Recipe-Cookie Butter Mug Cake

Hey Cats!

Yay Thursday, Yay weekend, Yay it’s almost my birthday! I’m headed to work early this morning, and then to East Texas around 2, and I can’t wait to see my family!

Also, last night I had the best time with a group of my friends. We all met in a Group Communication class our sophomore year, and it was definitely meant to be. We’re all different, yet similar at the same time, and it’s been wonderful getting to know them both in and outside of classes. It’s great to have friends in the same program, especially since a lot of people think that Communication majors don’t take their lives seriously (hi, we do.)…we share the same struggles with advisors, finding resume-boosting internships, and figuring out exactly what to do with our lives. They also all love Jesus, so it’s awesome to have friends to talk about the above-listed things from the same perspective. We got together last night and had a nice little chat, as we do every so often since we don’t have classes together much anymore, and it was such a treat!

You’re probably wondering where this cookie butter recipe is by now. But if you know cookie butter, you know it’s worth waiting for. College Station nor Tyler has a Trader Joe’s, so the last time I went to Houston to visit my bestie Ashley I begged to go, for the sole purpose of purchasing a jar of gold for myself. I typically eat it by the spoonful (just one at a time, obviously), but the other night I decided to get creative. I love mug cakes, and I love cookie butter, so I decided to combine the two. I loosely followed this recipe, but omitted the White Chocolate Wonderful because 1. I don’t even know what that is and 2. I obviously was fresh out.

Please excuse the nibble taken out of the top…I had to see if it was done!

Here’s what you’ll need:

-4 tablespoons flour

-4 tablespoons sugar

-1/4 tsp baking soda

-1 egg

-2 tbsp Cookie Butter (I may have used a little less…this stuff is sacred)

-5 tbsp milk

Here’s what you do:

– Combine all the ingredients together in a bowl, using a whisk or a fork to make sure the cookie butter is fully incorporated. This may take a few minutes, and it will be pretty thin batter.

-Pour into a large mug- I used one of my faves, isn’t it beautiful?

-Microwave for about 2 minutes, or until firm.

Enjoy! You could also throw in some chocolate chips if you like! I ate this and watched the first RHONY reunion, which was anti-climactic. I just want to get to the part where we talk about Aviva throwing her leg. #bye.

That’s all for meow!
