Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar sweetener (Swerve recommended)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tablespoons sugar-free chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Melt the Butter
    • Start by placing 1 tablespoon of butter in your mug. Microwave it for about 10-15 seconds until fully melted. This will create the rich base for your mug cake.
  2. Combine the Ingredients
    • Add 1 egg to the melted butter in the mug.
    • Incorporate 3 tablespoons of almond flour, which keeps this dessert low-carb and gluten-free.
    • Add 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder to ensure your mug cake rises properly.
    • Mix in 1 tablespoon of your favorite brown sugar sweetener. Swerve is a great option for a sugar-free alternative.
    • Lastly, add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract for that perfect hint of vanilla flavor.
  3. Mix Well
    • Whisk all the ingredients together until the batter is smooth and well combined. Using a small beater can make this step easier, but a fork or a small whisk will also work just fine.
  4. Add Chocolate Chips
    • Sprinkle 1 to 2 tablespoons of sugar-free chocolate chips on top of the batter. This will add a delightful chocolatey texture to your mug cake.
  5. Microwave the Mug Cake
    • Microwave on high for 90 seconds. The cake will rise and set, becoming a deliciously fluffy mug cake with gooey chocolate chips.
  6. Cool and Enjoy
    • Allow the mug cake to cool for a minute or two before digging in. This helps the cake to set and ensures you won’t burn your mouth.

FAQs

Can I use a different flour instead of almond flour? Yes, you can substitute almond flour with coconut flour, but use only 2 tablespoons as coconut flour is more absorbent.

Can I add other mix-ins to this mug cake? Absolutely! You can add nuts, berries, or even a dash of cinnamon for extra flavor.

What if I don’t have sugar-free chocolate chips? You can use dark chocolate chips or simply omit them for a plain vanilla mug cake.

How can I make this mug cake dairy-free? Replace the butter with coconut oil or a dairy-free margarine.

How long can I store this mug cake? This mug cake is best enjoyed immediately, but you can store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to a day. Reheat in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds before enjoying.
