A Quickie with SunButter - Sunbutter Chocolate Mug Cake

Warm, soft, decadent, intense....hmmmm, it's time for a quickie!  A quickie with SunButter.  In the microwave.  Wait. Huh? Get your mind out of the gutter, this is NOT that kind of website! Grab your kids and make this Quickie SunButter Chocolate Mug Cake for snack time!

Yesterday I was hunting for a quick sweet snack around 3:00 in the afternoon.  The children had finished their schoolwork, the kitchen was relatively clean, and I had a whole hour before I had to start dinner. I kind of wanted Cake-in-a-Cup,but not just the same old chocolate.  A while back, I had printed out a recipe for "SunButter Chocolate Mug Cake." (The SunButter website has a recipe section filled with scrumptious offerings.)  I tweaked the original recipe just by making it dairy free, and changing one other tiny thing. When I went back to get the link for the recipe, it was gone! Here it is! (Thank you, Elizabeth!)  Here's the link to the recipe page on the SunButter website.  If anyone comes across the original recipe, please link it in the comments on this post!

Here's my barely tweaked version.

By ingredients, this mug cake recipe is peanut-free, tree nut-free, dairy-free, egg-free, fish-free, and shellfish-free.  As always, check this ingredient list and your local products to make sure that this recipe is allergy safe for your family and/or friends!
