Packed with protein, these single serve cakes bake in less than 2 minutes in the microwave.


8 tablespoons white whole-wheat Flour (or all-purpose Flour)
4 tablespoon vanilla flavored Whey protein powder (See Note below)
Dash of Salt
8 teaspoons Honey
12 tablespoons reduced-fat (2%) Milk
1 teaspoon Canola oil
4 tablespoons Peanut butter
8 teaspoons Blueberry jam or Strawberry jelly (or another flavor)


1. Spray the inside of four microwave-safe mugs with non-stick cooking spray; set aside.
2. In a small bowl, mix together flour, protein powder and salt with a fork; mix in honey, milk, and oil.
3. Pour batter equally into prepared mugs. Drop a tablespoon of peanut butter into the center of the batter in each mug.
4. Cook one at a time in microwave on HIGH power for 1½ minutes. Top with jam. Serve immediately, as cake hardens as it cools.
