These are probably the least attractive photos I have posted on my blog. This mug cake isn't very picturesque. Despite being ugly, it was a quick, rich chocolate treat.
I am on a new schedule at work. I work nine hours a day and have every other Friday off. This coming Friday will be my first free Friday.
For my Friday off, I think I am going to the aquarium in Baltimore. I have never been, and I have heard it is amazing. My one complaint is that it costs almost $30. Yuck!
I am used to the free museums in DC. If I end up going to the aquarium, I'll go for the whole day to get my money's worth.
This recipe came from a youtube channel. It makes two servings. The ingredients are 1 ripe banana, 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter, 1 large egg, 2 teaspoons honey, and three tablespoons of coco powder.
I first mashed up the banana.
I added peanut butter and an egg to the mashed banana.
I stirred this together before adding the rest of the ingredients.
I added the honey and cocoa powder. The original recipe calls for sugar. I used honey, but the cake was not sweet. If I make this again, I'll use granulated sugar or add more honey.
I did a final stir. I stirred until there were no clumps of cocoa.
I poured half of the batter into a mug and cooked it in a microwave for one minute. You should only cook one cake at a time.
This was a dense and filling cake. It wasn't sweet enough. It tasted a little too much like depravation. If you want to eat a cake, eat the real think. Otherwise, you should just eat some oatmeal or something.
The texture was impressive. It was airy, like a cake.
I feel like I should give this recipe another chance and make it as directed. I like banana, peanut butter, and chocolate.
The results using my modified version were underwhelming. I was impressed by how quick it was to put together and the texture.
