eat!
Peanut Butter Mug Cake
I have been pretty obsessed with making mug cake recipes ( Red velvet mug cake, apple pie mug cake) as of late for two main reasons. The first being mug cakes are just SO DARN EASY and quick to make. All you have to do is throw all the ingredients into a mug, mix it up, microwave it and you’re done!
Additionally, this mug cake recipe is extra special because it is just so ultra peanut buttery and has the most incredible texture. It tastes almost like having a soft baked cookie with an oozing jelly centre. Unlike traditonal versions, it is not filled with uneccessary added sugars!
Better than a peanut butter and jelly sandwich
A peanut butter and jelly sandwich takes approximately 1-2 minutes to make, and it is pretty darn good. Because this recipe will take you approximately 5 minutes to make, I had to justify for that extra time 😉 Now believe me when I say this, but it takes PB & J to a whole new level. Think soft, dense & rich peanut butter ‘cake’, with an oozing jelly centre. Every mouthful is delicious and I ended up having to make 3 of these mug cakes for Mik and his brothers!
I replace traditional jelly with mashed up raspberries and it adds such a delicious zing ( and fiber!).
Vegan apple pie mug cake recipe
Peanut butter: You can replace this with any nut/seed butter of choice
Oat flour: I make my own by blending oats in a high speed blender to make a flour consistency.
Egg white: Can be replaced with an additional 2 tbsp almond milk if desired
Milk of choice: I love almond milk
Granulated sweetener of choice : For that added sweetness sweetener of choice!
Raspberries or berries of choice: For that delicious fruity flavor
Baking Powder: Essential for the mug cake to rise
Grease a microwave safe bowl or mug of choice with some oil spray
Add all ingredients above( except for raspberries) and mix well. Smash your raspberries to form a jam and place it in the center of your mug cake
Microwave for 1 minute, in 30 second intervals to prevent the mug cake from rising over.
