Satisfying your sweet-tooth

How many times have you had a sugar craving, only to find out that there’s nary a cookie nor a cupcake nor a candy bar in the house? Now that’s not always a bad thing, mind you…sometimes the only thing that prevents me from ingesting too much sugar is the fact that I made a point not to buy or make sweets in the first place. But other times, INeedSomethingSweetAndIneedItRightNOW! Hahaha! 😀 If you’re the same as me and feel like you need to cheat a little, then don’t I have a perfect solution for you 🙂

What is that you might ask??? I made a Snickerdoodle Mug Cake. It was very light and delicious. This Cake bakes up in the microwave in just one minute, yielding a warm, cinnamon-sugary treat that will satisfy any sweet tooth!

Snickerdoodle Cake Mug

Ingredients

1/4 C + 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 C. milk, at room temperature
2 tbsp. unsalted butter
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

For layering/topping:
1 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon

Directions

1. Melt butter in a microwave safe bowl then add milk and vanilla and stir well. Set aside. In another small bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon until thoroughly, completely combined, with no streaks of any ingredients remaining.

2. Gradually mix flour mixture with milk butter, and vanilla until batter is smooth. Into a 14-ounce (or larger) microwave-safe mug with straight sides, scoop a big spoonful of batter, then sprinkle with a spoonful of cinnamon sugar. Alternate layers, ending with cinnamon sugar.
Microwave on high for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, or until cake is ready to your liking. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes before serving.

Peanut Butter lovers rejoice

I recently just discovered these fantastic single serve desserts. And a few weeks ago, I made my first one death by chocolate which turned out to be awesome. It inspired to make another one and I, of course, will make more in the future lol. Like the one, I’m about to show you.

Consuming cookies are very addicting! Here are a few of my favorites: sugar, chocolate chip, and snickerdoodles. As some of you might notice in my other post for peanut butter & chocolate lovers, I also am a big fan of peanut butter, and that certainly means I like peanut butter cookies. My enthusiasm for them wanted me to teach you how to make a cookie in a mug.

So…here’s some yummy goodness! 🙂

 

5 Minute Peanut Butter Cookie

Ingredients

1 Tbsp peanut butter

1 Tbsp butter

1 Tbsp white sugar

1 Tbsp brown sugar

pinch vanilla

pinch salt

One egg yolk

3 tbsp flour

1 Tbsp salted peanuts, chopped
Directions

In a microwave safe bowl or mug, place peanut butter and butter together and microwave for about 30 seconds, until melted – or almost melted – and then stir to combine. Stir in sugars. Then stir in the pinch of vanilla and salt. Mix in egg yolk until well combined. Stir in 3 Tbsp flour. Sprinkle with peanut. Microwave for 35-50 seconds, until done. Start checking at 35 seconds to see if it’s done. (Mine took 50 seconds, but it will depend on the power of your microwave) Let cool for a minute or two and then enjoy!

Can you imagine how good this would be with a scoop of ice cream? Ooooh! Reece’s peanut butter cup ice cream!! I would be in peanut butter heaven.
