Chocolate Mug Cake & Peanut Chantilly

If I had followed the calendar to the letter, today I would have made pancakes ...

But not want!

I decided instead to make THE recipe of the moment, the Mug Cake.

Another funny thing from the USA (!), Which consists in making in 5 minutes flat a delicious cake contained in a coffee cup and cooked in the microwave.

Something to satisfy an urgent desire…. of chocolate !!!

For fun, I made a peanut flavored whipped cream, which I placed on the top of each mug cake. It's a flavor duo that I really appreciate, but you already know that ...


Recipe for 2 Mug-Cakes:

{no need for a measuring cup, here the proportions are made with a teaspoon (cc) or tablespoon (cs), to go faster!}

- Melt 4 tbsp of unsalted butter in the microwave, set aside for the rest.

- In a container, mix 1 tsp of liquid vanilla, 2 eggs and 4 tbsp of powdered sugar.

- Separately, mix the dry ingredients: 4 tbsp of flour, 6 tbsp of cocoa powder, 1/4 tsp of baking powder and a pinch of salt. Then add this mixture to the previous mixture.

- Pour in the melted butter, mix one last time, and fill 2 mugs with this dough.

- Cook in the microwave for 1 or 2 minutes (1 minute = fondant, 2 minutes = well done). The duration is to be adapted to your own oven of course.

- Then make the peanut whipped cream: whip 20cl of whole liquid cream (30% fat) into a firm whipped cream with 2tbsp caster sugar. Once the whipped cream is well taken, add 2 tbsp of peanut butter previously relaxed with a fork. Whisk again, and place on each mug-cake.

Enjoy without waiting!

    This recipe looks funny to me, even if I admit the appearance is less "sexy" than other preparations;)

    Great idea!!! For those little evenings when we crave chocolate and are too lazy to go out all the stuff, like Sunday night lol.
    I absolutely have to think about buying 30% cream, I usually take light liquid cream and suddenly I'm blocked every time I have a little craving and the desire to achieve a of your recipes!

    I tried and I failed again lol (not type please). It was overcooked, I will try again by lowering the power of the oven, I think mine is at 900w, it must be a lot. It was good anyway, not too sweet, that's what I like about your recipes!

    This recipe looks delicious. But is it possible to replace cocoa with squares of chocolates?
    In any case the blog is very beautiful and very well done, with recipes that make you want to.
    I will add it to my favorites because I like it a lot ^^
    Good continuation

    I tested it yesterday. He is very good. For me 1mn to MO was sufficient the first cup I cooked it 1m30s c was overcooked.
    I had a question: if I want to bake it I should put how much time / power in your opinion?

    It looked tantalizing, but after realization it was a failure, very pasty, not chewy and even less melting. I'm so disappointed! I probably missed something… I think that the quantities indicated in cs and cc have something to do with it: a rounded cs has nothing to do with a level cs in terms of quantity. Perhaps more precise indications should be given? Anyway, it did not diminish my desire to test other recipes from this blog, which is a real call to gluttony!
