Yes, you read that correctly – one minute peanut butter cake that you make in the microwave. Yes, I was confused as well, just keep reading and I promise it’ll all come full circle.
Okay, so here’s a funny story. I’m reading through the millions of blogs that I follow on Google Reader and I come across a post by Cassie from Back To Her Roots called “Sweet Saturday: One Minute Peanut Butter Cake.”
So I’m immediately intrigued, right? Because for a no frills cook, what is better than a cake you can make in ONE MINUTE?! I keep reading and find out that this cake gets cooked in the microwave.
Okay, so now I’m hooked. I have to try this. However, while intrigued, I was also EXTREMELY skeptical. Cakes take forever. You have to turn on the oven to make one! It makes the kitchen so HOT. It’s like 86 degrees outside with 100% humidity. There is NO way this works.
Ladies and gentlemen, let me be the first to tell you: THIS WORKS. And it’s DELICIOUS. Check out Cassie’s post for the recipe. Just a side note, I’m still eating this and I can’t stop. I may have to make another one. AND I added about a tablespoon of dried cranberries into mine as well – amazingggg. Cassie’s post tells you to cook this in the microwave for 30 seconds, but mine took about a minute, so just use your judgment depending on the power of your microwave.
I LOVE no frills recipes like this. Thank you, Cassie!
