Amaretto Shot Chocolate Mug Cake



Amaretto Shot Mug Cake not at all like other mug cake, this one actually will surprise you!
Watch video below for more instructions
1 egg
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1 tablespoon flour
1 tablespoon cocoa
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
2 to 3 tablespoons peanut butter chips or milk chocolate chips
 Amaretto 1 shot  more or less
chocolate syrup or hot fudge ice cream topping
whipped cream for garnishing
optional mini chocolate chips for garnishing

In a small bowl, stir the egg, brown sugar, peanut butter, flour, cocoa and baking powder with a fork. Stir in the chocolate chips and pour batter into a oil sprayed or greased ramekin or mug.


Microwave for about 1 minute depending on wattage up to 1 minute 10 seconds for over 1000 watt microwave.  Cooking may vary.

 Top with Amaretto first then ice cream or whipped topping and a little chocolate fudge sauce. You can also place this immediately onto a plate to serve or eat right from the mug.

Note: If you don't like peanut butter or have allergies, add half the cake batter then some caramel ice cream topping, end with more cake batter. Proceed to cook no longer than minute.
I hope you smile at these video's I am trying to make.  I find them fun to be able to show how the recipe is done, it's seems a little easier to understand, even though I leave in all the bloopers!  Hope you enjoy making this quick delicious and easy recipe! I needed a little more Amaretto after this movie (smile)

I'm loving the video! I've never made a mug cake...They look so easy.

Claudia said...

The peanut butter surprised me! Never combined it with amaretto. It looks so satisfying - could you Fed-Ex it to me?

The video is grand!

FOODalogue said...

I never bake or make sweets because the portions are generally too large, but this perfect. Looks easy, delicious and no tempting leftovers.

Elisabeth said...

Oh, Claudia-your video is superb! Loved your step-by-step mug cake recipe. So genius, and easy, not to mention droolworthy. Love Amaretto Di Saronno! I would have enjoyed a little extra, as well:DDD
Thanks for sharing, this yummy dessert. I'm sure I can enjoy a large spoonful of it, even with my WW diet!

Look yum! I started making brownie in a mug last summer when it was to hot to bake-- my little boy and I love it. We'll be trying this 'mug' desert too.

Reeni said...

I love mug cakes - you put a delicious twist on it! I'm going to have to go make one. Love your video too!

Shelby said...

I'll definitely try this one Claudia, all I had to read was AMARETTO. ;o)

Tina said...

I love this recipe! So cool that you have the cake out of the mug. Never really like the eating out of the mug, so it is great that you have plated it. Great flavors and I like the addition of the video series! Now I have a familiarity with your voice and showing is always better than the written word. Keep up the videos as well as the awesome food!

Peggy said...

I might have to give mug cake a second shot with this now!

Kiri W. said...

I love mug cakes, this looks fantastic! How could I resist amaretto chocolate anything? :)

Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie said...

I looove amaretteo, but am a little skeptical about mixing it with peanut butter. I love peanut butter too, so it's worth a shot! (no pun intended)

Lacy said...

Oh yummy! This sounds amazing with the chocolate, pb & amaretto combo! Plus hot fudge topping, omg heaven! Sounds sooooo good.

Christine's Pantry said...

I love these flavors and that you can make a single serving! (Otherwise, this recipe might be dangerous!) :)
