Hi Bold Bakers!

As far as afternoon snacks go, a Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich has to be one of the most iconic. It’s probably because Peanut Butter and Jelly are staples in most cupboards. We are going to take this sandwich and make it Big & Bold by making it a Microwave Mug Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich. The result is a savory and sweet Mug recipe that will blow the original out of the water.

Try this Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich in a Mug with any flavor of nut butter or jam. They can be mixed up in advance for an even speedier meal. As an added bonus, it does not contain eggs for those of you who don’t eat eggs.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons (1oz/30g) butter
  • 1 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon Strawberry jam

Instructions

  • Place butter into a microwavable mug and heat until just melted. (roughly 20 seconds)
  • Add in the remaining ingredients; mix well with a fork until just combined
  • Once the batter is mixed place the spoonful of jam down into the batter to get a jammy center
  • Microwave for 45 seconds - 1 minute or until is firm on top. (Cooking time is based on my 1200W Panasonic Inverter Microwave so your timing might vary). Always keep a close eye on your mug while in the microwave so it doesn’t over flow or over cook.
  • Let it cool or enjoy it straight away!

I think I skimped on the peanut butter, since I’m not the biggest fan, but this recipe was delicious. It even turned out right on the first try!

I liked the flavours and the idea, but the result still tasted very flour-y and not cakey at all.
Not the right texture. Something’s missing.

The recipe was very delicious, although a little bit crumbly~ Does it matter if you use crunchy or creamy peanut butter? Thank you!

Hi, Gemma. How are you and your family? My family and I are fine. Today I made microwave mug peanut butter and jelly sandwich. It tested very delicious 😋, mouthwatering, and tempting. I enjoyed it very much like if I was eating a true peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

I was really looking forward to this recipe, but I used blackberry jam instead of strawberry. It didn’t really taste that good, and the only thing I didn’t do was put the jam in the middle because I didn’t want to use too much jam. Do i have to do that to make it right?

I accidently came on your video while looking for how to make frozen pops,my husbund & i are in our 70’s & so we don’t eat a lot so these mug meals sound perfect,my microwave is 1100 so would i just add 10 seconds to the time? going by your 1200 wattage

In the recipe, you didn’t mention mixing together the wet ingredients before the dry ingredients, and I think that’s a very important part of this recipe because when I made it, I didn’t know that so I just mixed in all the ingredients all at once like the recipe says, then it turned out like a dough and nothing like how it looked in the video. I went back and watched the video and found where the recipe had gone wrong. Gemma I think you need to fix what the recipe says.

First round came out burnt. Second try came out super crumbly, tasteless and not cake like at all. Do not even try this. Gemma is the recipe right? Also the instructions aren’t clear – should state the order in which the ingredients are mixed in. Also can you put the weights in beside just the butter?
