I like to garnish my flourless mug cake with some dairy-free ice cream, or coconut whipped cream, berries, chocolate shavings. The ideas are endless.
How To Make A Paleo Mug Cake:
Step 1 – Gather and measure the ingredients.
Step 2 – In a medium-sized mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients and whisk them together. In another medium-sized mixing bowl, add the wet ingredients and whisk together.
Step 3 – Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir to combine.
Step 4 – Pour the batter into a mug and microwave for about 60 seconds (time will vary depending on your microwave). The top of the cake should be firm and a toothpick should come out clean.
Step 5 – Add garnishes of your choice or eat just the way it is.
Tips When Making A Paleo Mug Cake:
- You could probably substitute maple syrup for coconut sugar, but I have not done this.
- I have not tried this recipe without an egg. The egg helps the Paleo mug cake rise and get fluffy.
- You might be able to substitute almond meal for almond flour, but I have not done this.
- Coconut flour is not an acceptable substitute for blanched almond flour.
- This flourless mug cake can be baked in the oven in small ramekins – 350 degrees F. for about 10-15 minutes.
