What is a Mug Cake?

A Mug Cake is a single-serve dessert gaining popularity for its easy preparation and quick method. Most mug cakes are microwaved and therefore need minimal time, from a few seconds up to just a few minutes cooking. 

Mug cake is usually made with a mixture of flour, fat, and a raising agent, where all of the ingredients are mixed, baked and served in a single cup or a mug. 

Topped with either fruits, icing, whipped cream, or sprinkles, they are a perfect quick and easy dessert when in a hurry. 

How many carbohydrates are in a Chocolate Keto Mug Cake?

Even though our recipe is a single-serve, the amount is so filling that I would have preferred to have it in 2 servings. 

But whatever you choose, you get 2 grams of carbohydrates with 2 servings or 4 grams of carbohydrates and 1 gram of fiber for a single serving. 

This easy Keto Chocolate Mug Cake Recipe contains 3 net carbs per cake.

Can I bake keto mug cake in the oven?

Although our recipe is done with a Microwave method in less than 45 seconds, you can use an oven if you wish. 

Simply follow the instructions and fill the mixture into an oven-safe mug or ramekin. 

Bake in a preheated oven at 190 Celsius or 370 Fahrenheit for 15 minutes.

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAKING MICROWAVE CHOCOLATE CAKE IN A MUG

First Step: Prepare Ingredients for Chocolate Mug Cake

Second Step: Mix in Butter with Sweetener

Let us start first by mixing better together with a sweetener.

I have picked a bowl as it is much easier to mix it in.

Third Step: Add other Ingredients

Once sweetener and butter are mixed, you can slowly add other ingredients.

Add one egg and whisk together. Add a few drops of vanilla extract and whisk together.

The same goes for blanched almond flour and cinnamon.

Fifth Step: Fill your Mug and Microwave

Now it’s the time to fill your mug or a cup that is microwave safe.

As I have already mentioned, I feel that the recipe is more suitable for two portions rather than one.

Split it into 2 cups or use just one single mug if you would like to.

The size of the mug should be big enough to fill your batter halfway.

Fill your Mug and Microwave for 45 seconds on high.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Size of the mug – should be big enough to fill the mixture halfway only. 
  • Nut allergies – use sunflower flour.
  • Dairy-Free – swap butter with almond oil
  • Addition – a blob of peanut butter in the middle will make it a perfect chocolate peanut butter mug cake
