Lemon Bar Mug
This recipe didn't come out so great for me. All the ingredients seemed to separate once cooked, but after it cooled it tasted ok, very lemony.

Fluffernutter Mug Cake! This was SO good!! You must try this recipe! I never had a fluffernutter before, so I never knew what I was missing. WOW it was good, now I can have it in CAKE form!

Fluffernutter Mug Cake
Makes 2 mug cakes

Marshmallow Fluff is a Massachusetts invention, and is not readily available outside of New England. The rest of the country must make do with Marshmallow Creme. The fluffernutter sandwich comes from Massachusetts, too. Several attempts at making it the state sandwich have failed, probably due to health concerns. Maybe they should try it on whole wheat bread.

2 tablespoons peanut butter
1 large egg
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
¼ cup milk
¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
¼ cup packed brown sugar
5 tablespoons (¼ cup plus 1 tablespoon) self-rising flour*  
Pinch of kosher salt
2 tablespoons Marshmallow
Fluff or Marshmallow Creme

*For a gluten free version, I used 5 TBL GF flour blend, 3/4 tsp. baking powder and a pinch of salt with these ingredients.)

In a large mug, whisk together the peanut butter, egg, and oil with a fork. Stir in the milk, vanilla, and
brown sugar. Add the flour and salt. Beat the batter until smooth. Fold in the marshmallow fluff. Divide the batter between two mugs. Microwave separately for 1½ to 2½ minutes each until risen and firm.

Topping Ideas: Whipped cream, another dollop of fluff (if you dare), sliced bananas, chopped peanuts, chocolate sauce, or chocolate shavings.

Nutella-Fluffer: Replace the peanut butter with Nutella. Fluffer-Nana-Nutter: Fold sliced ripe bananas into the batter. Porky-Nutter: Fold crumbled bacon into the batter.
