  • Step 1

    Place the butter and chocolate in a 350ml mug and microwave for 10–20 seconds until melted.

  • Step 2

    Add the egg and milk to the mug and beat with a fork until thoroughly combined.

  • Step 3

    Add the sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt, and beat again until smooth, then float a tablespoon of peanut butter on top of the cake mixture but don’t stir—this will sink down as the cake cooks to create a lovely gooey peanut butter centre.

  • Step 4

    Microwave cooking times differ according to the wattage of your oven. If you have a 600 watt microwave, cook for 2 minutes 20 second; allow 2 minutes for an 800 watt oven, and or 1 minute 40 seconds for a 1,000 watt oven. Leave to cool slightly, then serve.

  • Step 5

    While the cake is still warm, top with the remaining peanut butter. Wait for it to melt slightly and then sprinkle with peanuts, curl up on the sofa, and enjoy.

  • Step 6

    Tip - Overdose on chocolate—swap the peanut butter for chocolate spread.
