Gluten-Free Peanut Butter, Banana, and Chocolate Brownie Ugly Mug Cake
Gluten-Free Peanut Butter, Banana, and Chocolate Brownie Ugly Mug Cake--- Sometimes I have a sweet tooth that only chocolate will satisfy. I go to the kitchen, open the refrigerator door, close the door (nothing), open the refrigerator door hoping something has miraculously appeared in there......and of course, this happens around 10ish at night. Tonight, I put together the yummiest combination ever........ Peanut Butter, Banana, and Chocolate! One Caveat: I call this Ugly Mug Cake because it is frankly,,,not pretty. However, that being said some of the most delicious desserts are not beautiful! INGREDIENTS: (This is enough for 2 mugs, the kids eat mine if I don't make an extra) 1/2 cup Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Mix (We like King Arthur) 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 cup milk 2 tbsp cocoa powder, unsweetened pinch of salt 2 tbsp butter, melted 2 tbsp peanut butter (Jiffy Natural specifies gluten free on jar) 2 tsp gluten free vanilla 1 ripe banana, mashed 2 tbsp butter, melted 1 egg INSTRUCTIONS: In a small mixing bowl combine the flour, sugar, salt and cocoa and mix until it is only one color. Add the milk, egg, butter, vanilla, banana, and peanut butter and stir until smooth (of course, there will be some lumps due to the banana). Place the mug into the microwave and heat on high for 2 minutes, check the mug cake and if not quite done put back in microwave for 10 seconds at a time...2 minutes was perfect for a 1000 watt microwave. Viola! Ugly Mug Cake! To paraphrase C. Joybell C. (GF) cake is happiness! If you know the way of the (Gf) cake, you know the way of happiness! If you have a (GF) cake in front of you, you should not look any further for joy!
