Peanut Butter and Jelly Mug Cake

Readers, I had a cake craving tonight.  It came over me like nothing on earth.  I wanted sweet, sweet cake… and fast.  Thus leading me to the microwave.

I’ve never made a microwave mug cake before – it still feels “dirty” making a cake in the microwave but using one mug, no bowls, store cupboard ingredients and spoon, with a result in less than 5 minutes ticked every box tonight.

Aaaand… it’s made without flour, so suitable for our gluten free friends as well.

Thanks to Kirbie Cravings for the base recipe, which I added to.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Cake 

Ingredients (makes 1 cake)

2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
1 tablespoon caster sugar
1 large egg
1/8 teaspoon baking powder (gluten free)
6 x ½ teaspoons of jam of your choice


  1. Spoon peanut butter, sugar, egg and baking powder into your microwave proof mug.  Whisk to combine to a smooth mixture.
  2. Add your jam at various points in the mix and add a little on the top.
  3. Microwave for 1 minute at 800w.  If it’s not quite ready, put back in for another 30 secs.  Be careful not to overcook.
  4. Remove, from microwave, cool for a moment and eat!
