Keto Mug Cake. Mug cakes are made by pouring cake batter into a coffee mug, microwaving on high (typically for 1-2 minutes) and allowing to cool.
To make your mug cake low carb, sugar-free and gluten-free, you’ll need to swap out a few ingredients for your typical cake batter. Instead of making a cake with flour, sugar and melted butter, you’ll use a keto-friendly sweetener and low carb flour (while many recipes call for almond flour, you’ll use coconut in this one).
Ingredients for Keto Mug Cake :
- Coconut oil
- Coconut flour
- Monk fruit sweetener
- One large egg
- Heavy cream (whipping cream)
- You will also need a coffee mug, two bowls and a microwave.
