I don’t know who came up with the idea of a single-serve dessert, but I feel like it might have been a parent who just needed a little treat after a long day. This is when I need a quick, easy single serve dessert that I don’t have to share with anyone.

My favorite single serve recipe is my peanut butter cookie dough. I make this way too much. I am just such a BIG lover of peanut butter. I love having a sweet treat in the evening once my kids are bed for the night. Usually while I am curled up on the couch with a good book or a watching something on Netflix.
I love using these ramekins for my mug cakes, they are microwave and oven safe. I have been without both at times which makes this important to me. Our broke in the last move, and I have yet to replace them.
Picking your single serve mug
Now, I have been using my soup mug, which is only microwave safe, so that microwave had better not quit working. I have liked having that hand to hold on to, especially sitting on the couch so that there is less chance I am going to drop it.
You can use a regular drinking mug, as long as you can put it it in the microwave. Please make sure you mug in microwave safe, I’d hate for you to have your mug and dessert explode. Then no one is happy.
Beware, your dish of course will be quite warm depending on how long it goes in the microwave for and burning your fingers isn’t going to make you happy and relaxed. Take care removing it.
