Chocolate Almond Keto Mug Cake
Have your cake and eat it too with this quick, easy and delicious chocolate almond flourless low carb / keto mug cake recipe.
- 1 egg beaten
- 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp almond extract
- 5 grams Keto friendly chocolate chips (about 1 heaping tsp)
- 1 tbsp Erythritol
- 1 tbsp heavy whipping cream
- 1 tsp unsalted butter
Place butter into a ramekin or mug and melt the butter in the microwave. Swirl it around to coat the inside of the container. You can also use a cooking spray to grease the inside of the container if you prefer instead of butter.
In a small bowl, mix together the beaten egg and the heavy whipping cream.
Add vanilla and almond extracts to the egg mixture.
In another small bowl, combine the cocoa powder, erythritol and baking powder, stir to combine well.
Pour the dry ingredients into the greased ramekin or mug.
Add the wet ingredients on top of the dry ones, and stir well with a spoon or fork until the mixture is smooth.
Toss in the chocolate chips.
Microwave for 90 seconds.
Remove the ramekin or mug from the microwave after a minute, and either serve in the container, or dump out and serve on a plate of your choice.
Optional: Crush up 1/4 cup of raspberries if desired, and serve on top of the cake.
Note: nutrition information does not include optional fresh raspberries.
This recipe comes to around 6 grams of net carbs. It may vary depending upon the specific products you use. It's also on the high end of what I consider keto but since it's a dessert, I think you have to assume it will be a bit higher in carbs than a non-dessert.
