Microwave Cakes and Variation On A Theme...
Since the theme of this week is quick and easy, that's what I'm doing. Thanks to Ashley, Jessica, Heather, Brandi and Katie, I've started "baking" individual treats in the microwave. Yes, the microwave. Each one of these ladies has made a variation on a theme of quick, easy baked goods and well, I had to jump on the bandwagon, especially with the craziness of these past few weeks. I occasionally bake my oats in the oven, but other than the cake in a cup, I hadn't tried variations...until now. Since last friday, I've made a pumpkin cake (unpictured due to lack of time - devoured while getting Max ready for his play), peanut butter...

gluten free peanut butter...

(you can't even tell this was gluten free)

 and chocolate!

(this was accidentally gluten free and again, you can't tell)

All of which have now started a trend in the house for new flavors of microwave cakes! My vote is for coconut!

Microwave Mini Peanut Butter Cake

1/4 cup quick oats
1/4 cup flour of choice (I used buckwheat, peanut, white wheat, cocoa powder (for the chocolate one) and brown rice - all worked)
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1 egg (or 1 TBSP flax meal mixed with 3 TBSP hot water)
1/4 cup almond milk
1-2 TBSP brown sugar (depending on how sweet you want it)
1 TBSP NuNaturals baking blend or 20 drops vanilla NuNaturals Stevia (again, if you're looking for a muffin go with less, if you're looking for a treat, go with more)

2 TBSP peanut butter (for the peanut butter version)
1/4 cup pumpkin (for the pumpkin version)

Mix your version in a bowl, then put the batter in an oil sprayed microwave cup or bowl (about 1 1/2 to 2 cups). Microwave 2 to 3 minutes. Check it at 2 and then cook it 30 seconds at a time until its done.

What's your favorite flavor in cake? I'm definitely a vanilla girl, but peanut butter is a close runner up!

I'm sharing this on Simply Sugar and Gluten Free's Slightly Indulgent Tuesday.
