Low Carb Dessert | 2-Minute Keto Mug Cake - Diet Plus 4 U

Low Carb Dessert | 2-Minute 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).

To make your keto mug cake, you’ll need these ingredients:

  1. Coconut oil
  2. Coconut flour
  3. Monk fruit sweetener
  4. One large egg
  5. Heavy cream (whipping cream)

You will also need a coffee mug, two bowls and a microwave.
