PB and Chocolate Microwave Cake & The Secret Recipe Club

It's that time of the month again - Secret Recipe Club time!! Let me tell you, this one was a tough one for me... Not because of the blog that I got,, cause I found a bunch of recipes that I wanted to try from here. No... it's the summer and all things obviously go crazy around here during the summer! :) SRC went a little wackadoo for a bit, so we got our assignments a little later then usual... Not a biggie, if it weren't for the fact that we were leaving for vacation in the middle of June and on top of that, my oven gave out!! The part is back ordered so I am still ovenless which is KILLING me - especially when I was all set to try these fabulous looking Cheese Hashbrown Muffins and this yummy looking Blueberry Streusel Coffee Cake!

Lucky for me I had picked out numerous recipes to try and the Peanut Butter and Chocolate Mini Cake required only a microwave!! YAY for me! :) I have made microwave cakes in the past and enjoyed them quite a bit so I was excited to see how this one would turn out. I was not disappointed... They were super yummy and wonderful to have warm out of the microwave! Thanks for the fun recipe, my kids and I loved it! Sorry for the horrid picture = obviously my camera and I need to have a talk also...

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Microwave Cake
(recipe found at

1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 heaping tablespoon flour
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1 tablespoon chocolate chips

In a small bowl, whisk together all ingredients except chocolate chips. Add chips and stir well. Pour into greased ramekin, cup or mug. Microwave for 45-60 seconds or until done. Be sure to get a container that will be big enough or you might end up with this...

and while the kids still loved biting it off the container - it might not be the presentation that you are looking for! :)

Tip onto plate and enjoy! (Or just eat it right out of the cup like we did! :)


  1. I love the photo of your little one enjoying this treat. What a cutie! Great choice for the SRC!!

  3. Just made this immediately after reading this post. I added some dark cocoa powder to mine, and "frosted" it with Nutella. It was good!

  4. Oh my. I completely forgot, I made this. I must make it again. I am glad that it saved the day for you.

    I have been using my microwave because of the heat and made a different microwave cake. I am glad you reminded me.

    Thanks for baking from my blog. I must visit here, more often.

  5. Love the picture of your son. These sound like a great idea, even if my oven is working because it is certainly HOT here :)

    Thanks for the sugar cookie recipe. I certainly enjoyed having your blog this month!

  6. Poor Raina-what luck! Well I'm glad you found a recipe you could make in the microwave-this sounds great and looks nice and moist. Great job pulling through despite the odds. :)

  7. I think microwave cakes are great for a quick cake fix! I can't even imagine what I would do without my oven, so I feel for you! But you still managed to come out shining with this recipe!

  8. Looks yummy. What a fun blog check out my blog if you get a min and have not already :).

    Have a great day

  9. I love making these litle cakes. Just right when you want a little something sweet. We call them World's Most Dangerous Cake because it can be made in a just a few minutes. But adding PB - genius!!

  10. Thanks for giving step by step process of chocolate Microwave Cake recipe and very easy preparation. This Microwave recipe is very attractive and great taste.
