Anyways, before I get started on this post, check out my last post if you haven't already, for a fabulous tasting nut butter that I dubbed Cinnamon Utopia Butter.
P.S. I also have some questions at the end of the post that I would love to be answered. Thanks!
I love making food in the microwave! No, I'm not in college yet, but I will be soon, and I figured that the more microwave-recipes I had in my repertoire the better. My first recipe that I posted on here was called Strawberry Microwave Bake. Then I posted my Chocolate Microwave Bake. Both were successful, and everyone loved them because they are so easy and quick to make!
I personally love making things in the microwave because it cuts down on the waiting time, and I am not a patient person, especially when it comes to something sugary, delicious, and BAKED... Like this:
For my next microwave recipe I decided to do something a little more useful for a college student. Like, what happens if one morning you wake up, and are out of bread? The nearest grocery store is 15 minutes away, the bread in the on-site grocery store is WAYYY too expensive, and it just so happens that you have to be in class like... NOW!
Enter this tasty, quick bread that you can make in the microwave. Including preparation and cooking time, you can have this bread ready to eat, slathered with your favorite nut butter in less than 5 minutes!

Here's the bread that I made for breakfast today, toasted and topped with 3/4 tbsp of peanut butter along with a 3oz lean ground turkey patty:
