This PB&J mug was so comforting! I'm not usually a peanut butter lover, but I wanted something warm, soft, and sweet. This was perfect! I added some frozen blackberries to go with the jam and definitely recommend :)
Made all of the PUL mug cakes various times- they are UNFAILABLE*!
Even replacing the wheat flour for rice or corn flour or mixing up the taste-giving-ingredient (chocolate, berries, banana) for whatever else is at hand - it still works perfectly and tastes glorious.
*(correct word infallible)
This recipe is a hug in a mug 😋
PB lovers should absolutely try this and I am sure you will make it again and again 😃♥️
At first, I was truly sceptic with the texture, the dough didn't seem promising but I was so wrong. It tasted so nice and I highly appreciate there is no added sugar. Also since it was the bottom of my peanut butter jar, I added a bit more milk because it had a thicker consistency but it tasted great in itself 😁
I love your recipes!!
Can i use normal oven to make this dessert?
Thisis now my favourite dessert ever and withthe home made chia jam its way healthier then a lot of puddings, but will all the satisfaction!
Thank you so much for this recipe and the dynamic list of ingredients! I really enjoyed preparing this mini cake. The webpage looks amazing and is very useful at the time of actually cooking. Keep up growing and improving :)
Delicious! Had to sub the all purpose flour for cassava flour for migraine reasons, and just added a little more milk and about a tbsp of cotton flower oil to get the cake batter texture, but the end result was amazing.
I would love to try the recipe but not sure what would be considered as a large mug here. Can you give me some reference?
I would love to make these great mug cakes but I don't have a microwave.
Is it possible with a normal oven ?
thanks from Italy
Great recipe! I added fresh berries and banana after I microwaved it. I can't wait to try the other mug cakes.
omg this!!! so delicious and fluffy 🤍
I love this recipe so much. I keep making it over and over again.❤️❤️ Ιt also helped me with forgoing store-bought sweets when I have late night sugar cravings. Ι personally always add a teaspoon of cocoa powder which makes it even more decadent.😋 Thanks for the great recipe and lots of love to the PUL team.💕
Thank you for the great site and love for plants too! The only thing is I never use microwave because it's not good for you. How could this be adapted for a normal oven?
Thanks from Canada!

Greetings from Slovakia.
Delicious mug cake recipe. Approved by me and my husband!
I was so excited to try this recipe, but my cake exploded over the top of the mug 20 or 30 seconds into the cooking time. Do you have any idea what I might have done wrong? I don't know if it had to do with my mug size (I used a dish that was wider but shallower) or with my microwave, but I checked that it was at 900 watts.
Even though it made a mess, the cake itself still tasted delicious! Thanks for sharing this recipe. :)
Delicious! My son and I loved it. Thanks !
It was yummy, although a bit too peanut-butter-y for me. I'd add a bit less of it or replace it with something else or even don't add it at all but I don't know if it would work.
