I’m in a rush today, I just got home from class and I have to leave again to meet my mom and go to my boyfriend’s apartment. I had a few minutes to spare though and I’m craving chocolate so I decided to make a little quick single serve dessert.
The topping kind of looks like an egg, but no worries that is just greek yogurt and a dollop of peanut butter!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake – single serve
[inspired by Chocolate Covered Katie’s recipe]
- 1 tablespoon plus 2 tsp cocoa powder
- 3 tablespoons AP flour
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 2 tsp sugar
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp stevia
- 1 Tbsp peanut butter (I used Better’n Peanut Butter for lower calories)
- 3 Tbsp Almond milk
- 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
- a few dark chocolate chips
- 2-3 Tbsp nonfat greek yogurt (plain)
- 1 Tbsp Peanut Butter
Combine dry ingredients and mix very, very well.
Add liquid, stir. Add peanut butter and stir again.
Then transfer to a little dish, ramekin, or even a coffee mug. Put a few chocolate chips on top.
Microwave about 40-60 seconds (depending on how powerful your microwave is. I did a full minute.). If you don’t want to eat it straight out of the dish, be sure to spray your dish first (and then wait for the cake to cool before trying to remove it).
Top with nonfat yogurt and PB. The combination makes it into a nicely sweet & salty cake for one. Enjoy!
Question for you:
How much do you rely on a microwave?
I tend not to rely on it too much unless it’s just for reheating in my apartment, this is actually my first dessert made using a microwave. My parents, on the other hand, are so against it, they threw out their microwave a few years ago and just use the stove or oven to heat any leftovers and for other cooking/baking. What are your thoughts?
