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.

    Oh what a fun idea. I've seen a few cakes and oatmeal cookies done in the microwave, but have yet to try them out. Sometimes it's best if I stay away from desserts ;-)

    A single microwave cake could very well become a new addiction for me. Especially the pb version!

    That is so cool! My kids would have a blast making these. Thanks for sharing!

    mmm... great idea! just the perfect little serving!

    OMG YUM! These look amazing. Any time I've tried the microwave cake in a cup thing they've been rubbery. I'm going to have to give your recipe a shot!

    I've always been intrigued by the chocolate cake in a mug that has floated around the interwebz...

    Such a good idea. However, I'm scared of how easy this is- sort of like the box mix I used! ha ha

    You know I'm totally going to go through a microwave cake phase now... :)

    I've been making cake-bakes like crazy! By crazy, I mean dessert at least every other night :P I love your variations. I've been mainly sticking to coconut or plain lately but I don't know why I haven't tried a carrot cake one yet!

  • At May 17, 2011 at 12:42 PM, Blogger Emily said…

    I think I'm going to make myself one tonight! It will be tough to pick a flavor!

    Aww it looks so cute and yummy! :) :)

    I love individual treats like this. Vanilla cake is also my favorite, but I would never turn down peanut butter or chocolate.

    I love how simple and easy this is! I've never tried making microwave cakes, but now I really want to try! I don't know what flavour I would make... probably peanut butter to start off with and then pumpkin pie flavoured second!

    This seems too good to be true!!!

    I actually love the microwave cakes--and these look fantastic--but I don't even make those unless I have company. I've cut one into four pieces and topped with dollops of my homemade dairy-free ice cream before and everyone love it! My favorite cake is one that uses almond flour, coconut milk, and coconut sugar. :-) I've even made them flourless using a banana. ;-)

    Oh, this looks good!
    A microwave can do wonderful (and quick!) things!

    Sounds yummy!

    I'm pretty excited about this. I can see it now, brightening my Sunday morning!

    they look great! Ive been a big fan of the microwave banana oat cakes and microwave blueberry banana oat cakes that ive been making for the past 6+ mos or so. TOTALLY changed breakfast and snacktime. So easy and takes about a minute to make. Vegan, gf, FAST, and kidfriendly...saves me! lol

    Love that your kiddos are all over them too :)

  • At May 17, 2011 at 5:37 PM, Blogger Lisa said…

    Those look great! I'd definitely say my fave cake is vanilla!

  • At May 17, 2011 at 8:16 PM, Blogger Lindsay and James Cotter said…

    oh I gotta try this with the peanut flour. Easy and so good is right!

    Now this is a trend I haven't latched onto yet, but dang Sarena, those look awesome! I may have to try. And peanut butter is my latest addiction.

    With a 2nd house loan you are going to receive a one time payment that's being paid off on the fixed period of your time short term loans the online application asks for a lot of basic details just like the above-mentioned ones and in the event you satisfy the standards, you obtain an immediate approval.

    thing payday loans online as there's no appraisal of creditworthiness inside advance loan loan, it is faster in nature.
